Australian Mark Webber has taken a slight dig at his Jaguar team following their lack of support for his team-mate, Antonio Pizzonia.

Webber, who ironically signed a new deal with 'The Cat' last week that will see him stay at the Milton Keynes based concern until the end of 2005, told Reuters that Pizzonia should have been given more help.

Pizzonia, has had a dismal start to his debut F1 campaign, and just two weeks ago at the Spanish GP, it appeared he would be replaced by McLaren test driver, Alexander Wurz, however a few days following the Barcelona event, Jaguar seemingly performed a U-turn, announcing that Pizzonia would actually be staying with the outfit until the end of the year and that the matter had all been "a storm in a tea-cup."

Webber told Reuters: "It [Pizzonia's lack of performance] has been a little bit of a burden on the team if you like.

"You don't like to have atmosphere within your own camp and we had a bit of an atmosphere there which was not a healthy thing.

"But now we're out the other side of that and I feel there will be no other scenarios throughout the year which will cause any problems off the track.

"It gets a bit frustrating. It would be the same for me if Antonio was third or fourth on the grid and I was 12th or 13th. I'd be looking at myself as well," added the former Minardi driver, sympathetically.

He continued: "They're really very fragile cars to get right so he is still learning that and he isn't too far away from where he can get the most out of himself and the car."
