Former Formula One driver Mark Webber will return to Britain later this week after crashing in Sao Paulo during the final race of the World Endurance Championship season.

“Mark spent the night in a local hospital in Sao Paulo where he underwent further checks,” a statement on his website said Monday.

“He sustained bruising and concussion in the accident he suffered in Sunday’s six-hour race.”

Was money responsible for Jules Bianchi’s accident?

The Australian was quoted as saying: “I’m quite sore this morning and am pretty bruised and have got a stinking headache.

“I’ve got no recollection of the accident or how it happened – the team is looking into the details to find out more.

“Thanks to the medical team at the track and here at the hospital who did a great job and are looking after me very well.”

On the last lap of the race in Brazil, the 38-year-old Webber’s Porsche crashed into a concrete barrier after a collision with the Ferrari of Matteo Cressoni, who was not seriously hurt.

Webber skidded into the pit lane and the rear of his car caught fire.

He was able to wave to the crowd as he was carried into an ambulance.
