Mark Webber | Speaker Biography

Mark Webber, a nine-time Formula 1 Grand Prix winner and the 2015 FIA World Endurance Champion, is widely recognized as one of motorsport's biggest stars. Even today, he remains fully active in the sport as both a brand ambassador and broadcaster.

Mark is most famous for his twelve-year Formula 1 career, which he retired from at the end of 2013. Throughout his time in Formula 1, he participated in 215 races, securing nine victories, including the prestigious Monaco and British Grands Prix. He also achieved an impressive record of 42 podium finishes, 13 pole positions, and 19 fastest laps.

From 2010 to 2013, Mark was a key member of the dominant Red Bull Racing team. During this period, he finished third in the World Drivers' Championship three times, including his final season. Alongside his teammate Sebastian Vettel, they won the Formula 1 World Championship for Constructors for four consecutive seasons.

After retiring from Formula 1, Mark wasn't ready to give up competitive racing. In 2014, he embarked on an exciting new chapter in his career by joining the Porsche team for sports car racing. Partnering with teammates Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley, Mark had three highly successful seasons in the FIA World Endurance Championship, driving the 919 Hybrid LMP1 car. Together, they achieved fourteen podiums, including eight wins. In the 2015 Le Mans 24 Hour race, they finished second, contributing to Porsche's historic 1-2 finish. Mark and his teammates were crowned World Drivers' Champions in the same year. Mark's association with Porsche continued when he became a global brand ambassador for the renowned sports car brand in 2017.

Aside from his racing career, Mark has always had a passion for outdoor activities and giving back to his home country. In 2003, during the F1 off-season, he launched the Mark Webber Tasmania Challenge, a challenging adventure race designed to raise funds for charities in Australia. Since its inception, the event has raised over $1.5 million AUD.

Since stepping away from Formula 1, Mark has also ventured into the world of sports broadcasting. Known for his knowledge and quick wit, he has been a part of Channel Ten's Australian Grand Prix coverage since 2014. Additionally, he has been a member of Channel 4's F1 commentary team for their UK terrestrial broadcast coverage since 2017, presenting alongside David Coulthard and host Steve Jones.

In recognition of his contributions to motorsport and his philanthropic efforts, Mark received the Officer of the Order of Australia, the highest national honor, in the 2017 Australia Day Honors list. This prestigious award was given for his distinguished service as a competitor and ambassador in motorsport, as well as his fundraising and patronage of various medical and youth support organizations.
