Mark Webber will reprise his appearance on Top Gear when it goes to air this weekend, seeking to unseat Lewis Hamilton from top spot on the show’s Formula 1 Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car segment.

The Australian veteran last appeared on the show way back in 2005 when he was a driver for Williams, guiding the Suzuki Liana around the show’s test track with a time of 1:47.1 in soaking conditions.

Hamilton was the last F1 driver to have a crack at the leaderboard, managing to eclipse Sebastian Vettel’s previous record by a full 1.1 seconds when he appeared on the show earlier this year.

The current F1 driver leaderboard is as follows:
