"every time something happens, it happens to Mark,"

1) not true (Vettel has had KERS problems too, wrong strategy cost him the win in China)

2)2010 that sentence works too, only replace Mark with Sebastian

3) isn't Briatore Webber's manager?

I must agree with Flavio as to be honest it's obvious vettel is a wanabe schumacher and has tantrums like him too. Webber is suffering like Rubbens did.

makes me wander what the younger drivers like vettel and Hamilton would be like if they had to drive slower cars lotus/hrt ect.and like some older drivers on track have a proper apprenticeship,that way they may learn manners and learn to grow up.both vettel and hamilton are a couple of spoiled kids.i personaly think that both there team mates are as good if not slightyly quicker given the same machines and the same chances.while i agree younger drivers should be given a chance they should be made to do several seasons in slower back marker cars and learn there craft from that before progressing up the grid,basicaly these two youngsters have dummy spitting to a fine art.to be a good driver they must have a cool head and use there brains

How long before he realises that the Torro Rosso had a significant hand in causing the red flag which Vettel very badly needed !!! Conspiracy theory :-)

Paul, are you forgetting that vettel did time in the much slower torro rosso, and I believe he took that to a victory. Webber did nothing until he got a good car, he is a number 2 driver.

Who is the guy speaking?
Briatore is KNOWN as one of the least ethical and most underhanded people ever to take part if Formula 1.

Even worse than Alonso, for pity's sake, and he is pretty bad.

If Flavio Briatore says that 2+2=4 it is time to question our understanding of math because it probably is not 4 any more.

Andrew...another gobshite nonsense comment from you, keeping up the good work as usual! Everybody knows Vettel is the favoured driver at Bullcrappers as he represents their future! They have re-signed him for 4 years, whilst Webber is only going to get a 1 year extension if he is lucky. Why would Flashio reopen this debate, unless he can see for himself that his driver is getting a sh!t deal? I would take a guess Flashio knows a lot more than any of us about the inner workings at Bullcrappers, so Im more inclined to accept his remarks regarding the situation in this team!!
