Short BIO  

In 1976 Mark Webber was born in Australia, a suburban town of Queanbeyan close to Canberra. It was in his country where he started to test the tracks through Karting. After remarkably progressing in several minor Australian categories, he made the decision of moving to Europe in the quest for a long and successful career as a professional race car driver.

Mark passed through the British Formula 3 and Formula 3000 before reaching Formula 1. In 2001 he was rewarded for his efforts by becoming Arrows test driver, and the following year, at the hands of his now manager Flavio Briatore, he went to Benetton to perform the same duties.

His first real chance came in 2003, when Arrows brought him back but this time as official driver. Webber started with a bang by finishing fifth in his first Formula 1 race, and to make things more rewarding, in front of his people (Australian GP 2003). Those were the only points gathered that year; however, he gained respect because of his professionalism and unquestionable skills.
