Webber “proud” of career after second in last race

2013 Brazilian Grand Prix

Mark Webber, Red Bull, Interlagos, 2013Mark Webber said he felt pride in his achievements as a Formula One driver after finishing on the podium in his final race.

Webber took second place in the Brazilian Grand Prix behind team mate Sebastian Vettel. It was his last race before he joins Porsche in the World Endurance Championship next year.

“It was a very good finish to my career,” said Webber. “A good fight with all the guys I enjoyed fighting with for most of my career: Seb, Fernando [Alonso], Lewis [Hamilton], Nico [Rosberg], all the guys which have been in the window for the last five or six years.”

“I want to thank the team, I enjoyed the last few laps,” he added. “It was a very nice way for me to finish.”

“I want to thank everyone in Australia, I wouldn’t be here where I am without the support I had in the early days and it’s been a thoroughly enjoyable career. A great journey, one which I’m proud of. And there’s been so many people who’ve played a special role in my career, so they know who they all are – thankyou very much if you’re watching.

“Enjoy watching Formula One next year with these guys. But off to Porsche, looking forward to it, thank you very much.”

    Bye Webber and thanks for the memories. Too many to mention but the ‘Britney’s in the wall’ and ‘not bad for a number two driver’ have to rank up there with the greatest radio comments ever.

    Sad to see him leave F1, but happy to see him start his career anew. The only thing I’m sad about is that there is so little BS in the WEC that his outspoken honest nature will probably go to waste! Thanks Mark, looking forward to seeing you at Silverstone in April!

    Well done Mark, give ‘em hell in WEC next year!
