“He would have all the qualities to drive with us”

2013 Australian Grand Prix

The Mark Webber to Porsche rumour has increased in intensity following the fallout from Sebastian Vettel’s controversial victory at the Malaysian Grand Prix. When we first reported on the rumour in the middle of last year we gave our unwavering support to Webber leading the charge for Porsche at Le Mans in 2014.

Only Mark will know if he has the fire in the belly to continue in Formula 1 beyond this season. Not to mention the patience to deal with the highly charged egos in the sport. The door has been left open by Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz, will Mark stay or will he go?

One thing is certain, these comments from Oliver Hilger, Porsche Motorsport Press manager, reported on the official Le Mans website, will only serve to further heighten the expectations that Mark will be leading the Porsche charge for LMP1 success at La Sarthe next year.

“He would have all the qualities to drive with us,” Hilger said.

“He has been in Formula 1 for more than a decade, he has already raced twice at Le Mans with Mercedes. He knows the road that leads to us in Stuttgart.”

We’ll be sure to keep an eye on this story as it will no doubt develop further over the coming months.

One reply on ““He would have all the qualities to drive with us””

That would be pretty awesome. Go win Le Mans in a Porsche. He is a Porsche man isn’t he? Then he could go and cap off his career with by joining Indycar for a season and winning the Indianapolis 500 to become only the second person to achieve the Triple Crown of motor sport.
