Typically Webber signs with Red Bull and things start breaking or strategies start to get weird and Webber no longer beating Vettel. Redbull does it again. Was a dumb strategy, was catching Vettel and breaking away from Alonso on his second set of mediums, could have gone another 5-8 laps and made it a two stopper with last stop going on softs.

He didn't seem to stay out much longer than the others before his first stop even though he started on mediums. I can't understand the strategy with that, given he ended up doing a three stopper.

Webber is being diplomatic...the strategy was foolish on Red Bull's part. He was fast on the mediums and I don't think the wear was an issue for him, any more than anyone else. Real irritating when Webber gains so many places off his start and then gets the brakes put on him by bad strategy.

For almost the whole first half of the season drivers have been whining about tyre wear and Lotteries. And here comes ol' Mark crying because the tyres DON"T wear enough!!
From someone who is usually quite sensible, this is a bit much.
