We all knew that the politics were to destabalise red bull, perhaps marko could be taken a little more seriously if along with pointing out the fact that vettel is phenominal and may give the team a couple of tenths, the genius adrian newey is also a good man to have in your 'team' as a 'go to guy'.

So if Marko thinks Fernando only lost because of his "politics", does that mean he thinks the Red Bull's car wasn't the best car in the last few races, and that the Ferrari was better? No matter how much better a driver Fernando was, he wasn't going to win the title without a decent car. In a dry race, the Ferrari just couldn't keep up in the end.

And he calls Vettel's driving "flawless" this year. I can count a number of times when he made stupid mistakes because he was under pressure. And out of the two of them who was the driver who didn't get penalised at all this year? Certainly wasn't Vettel.

Can say I agree with Marko....Alonso's season was very consistent considering the equipment he was using...Red Bull got off to a slow start...if we remove the Japan incident wonder where we would have been? In the end drivers drive, engineers engineer, and Marko is just killing some off time running his mouth.
