Webber in hot water over Pizzonia outburst
Monday December 06 2004
Mark Webber's recent tirade about Antonio Pizzonia hasn't gone down very well with his new Williams team bosses, who reportedly sent their lawyers over to have a word with the Aussie.
Earlier this week Webber lashed out at Pizzonia, accusing him of "lying" about the way he was treated by the Jaguar Racing team during their time together at the Big Cat in 2003. Pizzonia alleges that the team favoured his team-mate and would often give Webber the better equipment.
The Aussie, though, denied that this was "not true", adding that if Pizzonia did "believe that, he's a loser."
And as expected his comments have not gone down well with the Williams team bosses, especially as the two feuding drivers could be team-mates in 2005.
According to Speed TV, barely hours after Webber's tirade, which was part of an interview he did with Gazzetta dello Sport, hit the newsstands Williams' juridical department paid him a visit. And the Grove team's lawyers made it clear that as long as he was a Williams driver, the 28-year-old would be allowed to just say whatever comes to mind.
However, it didn't stop there, as Webber then had to appear before his Williams team bosses, who verbally reprimanded him for his behaviour. He was also warned not to repeat his outburst.
Not exactly the best way to start his Williams career...
