Nico Rosberg is heading to Ibiza, while championship leader Jenson Button will spend some of F1’s rare three-week break before the next race holidaying with his girlfriend in Tokyo.
Australia’s Mark Webber, however, is taking the opportunity to have some surgery, following his winter cycling accident.
“I’m having the two locking screws at the bottom of my right shin taken out,” the Red Bull driver said after finishing second in Sunday’s British Grand Prix.
Webber, 32, said the main titanium rod is staying put.
“The bone has recovered sufficiently for the screws to be removed, which is great news.
It’s not a big operation, just a local anaesthetic,” he explained.
Afterwards, however, he has scheduled some rest and relaxation prior to the German Grand Prix in mid July, starting with taking in the British Speedway action in Cardiff next Saturday.
The next day, he will be trackside at Donington Park for the British round of World Superbikes.
“I’ve ridden bikes for longer than I’ve raced cars, so I’m really looking forward to it,” said Webber

Catherine Hyde and Heikki Kovalainen: Heikki dates an English girl called Catherine Hyde. She likes reading books, so much that often she is doing that at Grands Prix as well. I don’t know how long they are together but at least since 2006 as there are already photos of the two from that time when Heikki was Renault’s test driver and racing in F3000.
Ann Neal and Mark Webber: Ann is Mark’s manager – and girlfriend. She is about ten years older than Mark and has a teenage son from another relationship. Mark once was asked to congratulate Kimi Räikkönen for his marriage, but Mark outed himself as anti-marriage.
Hanna Prater and Sebastian Vettel: Hanna and Sebastian met at the secondary school they both visited in Heppenheim (Sebastian’s home town). They absolved their matura together. Much more is not known publically about Hanna. She only attended one race so far.
Isabell and Timo Glock: They are together since last summer. She is a modell and Timo is seemingly very proud of her.
