Webber pledges F1 comeback
Mark Webber says that he will beback in actiuon next year, after suffering a broken leg while riding a bike in a charity event in Tasmania. The 32-year-old Red Bull Racing driver collided head-on with a car during the annual Mark Webber Challenge and suffered fractures of the two bones in his lower right leg. He was flown to the Royal Hobart Hospital where he underwent surgery to have the bones re-set. He is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days. The injury will almost certainly disrupt his winter testing programme but Webber is hoping to be in action before the start of the new season at the end of March.
