Mark Webber – Wins DHL Fastest Lap Award

My Drive: We would like to congratulate Mark Webber for not only winning the last Grand Prix of the Year at Interlagos but for also winning the DHL Fastest Lap Award. Red Bull Racing team adds the Fastest Lap Award to Sebastian Vettel’s 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship for Drivers’ and the FIA Formula One World Championship for Constructors’. Mark Webber won the award with one race of the season still remaining, at the 2011 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. His best time of 1:42.612, set with just 4 laps remaining in the race, allowed him to establish an unassailable lead (six fastest laps to three) over Abu Dhabi Grand Prix winner Lewis Hamilton and his own Red Bull Racing teammate, 2011 FIA Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel. This is the first time that Webber has won the award, having finished runner-up in 2009. At a special hand over ceremony in Sao Paolo on the eve of the Brizillian Grand Prix, Mark Webber was presented with the award by Joakim Thrane, Country Manager, DHL Express Brazil, and TV presenter and former Formula 1 driver Christian Danner. Not a bad year at all. Bring on 2012.
