Lunch with Mark Webber.
July 10th, 2018. 12.30-3.30pm.
He was one of the most popular drivers on the Formula One grid, a hugely successful figure following in the footsteps of a great Australian heritage of motor racing stars. Now, two days after the 2018 British Grand Prix, Mark Webber will be the LSC's July sporting lunch guest. Mark enjoyed a long career in F1 alongside some of the greats of today, starting out with Minardi, then Jaguar and then Williams. But it was with Red Bull when he jostled with teammate Sebastian Vettel that he became best known and much loved for his "say it how it is" approach in and out of the car. Mr "Aussie Grit" also proved to be remarkably consistent, notching up 9 wins,13 poles and 42 podiums as he finished 6th, 4th and, three times, 3rd in the drivers world championship. A proper racer, he only retired from F1 in 2014 and then, promptly, won the World Endurance Championships in his Porsche in 2015. Amusing, down to earth but one of the stars of F1 over the last 15 years, Mark Webber is bound to take the chequered flag first at another fantastic sporting lunch.
