It is very difficult to believe there is no favouritism in RB. Mark cant do standing starts when the team set the software to control them, so even when Seb starts behind, he can still outdrag Marks car. Seb is very good, but Webber must doing a good job as an obvious no 2, as few driver pairings on the grid generally have such equal lap times.
The Redbull now is easily the car to beat on the grid, unless McLaren do a perfect job. Alonso is unlucky to not be in front now, as he done a brilliant consistent job to be 2nd.
RB need a new spokesman now as Horner is getting very boring with his correct pr speak. Perhaps Mark can be no1 in 2014, if the Vettel jumping to Ferrari are true.
May the best man win, given the right equipment!!

Inconsistant hypocricy.

People on here claim that Vettel is average at best, and only gets results with an insanely dominant car. Then, when it is mentioned that the ONLY objective measurement is against his team mate, they claim that there is favortism and sabotage.

Can you people EVER accept the fact that Seb Vettel is the most dominant driver of this decade (so far) and give this young man his due?

Actually, it matters little what you give him... As long as he keeps collecting trophies, the amount of success simply speaks for itself.

Silverstone 2011, Mark told to hold station.
Silverstone 2010 (iirc), Seb wrecks his new front wing, takes Mark's.

Utter bs, that they have equal status in Red Bull

Yeah FreeJack, I get the feeling that Webber wins mostly off of his own bat. But no matter who, you need a good team behind you, or you wont be winning anything. Problem is, the team is not always 100% behind you. Like RBR toward Webber, and it is as clear as day, just listening to Horners after-race PR stunts... *Shiver*

Sarcasm alert: Weber being held down in Vettel's favor goes back to 2008, with SV (STR) gifted 8th to Weber's 11th (RBR), then 2009, 2010, 2011, and now. The two instances of 2010 and 2011 are so blatant that Weber won in 2010 (SV 7th) with the dreaded garbage wing, and in 2011 asked to hold 3rd to Vettel when both trailed Alonso by 16s, killing MW's chance at the 2011 WDC. Then in 2010 when MW looked to beat SV to the 2010 WDC but injured himself on his bicycle prior to the final 3 races, obviously pushed by RBR teamsters protecting SV's position.
