Publisher's Summary

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 teammate, Sebastian Vettel, went head to head for the world championship. There could be only 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 racetrack, from his first taste of karting to his F1 debut in 2002, from 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 story change my perspective of Mark Webber.

I used to really like Mark Webber, now I realize he is just a dumb jock. he blames everyone else for his performances and wouldn't be in the racing position he has been if it wasn't for his partner Ann. the story definitely was not written by him.

Great read,

Fierce honest and sincere...takes you into the inner wheeling and dealing of F1 and what it took to get there. Also a balanced view of all drivers, and personalities over Mark’s career, great read for any F1 or motorsport fan.

Somewhat disappointing

I love F1 and always liked Webber. It is a shame that he didn't narrate his own book because Osmond does not have the charisma of a racer and his delivery is pedestrian. I assume this is why Webber's story was a bit more of a yawn that it might have been. Certainly Mark would not gave mispronounced so many, mainly French, names and places wrong.
