Mark Webber, the always plain-speaking former F1 driver, has named his 'best and worst' on today's F1 grid.

When it comes to the best, the popular Australian and now reigning world endurance champion narrowed down the field to a talented trio, including his old friend Fernando Alonso.

Webber said: "Fernando, I wouldn't say he's running out of puff, but his motivation I think at the moment is challenged for sure."

'Hamilton incredibly fast'

He explained that his former Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel is a very good driver overall, while Lewis Hamilton is "incredibly fast".

Webber told Australia's Wheels magazine: "If I had to pick one, I'd probably pick Sebastian, in terms of pulling the whole juggernaut together and getting the whole team going, which I think he will do at Ferrari shortly.

"He's notoriously consistent and unfortunately I was on the receiving end of a lot of that, but he's pretty handy.  Lewis has a little bit more of that mind-management challenge, whereas Sebastian is true to form in the Germanic fashion," he added.

As for the worst driver in F1, Webber answered: "Probably (Pastor) Maldonado. He's out of his depth and just shouldn't be there.  He's making up the numbers basically."
