If he'd had told them, the immediate response would have been to adopt a supporting role to SV. I guess that he didn't want this given he was ahead of SV at the time and wanted a full shot at the title no matter what. It shows the amount of faith that he has with his team.

Imo, just shows that MW is not a team player and doesn't work for it either since by hiding his injury the whole team could or would have lost the WDC if they had chosen him as 1st driver during the last races of the season.

Was keen on MW grabbing the 2010 title although Vettel deserved it in the but I hoped Mark got it as he's unlikely to have another chance.

This doesn't help his cause though.

Why must it come out now, it's an excuse. This man talks better than he drives, fire him send him home to be a commentator, preferably where I won't have to listen to his drivel. he has been around long enough, time to give up that space to an up an coming youngster, to think Hulkenbeg hasn't a drive while this number two driver ponces about, annoying in the extreme.

After the undiguised bias Webber has had to cop at different stages of this season who can blame him for any reluctance on his part to tell them anything that would give them an excuse to favour Vettel

'Go Home' - Is that you Seb' Vettel??? Certainly sounds like the rambling of a jealous type...?

I blame the poor managerial skills of Horner on this one. The FIA and Marks Physio knew, but still didnt inform Horner themselves? Then again, its all about doctor-pacient confidentiality, ergo, Horner had no right knowing!

it is a most strange way to announce that you had an injury. write a book about it????
but it does show the wisdom of redbull allowing their drivers to fight it out. had they backed webber, to the expense of vettel, and then webber couldnt drive, they would have lost the wdc. webber would have been better advised to tell the team so that they could take steps to support a non injured vettel.
this new revelation wont help his standing in the team.
