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.

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.

A GOOD INSIGHT INTO THE PRESSURES

A GOOD INSIGHT INTO THE PRESSURES, OTHER THAN RACING, IN THE LIFE OF A F1 DRIVER. NEVER REALISED THAT MARK WEBBER HAD ENJOYED SUCH A LONG CAREER IN F1. WELL WRITTEN – DOWN TO EARTH AND TO THE POINT.

A good read
