Williams has wrong driver. Mark Weber is only good in a few round performance and had never demonstrated his consistance perfomance for the complete race. Given a the best equipment to him, he will perform the same.

Get a grip Klang, plenty of times he's been doing everything right and well on the way to a podium when the car has let him down. Give him a reliable and fast car and his track record indicates he'll be on the podium.

I have no doubt that he's a potential winner. In Monaco, I see no reason why he wouldn't have won had he not retired - and even in Monte Carlo the Williams is far from the pace-setter.

your an idiot to think that when mark webber has only finished a few races. All except one race maybe , he has been either a podium chance or even maybe his first win at monaco when he had car failure. You cant judge him on williams failure to give him a reliable car

webber does good at monaco because he is a damn good driver, its a drivers track with less emphasis on the car. watch out for him next year with adrian newey designing the renault powered red bull car, he could be on for a very good thing.

i kinda agree with ur comments guys about webber being a great driver. i mean yeah he shows talent in races but without a great car and team we will never really know how good he is. Hopefully next year will be different!!!! to me all drivers have potential to win a race all they need is a driver who is confident in themselves who is willing to take chances and opportunities when given and a team that supports their driver in every way.
