And he likes Python.. the lad goes up a notch again in the good books.
I'm sure the only reason he mentioned not being a 'God' is that someone in an interview asked him the loaded question, something like that is bound to be taken out of context later.
Good lad.

Your days in the sun with webber are over

Jun15 Mark Webber is clearly sick and tired of being compared to and asked about his young team
Mate Sebastian Vettel and made this known when he lost his cool during an interview with a reporter
From a German newspaper.
Asked by Sport Bild if he speaks a lot with Vettel behind the scenes Webber answered NO. Why. There is no reason for it.
Asked if the pair had discussed the Bahrain situation at all and Webber replied I am 34 years old and I
Read the newspaper. Why should I ask him for his opinion.
Asked if there is too big a gap between his contemporaries and F1s newest generation and Webber conceded yes. You could be right
Then Webber lost his temper. Why do we always have to talk about Vettel. If you to know about him
Ask him

Here's hoping Seb!

Is this yet another sign of cracks starting to show after the humilation of being intimidated right off the track on the final lap?

Although it was Button who showed him the way it's done, in Canada, I back Lewis to be the one to put him in his place, inferior car or not.

Strange things to say for a driver with the best car by miles and a clearly inferior team-mate.

Run Seb run - the Brits smell blood!

rob. not sure what you are trying to say. the interview was by a german mag, so webber should have known that the questions would be about seb. and what he says is right. he is a different generation to seb, so is unlikely to gel or socialise with him. in many teams, drivers only see each other at the various races. ok, webber got cheesed off, but what did he expect? when seb was being interviewed, he wasnt asked similar questions about mark.

So if a Brit mag asks him questions they will for sure ask him about lewis or button. Thats crazy frog talk richard. All the media is aware that Vettel is wearing mark out. He will not sign again with Red Bull in my opinion. At every turn mark has nothing good to say about seb. As i said after canada, he said we all got what we deserved. That was a shot at crazy frog. There is a dark cloud in Vettel's sun shine at Red Bull.

In truth I think this is another one of those situations that rumor-mongering and troublemakers make worse than it really is.
To a large degree each team is two separate teams and there is not necessarily a lot of contact between the two drivers in particular. They WORK together. That doesn't mean they are best buddies.

In ideal situations, yes, drivers MAY be friendly and some teams may have a lot of contact between the two divisions, but some teams have very little.
This is not a new thing in F1 either- been happening for years.

Are Webber and Vettel likely to hang out on days off?
Probably not!
But that doesn't mean much, really.

They don't have to hang out but it plain to see that Webber has taken swings at Vettel this whole year. And most of last year. If he doesn't have anything good to say why speak at all. Instead he says things like glad he got beat, he got the position he deserved, not bad for a number two, etc.. A team can't put up with this. You don't have to be friendly but you sure don't have to make digs.
