If you follow F1 racing you will know the name, Mark Webber. He is a former F1 driver and currently is an ambassador for Porsche. The Grand Tour is the new show for former Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May and it had an American driver who is no longer on the show for season one.
The show is on the hunt for a new driver and Webber got a test. He went around the track quickly when driving a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Later behind the wheel of an Mercedes-AMG GT R, he went very slowly.
When asked why so slow, he stated that was all the Mercedes had. Webber once flipped a Mercedes CLR racing car practicing for a race. Who knows if Webber will be on the show or not, but the video is worth a watch.
