F1 » Sauber slates McLaren and Ferrari celebrations as 'unsporting'

A distinctly unimpressed Sauber founder and team owner Peter Sauber has accused F1 2010 title protagonists McLaren-Mercedes and Ferrari of 'very unsporting' behaviour in the wake of Red Bull Racing's Korean Grand Prix misfortune

He has a point - BUT then again, he is probably just jealous. i.e. Can't see the Sauber team ever being in the same position - at least for a few years anyway...

Seeing a bit of emotion from what are normally extremely Stoic teams is in no way unsporting. The RBR's DNFs blew the championship wide open again and showed a chink in the armor of RBR. You can't blame the other teams for being a bit excited.

Yes it was unsporting of the Ferrari and Mclaren team members to act that way. But the Red Bull guys are just as guilty, they were cheering and laughing when lewis retired in singapore.

Unsporting oh please what did he expect they all do it does he think red bull hasn't done the same when a rival has has had some misfortune. It is all part of the game tensions are high and rivalry between the teams is intense it,s all good healthy fun

I thought it was very funny, though it used to be more funny when the Ferrari guys did do this type of stuff while the Mclaren guys didn't. I thought that was an interesting difference but I guess it was enforced by RD.

Everybody knows Vettel was LHAO when he noticed Webber had fallen of the track and then everybody knows Webber was probably trying to do some voodoo to have Vettel's engine explode. And EVERYBODY knows FA was grinning and laughing the hardest of all when he saw these things happen. I think nobody rather wins this way than FA, in fact I think he much prefers this to dominating a race weekend all the way.

So why be hypocritical about it, eh?

celebrating when your competitors suffer a misfortune is human nature, i bet peter sauber will celebrate too if he is in ferrari/mclaren's position, this is a really pointless statement from him
