Mea Culpa: Interview with Mark Webber
In under two weeks, Mark Webber will step into a Ferrari-powered RB2 at Barcelona for his first run with Red Bull Racing. It will be the end of two years with the Williams team, which he defines as a mistake, and the start of a multi-year contract with an outfit that he believes will only get better and better. Sober but not sombre, the Australian tells Adam Cooper about his disappointments at Grove and his expectations from Milton Keynes
On November 28th, Mark Webber will begin a new chapter in his career when he will drive a Ferrari-powered Red Bull car for the first time at Barcelona. It will be a homecoming of sorts, because management aside, there are still a lot of guys in the Milton Keynes team who were there in the days of Jaguar Racing, and there are a few others he knew when he was a Renault test driver in 2001.
Webber left Jaguar at the end of 2004, having decided that Williams was where he wanted to be. It's easy to forget now that at one stage he had a chance of going to Renault, but he had his heart set on Williams. It's fascinating to speculate what might have happened had he - and not Giancarlo Fisichella - spent the last two years alongside Fernando Alonso.
Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights

Having had the door to F1 slammed in his face and come within three laps of winning the Indianapolis 500, the collapse of a Peugeot LMP1 shot meant Japan was Bertrand Baguette's last chance of a career. But it's one which he has grasped with both hands
From Formula 3 to truck racing, Dakar and EuroNASCAR via a winning stint in the DTM, there's not much Ellen Lohr hasn't seen in a stellar racing career that highlights the merit in being a generalist. But she believes her career came too early...
The forthcoming Netflix film linking the world of underworld crime and motorsport plays on a theme that isn't exactly new. Over the years, several shady figures have attempted to make it in racing before their dubious dealings caught up with them
The New Zealand Grand Prix's mix of rising talent and big-name stars thrilled the crowds (yes, remember crowds?) assembled for the Toyota Racing Series meeting at Hampton Downs last weekend and left distant observers craving a repeat
OPINION: The 67th edition of the Macau Grand Prix might have been a largely muted affair to the outside world without its international influx and star line-ups, another victim to the COVID-19 pandemic, but organisers deserve huge credit for keeping the party going
