Network Ten’s Formula One host Greg Rust says that this weekend is Mark Webber’s best chance of victory at his home Grand Prix.

Rust, who will be joined by Leigh Diffey in Network Ten/ONE HD’s mammoth coverage of the meeting, says that Australia’s Red Bull racer may never get a better opportunity to win on home soil.

“I think the Red Bulls are going to be very, very strong, and I’m so hopeful for Mark,” he told

“I’m hopeful for him that it’s not his last chance, but I absolutely believe that it’s his best chance.

“He’s only got this one year deal with Red Bull. I hope Mark has a ripper year, and they’ve already made noise in there that if he does have a great year, there’s no reason they wouldn’t keep him.”
