Mark Webber will shortly return to Europe, less than a month after badly breaking his right leg in a cycling crash.

The 32-year-old Australian is currently recuperating in Melbourne, after having surgery in a Tasmanian hospital following the accident on the island state.

Webber, who drives for Red Bull, had staples removed from the injury last Wednesday, and was told by doctors he can return home to Buckinghamshire (UK) as soon as the swelling reduces and the wound heals.

Red Bull Racing confirmed that, once out of Australia, Webber's rehabilitation and physiotherapy will begin in earnest.

He has targeted returning to the cockpit at the beginning of February, when the Milton-Keynes based team's 2009 car will be up and running.
