Webber gets maiden win

Mark Webber got his maiden F1 win after winning the German Grand Prix having started from pole position.

That pole position was also Webber's maiden pole position and so it was a great weekend for him.

Once Webber got the pole position I thought that this was his best chance to win a race but it wasn't plain sailing race especially in the early stages of the race where he got a drive through penalty.

Webber was so brilliant on the day that even a drive through penalty could not prevent him from winning the race and I hope that this is the start of many wins for Webber.

It was also a one-two for Red Bull as Sebastian Vettel snatched second place and in third was Ferrari's Felipe who got his first podium finish for the year.

Talking about the podium, this was the first race this year that there was no Brawn driver on the podium as Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello finished fifth and sixth respectively.

Williams Nico Rosberg finished in fourth. This was a very good result for Rosberg as he started the race fifteenth on the grid.

The last two points places went to former world champion Renault's Fernando Alonso and McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen.

Button's lead at the top has now been reduced to just 21 points and if the Red Bull can continue with another one two then it will be reduced further.

The next race in a fortnight will be the Hungarian Grand Prix.
