Mark Webber 'pretty bruised' after crash

Mark Webber remains under observation in a
Brazilian hospital following his horrific accident in
last weekend's WEC race in Sao Paulo.
The former Formula One and current Porsche WEC
driver was involved in a huge accident just half an
hour from the end of the race, when his LMP1 919
Hybrid slammed into the barriers with sickening
force at high speed, following a collision with the
Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni.
Porsche confirmed this morning that Webber is
still in hospital, and will return to the UK later this
week. Webber himself said: "I'm quite sore this
morning, am pretty bruised and have got a
stinking headache. I've got no recollection of the
accident or how it happened." Don't worry, Mark.
We've all woken up from nights feeling like that.
"On a positive note," Webber added, "it's great that
the boys in the number 14 car managed to bring
home the victory, which is a fantastic way to finish
off the season. I'm already looking forward to
getting out there again next year."
Jenson Button tweeted: "Glad to see @AussieGrit
is OK after his shunt at Interlagos @FIAWEC, that
was a big one matey."
From all of us here at Motoring Nigeria, get well soon fella.
