Also Webber says Kubica deserved title

Oct.21 (GMM) Another formula one driver says Robert Kubica, not either of the remaining contenders, deserves the 2008 championship

The Pole’s title campaign ended mathematically in China, when a weekend of struggling with the balance of his BMW-Sauber meant he could finish just sixth

“He has not been in as good a car as either Felipe or Lewis yet he has produced a season without mistakes,” his former teammate, 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve, said last week

Mark Webber, who drives for Red Bull, also believes 23-year-old Kubica has been the best driver of the season

“He’s probably been, at every single venue, the best and most consistent driver with the least errors,” the Australian, who has been critical of Lewis Hamilton’s driving of late, wrote in his column for the BBC

He added: “But, out of Hamilton and Massa, I’d say Lewis deserves the championship.”nnBut Webber, 31, believes Hamilton’s character is the Briton’s biggest obstacle

“For motor sport enthusiasts in Australia, his abruptness and sureness doesn’t come across brilliantly

“They would probably like to see him a little bit more humble but, on the other side of the coin, Australians like winners as well, and he’s been doing a lot of winning,” Webber said
