Appropriately enough for the United States, Webber has delivered what could be termed a 'state of the union address' on the health of F1 at a time when he is on the brink of saying goodbye.
The 37-year-old Australian has spent the last 12 years in the sport and has naturally seen a number of changes throughout that time.
What concerns Webber the most is the seemingly parlous state of some teams who are struggling to pay their employees.
Case in point of late has been the Kimi Raikkonen situation, with the Finn not paid a penny this season of his £10million per year salary, a situation where Webber feels supremo Bernie Ecclestone would have stepped in.
Sauber's Nico Hulkenberg is another who has also found wages hard to come by, whilst Webber is angered by drivers able to pick and choose which team they want to drive for based on how much money they have behind them.
"It's different to when I arrived, no question about that," said Webber.
"In 2002 the depth (of driver talent) was super strong, pretty much everyone on the grid had been on the podium.
"The level now is probably a bit different, but that's probably off the back of the financial situation. The teams have got themselves in a state - or the sport has.
"In terms of the product - Formula One - I'm surprised Bernie let that happen with Kimi. He loves this sport, loves what it's about.
"For someone like Kimi you have to make sure things are organised to ensure it doesn't happen.
"Back surgery can wait two weeks, although I completely understand Kimi's position, 100 per cent.
"But at this level, with all the smoke and mirrors, the staff members, everyone at the factory, the drivers, should all be accounted for. The numbers should add up.
"F1 has got itself into a position where people are on the squeeze, and that's what the sport needs to address, hopefully pretty quickly for the sake of everyone."
Webber's words were an echo of compatriot Daniel Ricciardo, who may be driving for the sport's best team in Red Bull next season as he replaces Webber, but even he is savvy enough to recognise all is not well with F1.
As Ricciardo said recently: "This is the top of motorsport in the world and if a driver like Raikkonen is not getting paid then the sport is not in the best shape."
Whilst pay drivers have been the norm for many years, Webber believes the balance has shifted too far towards what money a young guy brings with him, as opposed to the talent he possesses.
"Of course, you have to give talent a chance," added Webber.
"I'm not saying you should always have experienced guys because then there is a bottle neck in bringing young talent through.
"But there needs to be an extra flow from somewhere to get the nostrils of these guys above the water comfortably.
"Formula One must have the best drivers, all the way through, with the midfield teams taking on guys on the bubble to prove themselves to go to the top teams.
"That's why it's refreshing to see someone like Kevin (Magnussen at McLaren) getting a run next year.
"That's great in terms of the fact he doesn't have much to bring to the party, except talent, and that's what it should be about."
Asked, therefore, whether he was getting out at the right time, with Porsche's sportcar programme beckoning after his farewell in Brazil next weekend, Webber said: "I'm not going to say that.
"Maybe the sport is going through a bobble and it will all be good in the future.
"But when you have a driver say he's not made a decision as to which team he is going to join then that is the wrong way round.
"Then you have someone like Hulkenberg who is very handy and special, but he is struggling to get a drive.
"The sport has changed a lot in 10 to 12 years. That makes it quite unhealthy for the driver market."
