F1 – Mark Webber Imposes and Triumph in the Grand Prix of Germany

After 132 races, the Australian Mark Webber, who debuted in the Formula One at the Grand Prix of Australia in 2002, achieved with merit his first victory by imposing himself with absolute dominance in the Grand Prix of Germany, which is the ninth event of this season’s calendar. This is a victory that puts Webber in the third place among the list of Australian drivers that have managed to be at the podium throughout the history of Formula One; the other drivers who have achieved this feat were Jack Brabham and Alan Jones. This respectable victory with which Webber broke his long streak of defeats, has also let him appear as one of the pilots that has taken longer to reach his first victory in the highest category of motorsport in Europe and one of the most recognized worldwide. For this season, which is led by Britain’s Jenson Button of the Brawn GP team, Mark Webber alongside with his teammate Sebastian Vettel, of Red Bull Racing, are the ones who have become the strongest and closest rivals for the leaders. Brawn GP have been heavily pressured since the beginning of the season by the Australian and the German, who race after race make their presence felt on the track since they are the closest pursuers of the new dominant team. This has been demonstrated in three occasions in which both pilots of the Austrian team have managed to ascend to the podium together. Though in the previous occasions, the triumph has been for Vettel, this time it was Webber, who also won the pole position, the one who imposed himself before the leaders and his teammate. From the first position, Webber departed at full speed, determined to win and not to be exceeded, however, this same intention was the one that led him to hit the single-seater of Rubens Barrichello at the very moment in which he attempted to overtake him entering to the first turn of the trail. Aware of this event, the authorities responsible for ensuring the order and security of the competition took the decision to penalize Webber later, based on the danger that his risky maneuver represented. The punishment for the Red Bull driver was to enter the pits area, something that made his team and all the assistants think that this would be a great disadvantage that would make him lose his precious position. Back on the track, Webber advanced quickly to reach Barrichello, and from that moment on the competition became a tough fight between these two drivers, who were unwilling to give in to the pressure they were putting on one another. But once again it came to light the problem that the Brawn GP team have to get their tires to go at a proper temperature when the track is cool, something that already happened to them in Britain and was one of the factors that, as much there as it did here, prevented them from winning. This inconvenience for Barrichello was undoubtedly an advantage for Webber, who quickly accelerated and took the lead again as he was closely followed by the Brazilian, who had to make his first stop through the pits zone and this action had to be repeated twice more. As a result, he lost the second position. At the head of the race, Webber was unstoppable; he stood firmly by not getting overtaken by any of the other drivers, who were pursuing him closely. The race progressed and the competition became increasingly more intense with the Australian at the top, while the second place was strongly fought by Vettel and Button, but the second Red Bull Racing driver resisted, passing the finish line behind Webber, whereas the third place was taken by the Ferrari driver, Felipe Massa, after Button lost his pace between some other drivers who obstructed him.
