Raul Mariano Werner ( 30 of December of 1988 , City of Parana , Entre Rios , Argentina ) is a pilot Argentine of road racing national career. [ 1 ] He is the brother of the late pilot Gabriel Werner . [ 2 ]
Born in the capital of Entre Ríos, Mariano Werner was the fifth of six siblings and the youngest of the two boys in the family. As a child he tried to emulate his older brother Gabriel, getting to compete in karting, where he made his debut in 1996 , the same date on which Gabriel would specify his most regular season in South American Formula 3 , reaching nothing more and nothing less than the runner-up of the Class B. In his debut year, Mariano Werner became champion of the Río Paraná School Category. After this award, he began to climb the ladder in the world of kart, obtaining titles in the years 1998 , 1999 and 2000 . His rise would have a dizzying advance, until reaching his debut in 2005in Formula Renault Argentina .
In 2005 , Mariano Werner would make his debut in Formula Renault Argentina Accompanied by his father José, within the Werner Competición family team, Mariano would begin his path within Argentine motorsports and in his debut year he would astonish taking 2 victories, 3 podiums and 4 poles position. Such numbers would finish him by finishing in fourth place with 101 points, being the best rookie in that year. After his debut, Werner would begin to establish himself race by race within Formula Renault, always running under the wing of his father José. In 2006 and at the command of his unit Crespi, Mariano would achieve his first great achievement in motorsports by establishing himself for the first time as Argentine Formula Renault Champion, reaching a harvest of 7 victories, 7 podiums and 8 pole positions, which placed him in front of the positions with 175 units and establishing an unattainable advantage of 49 points, compared to his guard that year Néstor Girolami . However, even with this championship it was appropriate that the following year he promoted to TC 2000 , but the lack of space in the teams of that category forced him to continue one more year in Formula.
In 2007 and with all the seats in his father's team occupied, Mariano decided to take a very important step in his sporting career, by teaming up with his older brother Gabriel Werner to create his own competition squad, alongside the family team. In this way, the Werner Juniors Competition would be born, a team where Mariano would have the luxury of painting the "1" in the school category (a fact that had not happened since 1991 , when his compatriot and future team leader in the TC, Omar Martinezto do so, consecrating himself that year two-time champion of the category) and where Gabriel would take his first steps as Sports Director, independent from his father José. That year the team would be armed with three units, with Mariano at the head, seconded by Matías Muñoz Marchesi and Facundo Ardusso . Unfortunately, fatality would cross the path of the new team, when on November 23, 2007 and during the development of a Formula Renault Interprovincial competition (where the Werner Competition also took sides), Gabriel Werner would find death in a tragic way , when a tire from one of its units exploded in his face, when he was carrying out maneuvers on it, inside the truck supplying these elements. 
Gabriel's death had a deep impact on the Werner family, who, in tribute to their son, decided to take over the Werner Juniors team and continue the work started by the older of the two brothers. [ 4 ] That year, Mariano Werner would revalidate his Formula Renault title, harvesting 236 units and beating Guido Falaschi by the hefty difference of 104 units, one of the highest in the history of the category. Likewise, that year he would obtain a total of 9 annual victories, which made him the most winning driver within a season, in the history of the FR, beating Gabriel Ponce de León by a single achievement , who won 8 races in 1997.. In this way, the young man from Entre Ríos would emulate the consecrated Omar Martínez , two-time Formula Renault champion in the 1990 - 1991 biennium and who, in addition to being his native, would later be his team leader within Road Tourism .
To all this, with the double championship of FR in his pocket, finally that same year his delayed debut would take place within TC 2000 , when he was summoned to replace the former South American Formula 3 champion , Gabriel Furlán , for the last four commitments of the year . After his promotion to TC 2000, his family decided to unify the Werner and Werner Juniors teams, to merge them into one and under the name Gabriel Werner Competition, in tribute to his late brother.
With the creation of the Super TC 2000 division , he started to compete in this division , making his debut in 2012, always with Toyota and in 2014 becoming an official driver of the Fiat Petronas Team . He was runner-up in 2012, third in 2010, fifth in 2012 and 2016, and sixth in 2013 and 2014, while also winning the 2010 Endurance Series Cup .
He also stands out for his participation in Road Tourism , a category he reached after entering the TC Pista , aboard a Ford Falcon in 2003. He was runner-up in 2013, third in 2010 and 2016, and ninth in 2014. In 2010, he was on the verge of obtaining another award for his record, having lost the Road Tourism Championship , after a vibrant hand-to-hand duel with Agustín Canapino. Both drivers reached the last date without having won a final race, which is a fundamental requirement to be proclaimed champion. This requirement played against Werner, since although he added more points than Canapino, the lack of a victory and the subsequent victory of the reef driver, caused the second case of Regulatory Default in the history of the TC.
His family is linked to motorsports, since his father José Werner owns the Werner Competition team , with which he obtained his first title, and his older brother, the late ex-driver Gabriel Werner , founded a parallel team with which Mariano obtained the second title. However, not all of them were good in Mariano's career, since his brother Gabriel (former South American Formula 3 driver ) died on November 23, 2007, due to a tragic accident while executing mechanical maneuvers, attending to the cars of his team . The driver collaborated with his family in the care of his Formula Renault team , which that year had the official support of Plan Rombo, also achieving the drivers' championship, hand in hand with Nicolás Trosset .

- He was the first Formula Renault Argentina driver to be champion with two different chassis, homologated for this category: In 2006 he became champion driving a unit with Tulia XXV chassis by Tulio Crespi , while in 2007 , after the change of official supplier, he was champion with a Tito 02 chassis by Héctor Pérez. The first title was won by the team of his father José Werner, while the second was achieved by the team of his older brother Gabriel Werner.
- In 2010 , he starred with Agustín Canapino in the first case of Regulatory Default to define a champion in the history of Road Tourism . The event took place at the Oscar and Juan Gálvez Autodrome in the City of Buenos Aires on the last date of the 2010 calendar. Both drivers needed to win imperiously, since the regulations stipulate that to be crowned champion it is mandatory to have obtained at least one victory. Finally, the fortune fell into the hands of Canapino, who was proclaimed champion despite having obtained a lower score than Werner.
- In 2016 , on the last date of the championship at the Autodromo Roberto Mouras in the last corner he was the protagonist of a maneuver together with Matías Rossi in which the latter was harmed and deprived him of the champion title, which would ultimately be for Guillermo Ortelli . The CAF (Comicsón Asesora y Fiscalizadora de la ACTC ) found Mariano Werner guilty of the maneuver and applied a 1-year suspension and a fine of $ 750,000. This sanction was reduced, after an appeal by Mariano Werner, to 6 suspension competitions for the year 2017 and a fine of $ 500,000.
- Disabled to score points for being invited in the 200 Kilometers and for joining in the last 3 dates.
