Webber has helped Jaguar to their best-ever season
Australian Formula One driver Mark Webber has been labelled a potential world champion by his Jaguar boss.

Webber has regularly qualified in the top 10, and his 17 points have made this Jaguar's best-ever F1 season.

Tony Purnell, chief executive of Ford's Premier Performance Division, which runs Jaguar, said he was bowled over by Webber's displays this year.

"I see him in the Michael Schumacher league. Michael delivers on demand and I see the same in Mark," he said.

"At the start of the season I myself thought 'he's not quite top-flight yet but I like the way he approaches his job, let's see how he goes in testing'.

"Now I think, 'blimey this bloke is good'."
