Rising Australia F1 star Mark Webber joined Arnold Schwarzenegger at the premiere of Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines in spectacular fashion yesterday, driving his Jaguar F1 car through Leicester Square in front of 8,000 fans. "There wasn't the space to go too fast but I couldn't resist spinning the wheels and giving the crowds something to really cheer about". said Webber.

Fresh from Sunday's British Grand Prix, the T3-liveried F1 car used to promote the film is the first Formula One car ever driven through the streets of London.

"It was an exhilarating experience and very different to anything I have done on the race track" Mark Webber said, "The crowds were simply unbelievable and the noise they were making was almost louder than what the Jaguar F1 car was generating! I drove the car from one end of Leicester Square to the other and parked it up next to the red carpet where the stars and celebrities were making their entrance."

In keeping with the Jaguar theme, Arnie arrived at the premiere in a black Jaguar XJ saloon while his nemesis in the movie played by Kristanna Loken arrived in a unique polished aluminium XJ - the only one of it's kind in the world.
