Webber Driving Again After Leg Fracture

Webber driving again after leg fracture

Mark Webber returned into the Red Bull Formula One car for tests on Wednesday having recovered 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. 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. Red Bull unveiled their 2009 car on Monday in Jerez. Webber’s new team-mate is promising German Sebastian Vettel who said on Tuesday that he liked the new car.
Team owner Dietrich Mateschitz outlined the aims for the season during a visit to the track on Wednesday.
