See the crash on You Tube: “Mark Webber Crash – Red Bull Racing – Formula One Valencia European Grand Prix 2010”, 27.6.10., (28.6.10).

Overtaking cars in the race at Valencia, in Spain, he ran into the back of Heikki Kovalainen (Finland, in a Lotus), Webber’s car becoming airborn as it somersaulted into the barriers.

“He was blocking pretty aggressively”, said Mark Webber

His Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel (Germany) won the race, followed by the British Mclaren team, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button – those two drivers now, in that order, leading in the F1 championship series.
