Memories of Aussie Grit

In the wake of Mark Webber’s retirement, a look back to a race weekend I’ll always remember; Abu Dhabi 2010, and he’d just missed out on the world championship.

I was the only Aussie journalist to get one-on-one interview time with him that night at the Yas Marina Circuit, and it was Mark at his most raw: brutally honest, unscripted and unedited, and nothing was off-limits.

For those of us who work in an industry with so much spin, he’ll be missed.
