Mark Webber shares his thoughts ahead of the Australian Grand Prix.
"As an Australian I'm looking forward to Melbourne being the first race. We've done a huge amount of testing and a lot of work has gone into the cards - now we'll put them through their paces at Albert Park and lots of questions will be answered. Its going to be an eventful weekend, especially as the weather can be a bit hit and miss. We'll learn a lot about the tyres which will play a huge role. I hope I can improve my luck there as it hasn't been incredible since my first GP in '02. I hope to get my best result aand there's every indication we can do that. This is the best winter we've had - lets hope we can carry it on into the first event"
phatjack Not sure what Mark found so memorial about '02.
you are saying a HRT finishing 5th this weekend would not be a great result for that team and the driver of the team who achived that, from memory the minardi had not rolled a wheel in testing either in that year!! Pretty damn impressive if you ask me, or should we wait and see where HRT finish this weekend to finish this debate?
