Mark Webber played the long game and kept his cool as Fernando Alonso disappeared into a dominant lead early in the British GP, confident that he would have his chance.

I think Webber and his side of the garage 'out-tyre-managed' Alonso and his team (no mean feat), however both of them just plain beat SV, still plenty to race for before any team instrucion shenanigans from Red Bull though, I think only Alonso has earned that luxery so far.

@ tealeaf

You serious? A massive disadvantage you reckon... Hmmm yeah um, no. If it were bad, slowing him down or a disadvantage, red bull would have replaced his front wint in 1 second... So no, not really the reality you employ today.

Perez and Maldonado need to look at vision of two soldiers such as Webber and Alonso to view respect between two drivers with a common goal.

@Tealeaf, Webber did half the job when he 'plain beat' Vettel in qualifying yesterday, it put him first in line to have a go should the Ferrari run into trouble, his performance today merely completed the job.

Let's not forget they pitted Vet Vet first trying to get a jump on Webber. Obviously no TEAM strategy because Marks side of the garage responded immediately.

I'll say no more except it is immensely satisfying seeing Mark above Beiber on the table. On his own merits.

Cue the Aussie bashing from the usual suspects.
