We don't much like Mark Webber right now. Part of being a racing driver is dealing with promotional stuff. It's not hard to find a driver that can't stand all this nonsense, whether it be promoting a product, meeting investors or attending some obscure event. Even a driver of Webber's caliber - a former Formula One driver for Red Bull Racing and a member of Porsche's factory Le Mans team - has to serve his time at the promo events.

Somehow, though, we don't think the Aussie driver minds this particular promo detail. In the video below, Webber attends the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. He then takes tennis superstar Maria Sharapova out for a spin behind the wheel of the Porsche 918 Spyder. The level of jealousy at the Autoblog office is palpable.

Take a look below for the video. And as we're super jealous of Mr. Webber, hop into Comments and caption the above photo based on what you think he's saying to Maria. Bonus points if you can work "vegemite" into the caption.

      These type of "ride along" videos usually work better when the passenger is not a multimillionaire who is jaded to driving in fast expensive cars.

      She;s just a dumb blonde broad like the rest of them, and she plays a joke of a "sport". She's not even that attractive. There are SO MANY other women who they could have used in the video, like Gisele, and they chose HER?

        It's a Porsche sponsored tournament, he's a Porsche driver, the car is a Porsche and she's a spokeswoman for Porsche who was playing in that tournament. Seems like it would be extremely odd not to do something with her.

          Don't answer to this guy. He is simply one of the most obvious trolls on this site without any sense for cars or even a mind.

      Didn't work out so well for Paul Walker. If I'm going fast, I'm the one driving.

      Maria - ZAT WAS A BAD IDEA! MEIN VAGINA IS BURNING! Mark - ...and that's why we don't use Vegemite as a personal lubricant.

      Mark: Did you know the 918 is so fast because it runs on vegemite? Maria: Really???
