Former F1 driver Mark Webber announces retirement:

Former Formula One driver Mark Webber will retire from professional racing at the end of the world endurance season in Bahrain in November, Porsche said on Thursday.

The six-hour race on November 19 will be the last time the reigning World Champion from Australia will compete as a works driver.

Webber, 40, will become a Porsche ‘special representative’ at global events and work as a consultant on motorsport programs.

The Australian won the World Endurance title with Porsche in 2015 with Germany’s Timo Bernhard and New Zealander Brendon Hartley. He competed in 215 Formula One races for Minardi, Jaguar, Williams and Red Bull before leaving in 2013.
