And so they should. If anyone else had made that move they would have gone crazy at the driver.

Lets hope for another good race next time out and time to stop dwelling on this incident.

Doesn't change the fact that he lied more than once in this saga and that I have still lost all respect for what I thought was a fair Red Bull team (excluding Mark Webber)

Perhaps a bit of a bookend on one of the most poorly handled PR moments in some time.

Oh, but wait...it won't be. Since RB has now managed to create a PR atmosphere where, no matter what happens on or off the track at this point, conspiracy theories will abound.

Nice that RB finally realizes 70% of fans, media and drivers are not so easily beguiled, but sad that they were willing to cash in the credibility they had otherwise earned as a team, in terms of "telling it like it is".
Now, RB is really is just like the Ferrari's, Williams, McLarens, Renault's. Guess they finally have put their Big Boy pants on.

This is just calculated PR - nothing has changed within the team.

Both drivers have a bad reputation when it comes to passing and I doubt if either will change their attitude if a similiar situation arises in future.
