Webber on pole: go Mark!

Something more positive to consider this weekend is that Aussie F1 driver Mark Webber is on pole position for tonight’s (10pm Aussie time) German Grand Prix.

It was brilliant watching him clinch it from Vettel last night, and also well done McClaren’s Lewis Hamilton making 2nd.

Vettel’s lead in the championship is pretty much unassailable, but who doesn’t want to see Mark win a race this year regardless? It would certainly help him to at least better secure his tenure of 2nd place in the championship (and no, 2nd ain’t first but it’s better than 3rd which Mark got last year).

Just get that start right this time, Mark!

    And so was Cadel Evans last night. Flick over to him cruising down the Champs Elysee in the yellow jersey from 10 pm tonight SBS1. Hope they play Waltzing Matilda as well for Crikey Cadel.

    • Missed that.Overall, shaping up as a good weekend for Aussie sport. We smashed South Africa in the Tr-Nations on Friday, too. 39-18 or thereabouts.

      Looking forward to both tonight. Think I’ll have to bandage up my hand tomorrow from a severe case of RSI caused by frantic Remote Control overuse for the next two hours! At least the bikes don’t finish until 2am, the GP finishes at midnight.

      And they’re off…. (well any minute now) Good luck to all the Aussies all over the world, Go Team!

      • He fucked it again…

      • He keeps fucking the launch. Dagnamit!

      • The launch is half the race and he keeps making it so bloody hard for himself. Frustrating is an understatement.

    As long as Webber doesn’t have to race to team orders (to give Vettel a leg up) it should be a good race 🙂

  1. I don’t think they’ll pull that stunt, not with Vettel’s virtually unassailable lead and a brilliant opportunity to consolidate Mark’s 2nd place in the drivers’ championship standing.

    It was disappointing them not letting Mark past last time, but it was understandable, too. With a lap to go and only 3 points the difference juxtaposed to the real chance of throwing away 33, it was a fair call by team boss, Horner (much as I hate to say that).

    • LOL, they would have gotten around the circuit faster at the Canadian GP this year and the Korean GP last year!

  1. No trackbacks yet.

Surely you're thinking something...
