Mark Webber's father says the Red Bull driver will set aside differences with teammate Sebastian Vettel and race at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Alan Webber on Tuesday told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio "We'll up in China for the next one." But he added: "I think it will take a while (for Vettel) to earn the respect and trust again."

Three-time defending champion Vettel ignored team orders and overtook Webber for victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend, leaving the Australian driver fuming.

Webber refused to acknowledge his teammate immediately after the race, and later hinted that he would have to consider his future before returning to Australia to recharge.

The Chinese GP is scheduled for April 14.
