The 2013 Bahrain Grand Prix holds a particularly special meaning for Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber, as he will celebrate his 200th grand prix today.
Webber made his debut in 2002 for backmarkers Minardi, before spending a couple of years with Jaguar and then moving to Williams for the 2005 season. He found some success with the British team, but he opted to move to Red Bull in 2007 to partner David Coulthard. In 2009, he was joined by Sebastian Vettel in what turned out to be Red Bull’s breakthrough season. Webber won his first grand prix in Germany, and then scored his second win in Brazil on his way to 4th in the championship.
2010 saw Webber win four races, but he missed out on the world championship at the final race, eventually finishing third behind champion Vettel and Fernando Alonso. 2011 saw Vettel run away with the title, and Webber played a support role, claiming just one win in Brazil. However, he was back to his best in 2012 to win for a second time in Monaco, and also win his first British Grand Prix. He could not keep up with Vettel and Alonso towards the end of the season though, and he eventually finished the championship in sixth place.
Webber’s career has seen some spectacular highs, and many regard him as the second greatest Australian driver of all time behind triple champion Jack Brabham. His team honored him this morning with a cake and celebration in the Red Bull garage, and he will be hoping to make it a 200th race to remember despite starting 7th on the grid.
Sebastian Vettel and Helmut Marko did not attend the celebration this morning.
