“Mark Webber is an Australian sporting champion
and we look forward to working with and supporting Mark, not only

“Qantas is such an iconic Australian brand. As a
sportsperson, I love representing my country on the world stage
and being a Qantas Ambassador means I can represent Qantas

to be racing in front of my home crowd again and the driver parade
lap is when it really hits home that all the Aussie fans are there
cheering you on.”
