F1 » Vettel, RBR to discuss ignored orders

Sebastian Vettel is to explain why he ignored calls to park his car in the closing stages of the Malaysian GP - and could face further hot water for gesticulating at Narain Karthikeyan.

Gee we get a guy with great racing attitude and passion for what he's doing and he gets pulled up for being a wee bit p**sed off! Rather than condemn a bloke for the charge of actually having some character lets hold him up as an ideal for the rest of the boring gits populating the grid. I'll exclude Button, Kobayashi and Raikkonnen. 4 stars amid a grid of chorus girls

rob. one brake was overheating due to damage to the brake duct, when tyre went. remember, the bull uses exhaust gasses on the duct. it looks as if seb was aware of the problem and felt he could drive around it. i dont think that he was endangering others as there was no other car close to him. many drivers have decided to soldier on with a problem and survived. in the last three or four years i can remember several, and then there was schumi and what about gv?
i dont kow if he was right or not, but the fact that he ignored a specific instruction (which he has acknowledged) probably wont go down well.
but look at comments from the likes of stuck. he says it was right to go on, IF you are in control.

The form Webber and Vettel are showing now is exactly the way it was before Seb got his super car. He was like this the season before he got the first championship. Remember that year he drove into his own team mate . This reminds me of someone we all know very well .

@ richard. Last time I checked, Vettel was not a mechanical or composites engineer, nor does he have, on his display, details of the various temp sensor readouts from his car. So to ignore the instruction/command from his engineer is foolhardy - and maybe an action that could provoke censure from the FIA. He had no way of knowing if a component was about to fail.

Of course, it could have been the team trying a clever ploy to get round the gearbox regs - but even so, on the basis he was not in the know, then he should have stopped when instructed to.

One day his "brilliance" will catch him out...
