It's obviously not the car, it may be the wrong set up, but the car itself is obviously got the potential to be up there with the right driver and set up - this was proven by Webber qualifiying 2nd. If his car wasn't nearly as good as the others then he wouldn't be beating them in qualifying. The problem is he's not managing to get the results in the races which go longer. But he's still having a better season than last, so there is some improvement.

I would assume all the experts bagging Webber have been on the podium in F1.
I would have thought it would be hard to judge sombody when you know nothing about what realy going on.

what I do like about this season is the drivers points table, who is going to win the world championship - know one knows. But I think they have got there for all the wrong reasons.

I remember Webber saying in an interview before the season had even started that he wasnt expecting good results until the 2nd half of the season. So I'll wait and see for a while before making judgement. F1 aint easy , I remember when Michael Andretti came over from Indy cars as an absolute champion but couldnt cut it in F1 so he went back to Indy.

If his cars so s**t how'd he manage to qualify second? I'm sorry, but the car might not be the best, but neither is his driving in the races.

Cuz BMW Wiliams have said they set it up for qualifying, and not really for races.

you really have no idea what you are talking about - think about, all the money people have riding on F1, the number of people waiting to have a drivers seat - you think they would pick Mark if they didn't think he can go the distant. He's has proved his abilities, leave him alone until his car stops causing troubles - then bag him if he still doesn't perform!
