Red Bull they make me see red with their bull. They don't even try to use commonsense they just lie straight to your face with the craziest justifications to cover their Beatle favoritism. Christian Horner is the worst or second worst depending on what the owner is telling him to do. Loved this team until they started treating Webber like a piece of crap. I was not a Webber fan but now would love him to win the WDC and someone else the constructors.

Why is it that people have to be slapped in the face a dozen times to see the obvious???

In Monaco while Vettel had all his new bits already on, Webber was waiting on a delivery taxi minutes before final qualifying.

I've got to say that it is Webber's fault for re-signing with these to55ers next year and he should have seriously looked at Renault.

The other part of this that annoy's me is RBR's insistence that both drivers are equal and yet for all the time Webber's been in front on points he still got the rough end. Really hope ANY other team beats Vettel.

There is only one goal in this team and that is for Vettel to win the WC, they don't give a cracker quite obviously for the constructors...

So if I'm reading this right and the roles were reversed, then Webber could pillage parts from Vettel's car if he was leading the points...Oh thats right, he was and got slapped in the face then.

Have to laugh at the bull5hit this team comes out with, I don't support Webber either, but he obviously knows now what it feels like to be Rubens when at Ferrari....minus the honesty...at least Ruben's was told.

This is starting to look like ferrari in its worst time aka 2002.
I like Vettel and hes a fast driver but he screwed upp and ruined his wing and should have refused to take his teammates wing or is the redbull trying to get around the "no spare car" rule by having it driven by a teammate untill its needed?
Disgusting......

I just don't get why Red Bull racing are treating us fans like blind idiots.
I trully believe that Vettel is a super talented driver.. but that doesn't mean that he should be handed things on a platter. To physically unbolt the front nose (wing) from Webbers car and put it on Vettels.. WTF? If it didn't make a difference then what on earth was the point of it? I can't believe that in the space of two months I have gone from an avid RBR fan.. to a confused and disgruntled RBR fan after Turkey and now simply a Webber fan.
Oh and I have to say leave the finger for the end of the race please Vettel it's an embarrassment, but then again I guess that's just following suit at the moment.

When Kimi went away, there was somewhat emptiness, got no one to cheer for, all looked the same and even talked the same. Now this year I started to like RBR and their policy, being free and not so political alltime like rest of the teams. Finally I felt I got someone to cheer for and again it's taken away from me. As I'm justice for all kind of person, I just can't stand to see whats done to Mark Webber. Vettel damages his wing and they give Webbers wing to Vettel and say that it's no favourism? The same reason why till this day I don't like Ferrari and McLaren is that they have favoured some of their drivers and now Red Bull Racing too. For the sake of justice Webber needs to win today.
