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 TG, get well soon fella.
