If the media did not have Webbers back they would not be concealing the fact that he had a history of breaking team orders himself prior to his tantrum after Sepang.

Yeah, Mark please do. Get out of Sebastian's way. His career isn't even halfway over and you've been hindering him all the way. Despite this, the boy has won 3 WDCs. Go play with some DTMs or something.

Well I feel a bit ambivalent about Webber. On the one hand it's clear that he has to play 2nd fiddle in that team and that Seb is the petulant golden boy. On the other hand, it's clear Webber isn't really good enough to be a champion. He always was quite good in qualifying and would then fall apart in the races but now next to Seb he's usually slower in qualifying and still falls apart too often in races. He squandered the great chance he had in 2010 when Seb made a few mistakes and had some bad luck during the year and now he's probably hoping for a repeat of that but it won't happen. If anything he's gotten a bit less competitive with Seb over time. I don't understand why he didn't take the chance to drive for Ferrari that he was offered twice...but now it's over. Might not be a bad idea/timeto go for a factory ride in endurance racing.

Webber's a snake. Any team stupid enough to hire hm deserves exactly what they get - trouble.

"it's clear that he has to play 2nd fiddle in that team and that Seb is the petulant golden boy."

No, that's not clear at all. What's clear is that Webber regards it as his life's work to cause trouble with Vettel. Being a not-so-great F1 driver is the least of Webber's drawbacks.. He combines the colossal ego and sense of entitlement of an Aonso with the driving ability of a Pic and the morals of a Briatore.

The fact that Briatore is MW's manager really should tell you something.

Just a quick couple of questions to "John - unregistered".
Can you tell me exactly which F1 GPs where Webber has completely ignored team orders and what the team orders were that were deliberately ignored? And also which team Webber was racing for at the time and who his team mate was. Was it when he was with Jaguar or Williams or Minardi or.................
Are you Horner or Newey's personal assistant?
