Mark Webber Relishing Renault Challenge
Australian F1 driver Mark Webber swapped his Formula One car for the latest sporty Renault ahead of this weekend’s opening Grand Prix of the 2013 season in Melbourne, Australia.
Webber took a spin in the new Clio RS , a car that benefits from the F1 engineers extensive expertise. The promotional session provided the Australian driver with a welcome break from the intense F1 circuit, something he clearly enjoyed.
Having found time to head down to Melbourne’s Sandown Raceway to put Renault’s all-new Clio RS 200 through its paces, Webber put the pedal to the metal and thrashed the hatchback around the circuit.
“Yeah it was actually good to go out there and jump a few curbs and get a feel for how the car was on the circuit here and yeah, obviously, tomorrow I will be in the real thing in the car and it is nice the sun is out so looking forward to getting into the race.”
The 9 time race winner thinks his team are in a good position to win this weekend’s opening Grand Prix in Australia.
