Webber to return to F1

The father of the Australian Formula One driver Mark Webber says his son will take part in the next race in China, despite speculation Webber would quit his Red Bull team.

Webber was beaten into second place by his team mate Sebastian Vettel at last week's Malaysian Grand Prix, defying team orders to let Webber win the race.

Alan Webber says while his son's relationship with the three time world champion Vettel will take time to repair, Mark has the support of his team.

Alan says Mark has received the backing of team bosses and that most of the Red Bull team are disappointed with Vettel.
