Webber warning for Force India
Mark Webber has criticised Force India and urged them to wake up and give Paul Di Resta a helping hand on track.
Webber was seen remonstrating with the Scot in the closing stages of the second practice session for Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix.
The 37-year-old Australian appeared to be held up by Di Resta, who also seemingly got in the way of reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel.
That left Webber pointing an accusing finger at the 26-year-old's engineers, urging them to ensure he is kept abreast of all traffic situations.
"The engineers are not talking to Di Resta when he comes out of the pits," said Webber.
"He then cruises on the line and lets you go halfway through the lap. It happened twice with Sebastian (Vettel) and once with me.
"I don't know if it is the team or the engineer not talking to him, but they can do better than that for sure."
Webber finished second on the timesheet to Vettel, just 0.168secs adrift of the German, who could become a four-time champion on Sunday.
In his final year in F1 before quitting the sport and switching to sportscars, Webber remains without a win.
Assessing the weekend, Webber believes there is room for improvement as he said: "We did a lot of laps (in practice) and will now work on the car for Saturday.
"The track is a special one and in terms of difficulty it's right up there, so you have to be very accurate. If you're not, then you get penalised.
"But we have to find performance. It's our job to make improvements each day and we have a job to do to find some more tenths."
