I totally agree with you, why the hell Vettel is called as crash-kid, he has only made several mistakes this season, in Turkey and in Belgium, these were also racing situations. I think the biggest mistakes he has done this season is letting too much spaces between him and Webber behind SC in Hungary. But yes, look at Webber 6 crashes this season, it's totally horrible... The most stable driver will win and unfortunately it will be Alonso.

Check the playbacks. He comes off the wall minus one wheel, one wheel broken and one wheel in the air. So goodluck hitting the brakes on one wheel on a wet slippery track.

Berger = idiot

sorry to tell you this Sasha but webber had all four wheels attached to the car until he hit rosberg and he could have made an effort to brake to prevent himself from rolling back onto the circuit as even if he had one wheel not touching the circuit he wouldn't know be aware of that until he tried to brake and it looks like he did not brake.. but again i would hope it is nonsence from berger and has no truth to it as i like webber

reading bergers comment again, it is clear that he is being seriously misquoted. he didnt say that the move was deliberate, that comment was added by the reporter to emphasise the reply that berger gave, he said "!clearly" and the reporter put a meaning to that. further, his comment that he would have preferred to crash into one of his rivals, was a totally "tongue in cheek" comment. if you were going to eliminate someone, it would be more to your advantage if that someone was a rival. this does not mean that he deliberately aimed for the car behind!

How is it that Crash.net seems to bring all the dipsticks out making comments about things they know nothing about? It is blatantly obvious that Webber was not applying the brakes as he rolled backwards alongside the wall, before the car veered back across the track!! Blatantly farkin obvious!!! The only thing Berger has got wrong is that Webber had no intention of trying to take out Alonso.....it was Hamilton he was after!! Hamilton is "Billy No Mates" in the F1 pitlane. None of the other drivers like him or his cocky attitude, or his gobshite comments..most of them cant stand the fact he thinks hes so good, yet has failed to achieve anything this year it was has been clearly the fastest car all season through the speed traps with the F-Duct bullcrap!! And Mark Webber is in no mood to be doing Red Bullcrappers or Vettell any favours as far as the Drivers Title is concerned! If Mark cannot win the title himself, then his next choice would be for his friend Alonso to win it....SIM

That was my first thought when i saw the crash. Don't get me wrong I like Webber and I would love to see him win the championship, but come on, unless he had a technical problem with the brakes he could have stopped the car against the wall. I would be willing to bet that the telemetry shows that as soon as he hit the wall, he took his foot off the brake. It could also be that he realized he was going to come to a stop right on the racing line so he was attempting to put the car on the grass on the inside of the track.

I think Berger should mind his own business if he only has crap to say. Its probably just because he never has been in the position Webber is now. I hope Webber wins this years title, ever since he got into the title fight, big part of the paddock only said crap about him. I really want to see all those faces when Webber wins it.

Go Webberrrr!!!
