Webber 'on target' after leg surgery

Red Bull driver Mark Webber took his turn in the new RB9 testing at Jerez despite surgery after he sustained a broken leg while cycling.

Feb.12 (GMM) Mark Webber insists surgery over the winter period will not affect the start of his 2013 championship campaign.

A few years ago, the Red Bull driver badly broke his leg in a mountain cycling crash, and since then he has raced with a 38 centimetre titanium rod on board.

The rod was removed over the winter period.

"The leg's no problem at all," Webber, 36, told reporters last week at Jerez.

"I'm probably a little bit behind on condition but not much. I'll be ready to go for Melbourne, I'm clearly on target so that's all fine.

"At one point it was a little bit stiff but it's normal. It will be fine. When the adrenalin's going, it's zero problems," he insisted.
