2009 GERMAN GP: WEBBER MEN OF THE DAY, RED BULL 1-2


Mark Webber finally take his first Formula 1 victory as Red Bull Racing scored its third one-two of the season at the Nurburgring, but this time with Webber ahead of Sebastian Vettel at last.

"Mark Webber, you are a Grand Prix winner. Well done! Brilliant drive!" - Webber's engineer wowed. No matter what they threw at the Australian, including a drive-through penalty for a contact at the startline with Rubens Barrichello, Webber came through and delivered in devastating style.


The Brawns could not compete with the Red Bulls and fell back to fifth and sixth - Jenson Button ahead of Rubens Barrichello - behind Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg when their three stop strategies unfolded.
