Webber ended his long wait in 2009.
In putting together this list, greater emphasis was placed on the circumstances in which the maiden triumph was taken, not on what that driver went on to achieve.
That also means that the value of a win to the driver/team/fans and how long it might have been in the making is part of the selection criteria.
Here are a few other maiden wins which came close to deservedly slipping into the list.
Mika Hakkinen, Europe 1997: Ultimately not a stirring drive to victory at Jerez, as Jacques Villeneuve nursed his ailing Williams home and McLaren teammate David Coulthard moved aside. But the Finn had many near-misses, had waited 96 races and was a hugely popular character, so this one meant a lot.
Elio de Angelis, Austria 1982: Wins a remarkable race of attrition from seventh on the grid on the 54th attempt by just 0.050s from eventual champion Keke Rosberg.
Nigel Mansell, Europe 1985: Another driver who had waited much longer than expected to step on top of the podium, Nigel Mansell eventually triumphed on his 72nd Grand Prix start. It was a home win at Brands Hatch, so it meant even more.
Dan Gurney, France 1962: Laps the entire field en route to a maiden Grand Prix win after starting sixth on the grid, the first of four for the American.
Denny Hulme, Monaco 1967: A race of attrition allows Hulme, the eventual '67 champion, to capitalise. Only six cars finish, with Hulme a lap clear of Graham Hill and two laps ahead of third-placed Chris Amon.
Jochen Rindt, United States 1969: It's fair to say Jochen Rindt was an unfortunate man, having retired in 33 races from his first 50 starts, twice while leading. He finally claimed victory in the 1969 United States Grand Prix, in which he also claimed pole and the fastest lap.
Mark Webber, Germany 2009: Ends a seven-year wait for his first win with a determined drive to victory which included overcoming a drive-through penalty. It was typical of the Australian to have to face back luck, even when he finally won, but the success proved very popular and very emotional.
Vittorio Brambilla, Austria 1975: The March driver lined up eighth for the 1975 Austrian Grand Prix but proved the class of the field in torrid conditions as he flew through the lead drivers to win comfortably. However, he dealt with the slowing-down lap a bit worse, throwing his car off while celebrating.
