Mark Webber becomes a Michelin Man

On the eve of this year’s Australian Formula One Grand Prix, former Aussie ace Mark Webber has been appointed as an ambassador for Michelin, the tyre that took him to his first F1 race at Albert Park in 2002. Webber, who is also a Porsche motorsport representative and has tested the new electric Taycan, said he still has vivid memories of his first F1 race – with the underdog Minardi team – even though it was 17 years ago.

Mark Webber: “I’ve always been a Porsche guy. Even when I had to pay for them myself.”

The GT2 RS launch in Portugal gave us a chance to catch up with Mark Webber, recently retired from front-line racing duties but now working in both development and as a brand ambassador for Porsche. The 41-year old Aussie was brought along to give passenger rides on the circuit at Portimao, but sodden conditions put paid to that. Instead, we talked to him about Porsche 911s.
