If Marko is making the excuse for Mark then something must be wrong and to fair the 2 Red bulls are normally very close so im guessing there is a car problem and fifth not to be sniffed at

I don't think Mark was making any excuses to be honest...

I'd say by his tone he is p155ed off at himself because he couldn't do what he believed he is capable of.

Excuses is saying it's something else rather than admitting he couldn't keep up and he is frustrated because he believes he should be able to keep up.

I really think some people read the heading and not the story.

i think the main reason isnt anything to do with the car. Mark knows he must show he can beat Seb straight away this season or he will instantly be playing a support role to maximise Sebs chance of winning the WDC again. this added presure was too much for him. basically he isnt fast enough consistantly and the gaps are only going to become more apparent this season. I am a webber fan.

Commodore, not sure you are on the money this time, Horner has said neither car was running KERS from Saturday due to reliability concerns.

If Marko is actually supporting Webber it either means there is some real problem with Mark's car, or the games are starting again on a more subtle level.

my thoughts on Webber not being able to handle the pressure are just my thoughts and nothing else but you are wrong my friend, neither RedBull had KERS at all and RedBull have said they cannot find anything wrong with the car. if Webbers car had a problem it wouldnt be hard for the team to find it which leaves only one conclusion in my opinion, and thats that Webber simply wasnt quick enough today. we all know he can equal Seb when the pressure isnt so intense so it suggests he couldnt handle the pressure today. just to confirm...I am a webber fan.

The Turkey apparently they were. Even from the data shown on T.V it showed Mark had a heap stored but was unable to use it.

However as you indicate their may be other disturbing factors. The discrepancy between these two cars is a little hard to believe

He'll probably 'let it slip' at the end of the season that he is suffering from two broken legs.

Just hope he gets on with it and doesn't make any silly statements which make him look completely stupid, in the context of being outclassed by Seb. By no means a poor driver but he should know his place by now.
