After quite an incredible race for Mark Webber, he's won the German Grand Prix
by nearly 10 seconds over team-mate Sebastian Vettel (pictured left).

Stolen from F1-live
Mark Webber overcame a questionable drive through penalty in a thrilling German
Grand Prix to record his fist Grand Prix win by some margin from Red Bull
Renault team-mate Sebastian Vettel. Significantly, the Milton Keynes-based team
have secured their second straight one-two result as rivals Brawn Mercedes
continue to struggle at this critical mid-season point.
It was not a straight forward victory for Webber however as the start saw fellow
front-row starter Rubens Barrichello pulled alongside the Red Bull on the run to
turn one. Webber moved to his right and light contact was made. It was a racing
incident but a few laps later the team were informed that Webber, running second
at the time to Barrichello, must take a drive through penalty.
A little good fortune would come to his aid however as Barrichello made his stop
and found himself stuck behind Felipe Massa who was running a long first stint
and therefore relatively heavy on fuel. This allowed Webber to lap quickly at
the front of the field ahead of his own first stop for fuel.
Webber’s impressive pace allowed him to exit the pits close behind Barrichello
and ahead of Button and when it became apparent that the Brawn Mercedes team
were three-stopping both drivers, Webber knew the race was his for the

Nice pic dude, thanks. I can just drool all over a pic of a good F-1 car. The
technology and refinement involved in these cars is nothing short of
My 1st memories of F-1 cars in the mid 60s were nothing like these. I just wish
I'd have paid more attention to the "turbo years", which were in a
word ... insane. With 1200hp and a ridiculous hp to weight ratio they were
Oh Shit FAST
