Webber back on track

from a broken leg sustained less than three months ago. “I am very relieved,” the Australian said after a morning session of 48 laps in Jerez de la Frontera. He finished the day with the second fastest time of the 2009 cars. Webber broke his right leg last November 22 when he collided with a car while riding a bike in his own charity event in Tasmania. He is ahead of schedule in the healing process but still requires light painkillers. “I will be 100 per cent fit for the start of the season on March 29 in Melbourne,” he said.
Team owner Dietrich Mateschitz outlined the aims for the season during a visit to the track: “We want to be ahead in midfield and get close to the two or three top teams. Anything worse than fourth or fifth place does not meet the aims of Red Bull racing.”
