    Overnight Radio Le Mans announced that Mark Webber had put pen to paper making the deal official, meaning he would join Porsche in their assault on the World Endurance Championship.

    Webber is expected to quit F1 at the end of the season, when his contract with Red Bull expires.

    Rumours of a move to Porsche have been simmering for some time, and the car giant last week did not deny an interest in hiring Webber for their new Le Mans sportscar program.

    I hope Webber has a fun time racing with Porsche. F1 has become a major joke since Schumi left the first time.

    I was thinking more likely Simona De Silvestro.

    If some day we have a woman on F1 would be interesting to see how her Team-mate would deal with the situation, mainly if she could beat him.

    With such a teammate Seb needs to be really careful with that finger. (I didn't say that, cheap joke)

    On-topic. Webber has plenty of sportscar experience from his pre-F1 era. Not sure if he is still going to enjoy Le Mans after his horrific crash with the Mercedes in 99

    Not bad for a no.2 driver!

    Mark was practicing his new way of celebrating a race win. He'll do it again after he wins his next race in F1. The Red Bull mechanics will need to make sure that he just has the right amount of downforce on his car.

    Mark is also hinting that the next step in his career may take him into Moto GP.
