Mark Webber Wins German Grand Prix

My site was nominated for Best Blog of All Time!

Australian driver Mark Webber won his first ever Grand Prix with a comfortable victory at the Nurburgring in Germany

The Red Bull driver was nine seconds clear of his team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with Ferrari's Felipe Massa in third.

Championship leader Jenson Button came home 5th.

It was Webber's 130th Grand Prix and the victory gives him a place in the Formula One record books, as no driver has taken so long to achieve their maiden triumph.

And it was a remarkable victory, coming despite Webber being handed a drive-through penalty for a first-corner collision.

It was a day of frustration for Button and the Brawn team.

They got their pit-stop strategy wrong, and never looked like halting Webber's march to victory.

But it was another disasterous day for reigning champion Lewis Hamilton.

Starting from 5th he surged through the field at the start and looked like being in front at the first corner.

But he was clipped, ironically by Webber, suffered a puncture and trailed home in last place.
