In an extraordinary claim, former grand prix star Gerhard Berger has accused Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber of trying to take out one of his F1 2010 title rivals in last weekend's inaugural Korean Grand Prix

Sorry Gerhard + haters, you're wrong. Just had a look on YouTube and to me it's crystal clear. You can see from the in-car footage that Webber actually steers left to stay off the line, but it doesn't work cos the right wheel is off the ground and the broken left one has no steering and is pointing the other way. He's just sliding really. Even if he was braking he's only have the rear end brakes working and that probably wasn't enough to stop him on the wet tarmac. Not. His. Fault.

I used to respect Berger. However, I find three flaws in his reasoning:
1) That Mark was able to process the movement of the car, realise he was screwed and plan to take out a rival all in a fraction of a second. If he was able to do this, he would not have crashed in the first place.

2) Mark was running 3rd, behind his two rivals. Taking out Hamilton is pretty unnecessary.

3) Webber has already had one spectacular crash. Having someone his him side on at 200km/hr does not do his title chances any good, as he would have a much lower chance of winning one if he is deceased.

Into the “Seen but not heard from” box with you Gerhard. Oh, and take Helmut Marko with you.

Also, the only one Webber is really worried about is Vettel. He knows he would have lost the WDC there and then if Vettel would have won the race. It makes no sense at all to crash out one of the only two drivers left on the track that could keep Vettel from winning.

Absolute bullshit, Mark didn't crash on purpose and the speed of which he slewed accross the track meant he was simply a passenger and had no real control.
I wish these ex racers would either say something intelligent or shut the **** up.
