just because marko says what he thinks, and mark does too, that does not mean that either is wrong. marko is paid to do his job, and if he is saying these things to fire mark up, well, good! mark needs something to help him raise his game! he habitually fades towards the end of the season, and to those who claim that he is being sabotaged,,,,balderdash. vettel is just able to drive what he is given a bit better, and adapts more quickly to changing circumstances.

the funny thing is that marko has helped provide rbr with three wdcs and three wccs, so he cannot be as bad as some of the keyboard jockeys, make out.
i am sure that didi would let him go if he did not have faith and trust in him.
webbers fate is in his own hands!

Break it down Richard.

You know as well as I Marko is employed by D.M.
under the "Old Mates Act" and still persists with his
embarrassing comments which D.M requires to clarify at times .

This time he let it ride and left it to Mark who gave
a very subtle but precise reply.

As for the 3 WCC's. Who drives the cars for this achievement and furthermore who does the design that has the impact. Not Marko who's agenda appears to be a unsettling factor both with with RBR and STR.

For me Webber finishing behind Jenson in that fantastic RB7 told the story, OK he got beat by his teammate who is a record breaker but by a 143 points .

Webber should be unfazed by Markos comments because the comments are accurate which deep down Webber must know so no need for Mark to be upset with credible comments from Red Bulls EMPLOYED adviser

@Richard, very true, Marko has a job to do, he was doing said job less vocally up to the point where Alonso was overhauled in the standings, once Seb hit the top Helmut suddenly had an oppinion on everyone (smuggness!). Instead of negativity he should appreciate and 'thank'/appreciate McLaren/Hamilton for falling out of the lead on several occasions and allowing Seb/RBR a bigger share of the points, he is a 'smugg' barsteward

Helmut Marko is NOT "employed" by the RedBull Infiniti F1 Team! He is no part of the "TEAM". He is an advisor and contact for Dietrich and an 'overseer' of the RBYDDP, he has no role to play other than babying (or "managing") Sebastian Vettel.

As someone alluded to, he is an outside, outsourced advisor by means of Dietrich..... That is why Mark Webber doesnt care about what he says.

Don't disagree but isn't a contractural agreement
a form of employment unless you do nothing to
satisfy the said agreement or endeavour to inflict emotional harm on the said contractors employees.
