Crash.net Top Ten F1 2009 Drivers: Number 3

Aussie Mark Webber is voted third in your poll to find the top driver from the 2009 F1 season.
Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber finally broke his winners duck in F1 2009 after triumphing in Germany and Brazil.

Webber was a title contender too - and all this despite his pre-season preparations being severely hampered after he sustained a broken leg and fractured shoulder whilst competing in his own charity event in Tasmania.

Webber was soon up to speed however, and scored his first points finish of the year in Malaysia, the second round in the championship.

He then followed that up with a runners-up spot next time out in Bahrain - one of eight rostrum results he would notch up during the course of the year.

In the end he finished the season, his eighth at the top level, fourth in the drivers' championship, having scored 69.5 points, 14.5 less than his team-mate and eventual vice champion, Sebastian Vettel.

It was his best year to date in F1 and his performance earned him third spot in your poll for the top driver of the 2009 season.

Well I think that Mark did amazingly well this season so :p last December noone was sure if he'd even be ready to drive come testing let alone convincingly put up a fight against Vettel, win TWO races AND fight for WDC. Not only that but he had several operations during the season and did not make a fuss about it ONCE, just carried on like nothing was wrong even when he was, at the beginning of the season, still hobbling significantly. Plus, he gave THE single most emotional and excited reaction to a race win of the season by far! It's also so refreshing to have such an honest 'says what he thinks' guy in F1-'yea first of all tell him to put his glasses on and look outside' LOL!!! :D:D

Mark drove brilliantly all year, and raced incredibly hard, and thats what makes him good. all these people crying about how he touched people on the track, so what? thats what happens, and these hard racers, who actually overtake people should be Applauded. I bet these same people had no problems when Lewis ran glock of the road at Monza last year. or Massa and Alonso touched at The ring in 07.
