Born in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Mark Webber is an exceptionally talented racing car driver, and a true sportsman in the very essence of the word. Webber endured a tough path to reach his goal - formula one
; the most elite car racing championship in the world. When he made it into F1 with backmarker team Minardi
, Webber stunned the F1 world with a brilliant debut drive to finish fifth in his home race at Albert Park.
In 2007, Webber will race with Red Bull Racing, after two years of slow and fragile cars at his current team - Williams. There is no doubt that Webber has the talent to mount a serious bid for the F1 championship, but F1 is a "fickle game" (to quote Mark), and it's a matter of being with the right team at the right time. Realistically, Mark hopes that Red Bull could be the right place at the right time by 2008.
He is also known outside of formula one for his charity work & The Mark Webber Challenge.
Mark Webber will line up alongside Veteran David Coulthard when he joins red bull racing in 2007.
