Former Red Bull and Williams Formula 1 driver and reigning World Endurance champion Mark Webber will retire from professional motorsport at the end of his current Porsche LMP1 campaign.

The Australian's last race will be the 2016 WEC finale at Bahrain on November 19, and he will stay on with Porsche as a "special representative".

Roy and HG used to refer to Mark Webber as "Australia's DNF specialist".
I don't mind the bloke personally, but I thought that comment was gold.

Still had to be a great driver to get to where he was but a couple of silly mistakes of his own doing cost him a world championship. If Vettel was never born he might have had 2 or more titles and become a legend.

Absolutely agree. But I remember the first time Roy pulled out that comment and they had to go to a break because HG couldn't stop laughing. I used to love those moments between those two...

What the fuck would those morons know?

Alongside rally legend Walter Röhrl (69) Webber is now the make’s second representative. Both are distinguished by a successful racing career as well as by a huge affinity to Porsche.

Quote
His affinity to Porsche, however, is nothing new. As a teenager he drove a 911, borrowed from a friend, and when he bought his own first Porsche he went straight for a Turbo model. Today the collection includes a 918 Spyder, a 911 R, a GT3 RS (991), a 911 GT2 RS (997), a 911 GT3 RS 4.0, a 1954 356 Cabriolet and a 1974 2.7 Carrera.

Given the above and that he ended up a Drivers' World Champion, I would say that he "finished" just fine.

Lighten up. Just a bit of humour. You don't find them funny, I did. Life goes on. Mark is good. Never said he wasn't.
