Mark Webber was at the centre of one of the most captivating chapters in the history of Formula One. In 2010, while racing for Red Bull, he and his team mate Sebastian Vettel went head to head for the World Championship. There could only be one winner.

Since retiring from Formula One Mark has concentrated on endurance racing, including the legendary Le Mans 24 Hour race. He hit the front pages of newspapers around the world in December 2014 when he slammed into the barricades in the final round of the FIA World Endurance Championship in South America, and was lucky to escape with his life. But the controversy of his relationship on and off the track with Vettel, who went on to win multiple world titles, has never been far beneath the surface. Here, for the first time, Webber tells the inside story of one of Formula One's most intriguing battles – it is a story that goes to the heart of why the sport is loved by millions of fans around the world.

In his trademark straight-talking, no-nonsense style Mark reveals his amazing life on and off the Formula One race track. From his first taste of karting to his F1 debut in 2002, scoring Minardi's first points in three years at the Australian Grand Prix, through to his first win with Red Bull at the 2009 German Grand Prix and the year he should have been crowned World Champion. Mark Webber's journey to the top of Formula One was every bit as determined and committed as his racing. Aussie Grit is his searingly honest story.

Includes a foreword by Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart.

This is a really great, honest account of a racing career. I really enjoyed every page of a story of a man who just wanted to race on even terms at the highest level.

A great Aussie F1 read

 on 18 February 2016
This book is a must for Mark Webber fans but also for anyone interested in formula one as it gives a great insight into the F1 world. There is plenty of detail from Mark about his early days on his quest to become a F1 driver and the struggles and challenges on the way. It is great to hear his side of the story on what went on while he was at Red Bull including ‘multi 21’ and “not bad for a number 2” driver.

I chose this rating because Mark gave me an insight in what happens in the Formula 1 racing world. I have been watching the Formula 1 racing for a few years now and have been intrigued to know what happens behind the scenes. I liked Mark’s book because he says how it is. I would recommend this book to anyone who follows Mark and wants know about his time in Formula 1.

What a journey!

What a fantastic read. Always highly rated Mark Webber as a driver, shame he never won an F1 title, but rate him even more as a person with his open and honest book – what a career (so far!)

The stoory of a man who went such a long way without compromising his most valuable principles and highest standards of sportsma

By Noel Maughan
From many years of watching Frank’s Prix on TV one knew that Webber had principles and standards far higher than most around him, particularly those so call lecture team mates in the more recent past. This is hinder lined by the fair and principled way he treats these people in his story. Yodo not often see this and it is to be admired and highly valued. And this book is to be accordingly held in high esteem. As an added benefit, for a Grand Prix fan the book us an easy and enjoyable read.
