“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Mark Webber (Australian Celebrity)
Mark Alan Webber, is an Australian Formula One driver. He was born in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, son of Alan, a local motorcycle dealer. He is the first Australian to race in Formula One since David Brabham in 1994.
After some racing success in Australia, Webber moved to the UK in 1995 to further his motorsports career. He continued to win, although he gained his biggest headlines while driving for the Mercedes-Benz sports car squad at Le Mans in 1999 where he had two spectacular accidents during practice and warmup in which an aerodynamic fault caused the car to somersault off the Mulsanne straight. After Mercedes' withdrawal from the race, Webber began a partnership with fellow Australian Paul Stoddart, at that time owner of the European racing Formula 3000 team, which eventually took them both into Formula One when Stoddart bought the Minardi team.
