GP Week : Issue 68
MARK Webber has revealed that as nice as his Brazilian Grand Prix win was, it wasn't as good as his maiden win at this year's German Grand Prix back in July. Webber, who had never won a Grand Prix before the Nurburgring race, is now a two-time race winner, and says while this was a more "controlled" win, it's not as good as the original. "I think the first one was pretty nice, there's no question about it," he said. "It's nice to get another one, but probably Nürburgring was a little bit better, because it was a big relief more than anything. This one was more of a controlled fashion, I suppose, and although not too dissimilar to the Nürburgring, but I suppose I could only lose this one. "I put myself in a very, very good position after yesterday in the first stint to win the race, and then I had about 45 laps of getting it home. "I went a little bit on the kerbs in a few places here and there and just had to give myself a bit of an uppercut and say 'mate, just bring it together'' and remind myself that I'm not in 10th, I'm in the lead, so you just control it. It was a pretty good day." Webber's previous best finish in Brazil was a pair of ninth places, adding to the importance of the win. "I didn't know it was that, but I had a reasonable idea that I've had a pretty rough run here!" he said. "There have been lots of firsts this year and this is another one, in terms of getting a good result." Webber also made mention of what was a big day for Australians in motorsport, with Jason Crump winning the World Speedway Championship, and Casey Stoner winning the Australian MotoGP at Phillip Island. "Also, I just want to add that it was a good weekend for a good friend of mine, Jason Crump, who won the World Speedway Championship. He's very, very injured and I'm very happy for him that he's won the world title. "And Casey [Stoner[ won the motorbikes, so it was a good day for us guys." Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! F1 NEWS >> 10
