Description

Mark Webber was at the centre of one of the most captivating chapters in the history of Formula One. In 2010, while racing for Red Bull, he and his team mate Sebastian Vettel went head to head for the World Championship. There could only be one winner.

Since retiring from Formula One Mark has concentrated on endurance racing, including the legendary Le Mans 24 Hour race. He hit the front pages of newspapers around the world in December 2014 when he slammed into the barricades in the final round of the FIA World Endurance Championship in South America, and was lucky to escape with his life. But the controversy of his relationship on and off the track with Vettel, who went on to win multiple world titles, has never been far beneath the surface. Here, for the first time, Webber tells the inside story of one of Formula One's most intriguing battles - it is a story that goes to the heart of why the sport is loved by millions of fans around the world.

In his trademark straight-talking, no-nonsense style Mark reveals his amazing life on and off the Formula One race track. From his first taste of karting to his F1 debut in 2002, scoring Minardi's first points in three years at the Australian Grand Prix, through to his first win with Red Bull at the 2009 German Grand Prix and the year he should have been crowned World Champion. Mark Webber's journey to the top of Formula One was every bit as determined and committed as his racing. Aussie Grit is his searingly honest story.

Includes a foreword by Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart.

    As a huge F1 fan, this was one book I had to have. Having met the great man himself and knowing what a down to earth guy he was I knew this book wouldn't be anything but true and completely honest. Mark's rise to F1 is so well documented and reading this shows just how hungry he was for it. Mark was clearly not out for fame and fortune but just wanted to race. This book also honestly accounts the Red Bull years and in a way is quite shocking to see inside the big Formula 1 teams and the politics involved and sometimes the underhand tactics of other drivers. This book is a must read, honest and fair account of how Mark Webber achieved such great things and is must for all F1 fans and aspiring drivers alike.
