Mark Webber made his Formula One debut in 2002. His first F1 win was with Red Bull Racing at the 2009 German Grand Prix which followed second places at the 2009 Chinese, Turkish and British Grand Prix. By the end of 2009, Webber had scored eight podiums, including another victory in Brazil. His eight podiums in 2009 compares to only two podiums in the first seven years of his career, and he added ten more podiums in 2010. Webber finished the 2010 season in third place, losing out to teammate Sebastian Vettel in the final race of the season. Webber added another race victory in the 2011 Brazilian Grand Prix, as he once again finished third behind champion Vettel and runner-up Jenson Button. Webber partnered Vettel again in the 2012 season, outperforming him in the early season and looked to be a major title contender, finally finishing the season in 6th place.
