Australian Formula 1 driver Mark Webber has become the first Australian sportsman to be immortalised in the Madame Tussauds Sydney museum.

Webber’s wax figure will feature in Sydney museum, displayed in the sports section.

The Red Bull driver says he is amazed at the replication of himself.

“When Madame Tussauds approached me about including me in their Sydney collection, I was rapt,” Webber said.

“It was fun working with the team in London to make a second version of myself, particularly my varying five o’clock shadow.

“I think it’s an incredible and accurate representation and I’m still amazed at how perfectly they matched everything, particularly my eyes, which is spooky.”

Following on from his fourth place finish at the Australian Grand Prix, Webber and the rest of the F1 field return to the track in Malaysia this weekend.
