Webber: It's clear I'm not part of Marko agenda

“Look, everyone at this level has their own agendas and it's been evident for a long time now that I've never been a part of Marko's,” he said.

On a more personal note, Webber should be back to full fitness before the first wheel is turned in anger at Jerez, having had the final piece of metalwork removed from the leg he broke on an earlier edition of the Pure Tasmania Challenge he lends his name to.

“I had the final procedure on my right leg at the start of December to remove a 40cm titanium rod,” he confirmed, “The surgery went very smoothly and my recovery was exceptional. I had a few weeks off from my normal training schedule, but I was able to ease myself back into it by the first week of January and now I'm back into it properly.

“I didn't really know what to expect from having it removed, apart from my own peace of mind, but I'm very happy that some of the niggles and pain I've sometimes experienced with my training over the past three years already seem to be a thing of the past.”
