Excellent concentration. Team spirit. Above average stamina. And nerves of steel. Qualities, that distinguish our Le Mans winner and FIA WEC World Champion, Mark Webber, right from the start – of every race. Just as in the current 2016 season, in which he delivered an outstanding performance, together with his team colleagues, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard. At the end of his career in the 919 Hybrid, Mark Webber explains what makes long-distance races, such as Le Mans, so challenging: what's important when driving at night, how to correctly operate the steering wheel of a 919 Hybrid and how an LMP1 driver avoids dehydration.
Circuit de la Sarthe, also known as Le Mans, is one of the world's oldest and most historic race tracks. Mark Webber guides you around the legendary circuit, explaining what's required on the individual sections.
Anyone who's competed at the 24h of Le Mans knows that the night stages are something very special. Mark Webber describes what it feels like to compete in the darkness at an average of 250 km/h.
The operation of a 919 Hybrid is as complex as the car itself. Anyone who drives a hybrid-powered LMP1 vehicle must be able to multitask. There are 24 controls on the steering wheel of the 919 Hybrid alone. All relevant for racing. Mark Webber explains the most important of them.
Imagine you're wearing fireproof underwear, a racing suit, gloves, a balaclava and a tight helmet, all while delivering maximum sporting performance for hours on end with outside temperatures of up to 40 degrees. Mark Webber demonstrates how our works drivers manage to avoid dehydration.
