In the high-stakes world of Formula 1, only the fastest make it to the top. Few know this better than Australian motor-racing legend Mark Webber. His incredible 12-year career saw him earn 42 podium finishes and triumph in nine races, including twice winning the crown jewel of F1, the Monaco Grand Prix.
But the road to the summit of F1 racing is long and full of twists and turns. In his long-awaited autobiography, Webber takes us on a thrill ride through the highs and lows of his amazing career, detailing the personal struggles that drove him, revealing the truth at last behind his rivalry with Red Bull Racing teammate Sebastien Vettel, and allowing us into a private life played out on a very public stage.
Filled with anecdotes about the great drivers, epic races and big characters of Formula 1, Aussie Grit is a fascinating account of life in the cockpit of an F1 rocket and the inspiring, no-punches-pulled story of a great Australian.
