Mark Alan Webber (born 27 August 1976)[1] is an Australian former FF1M driver.

Overview

After some racing success in Australia, Webber moved to the United Kingdom in 1995 to further his motorsport career. Webber made his FF1M debut in 2000 for the Dark Wolf Racing team but was not retained for 2001 and could not find a seat elsewhere.

Rather than sit out the season he decided to join the MRD Junior team in FF2M, FF1M's support series. After a season of regularly challenging for wins in which he finished 3rd in the championship he was signed by the Pedersen team on a four season deal.

It was at Pedersen where Webber found the majority of his success in FF1M taking all 11 of his Pole Positions with the team and four of his five career victories. His best season came in 2005 where he finished in 3rd place in the drivers championship.

Following five seasons with Pedersen, Webber spent an uncompetitive season with Tornado before returning to Dark Wolf in 2008. Webber did not see out the year however and was replaced in the team after ten races by Alexander Wurz.

Webber returned to FF1M in 2009 with Australian back of the grid team Autodynamics the following but only qualified for 11 out of 18 races. He then moved to LeBlanc in the following season where, despite the car having terrible reliability, he recorded his final victory in the last race of the season at Suzuka.

Webber was afforded one final opportunity at a top team in 2011 when he signed for Tornado but whilst the car itself was quick, Webber found himself dogged by poor reliability which stifled both his, and his teams championship challenges.

When the series returned from hiatus in 2012 Webber found himself without a drive and had to settle for a season with the "making up the numbers" Ajay team before finally announcing his retirement at the end of the 2012 season.
