After nine seasons in Formula One, the Australian Mark Webber is emerging among the big favorites in the Sportsbook to win the 2010 Championship with Red Bull Racing F1 Team.

The Formula One's world championship leader, Webber, has said that if he wins the title this season or next year, he could quit this sport after the end of his contract with Red Bull, which ends after the 2011 championship. "I cannot guarantee that my head will be in the same place in 2012. I want to win the title and I know that it changes people's lives and I want to know what it feels like," said the F1 driver.

Webber has achieved four victories, six podiums, and four poles to guarantee 161 points up until now. Also, he is considered as the big revelation of the year.

In addition, the 33 year- old Australian driver believes that "life is more than Formula One," and said he would like to be a mentor to young people.

Webber made his debut in Formula One in 2002 and was part of teams such as Minardi, Jaguar, Williams and Red Bull.

He has entered into 158 Grand Prix, with six wins in the F1 World championship careers and got his first F1 win at the 2009 German Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver turns 34 next Friday, August 27th, a factor which may help understand his possible decision. The Australian F1 driver doesn't know what other activities he could be engaged in, however, he said that would like to do some mountain climbing and sports challenges before he gets too old.

Finally, if Webber wins the title, it may be his final season and the end of his career at the pinnacle of motorsport.
