F1 Nation: Mark Webber joins the pod team to talk Turkey, the title race, and former rivals Vettel and Alonso
Former Formula 1 driver Mark Webber joins hosts Tom Clarkson and Natalie Pinkham for a deep dive into Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix in this week's episode of our F1 Nation podcast.
Webber won nine Grands Prix with Red Bull during his F1 career, but he thinks his old team will have to pull out all the stops if Max Verstappen is to beat Lewis Hamilton to this year’s World Championship.

The Australian tackles the big questions from the race: why did Hamilton stay out so long on his worn tyres? Have Ferrari hit back against McLaren? What was Mark’s former teammate Sebastian Vettel thinking when he gambled on slicks? And how does the Fernando Alonso of 2021 compare to the driver Webber went wheel-to-wheel with?
Plus Mark puts his ‘driver representative’ hat on to reveal how he’s trying to help Formula 2 championship leader Oscar Piastri make the jump to F1.
