"Seb is certainly going it alone for the rest of the season, Webber will not forget"

I don't think Seb forgot all the "help" Webber gave him last year - the way he waved Alonso past but did everything he could to keep Seb behind him in the last few races.

I don't why Seb has apologized. He did nothing wrong. Nothing that Webber hasn't done before.

He did nothing wrong?!?, Seb completely ignored what his team (the ones that pay his wages) asked him to do. It's clear all Seb was thinking about was himself and not the team.

No matter what people say, F1 racing is a team sport.

Wow some people are thick.The reason the reaction would be different if Mark passed Vettel in the same situation is because the political situation in that team is totally geared in favour of Vettelbecause of the German team owner. So Seb is generally the one Mark is not allowed to pass and Seb is the guy that gets away with passing his teammate against team orders. Duh.

Why are F1 fans so much more immature than the fans of other sports? You'd think this sport would attract a more wonkish, intellectual sort. But what you get are hysterical ninnies looking for an excuse to express their emotions.

"The reason the reaction would be different if Mark passed Vettel in the same situation is ..."

.. because you are a bigot who hates Germans and can't stand seeing one win.

Webber turned his engine down as instructed, Vettel ignored team instructions and overtook Webber - aggresively - Webber gave him room, so as to not take Vettel out.
This was not racing, this was a selfish brat taking advantage of a team mate obeying team orders.
Hamilton and Rosberg had a much more mature attitude to team orders post race.
It is sad that a man with Vettels talent cannot behave maturely. Mark is right, Vettel will be protected by Red Bull which is just plain wrong.

Team Orders 2nd race in?

No Way!

Far too early in the season for the Team to call for this.

If near the end of the season its needed, then fair enough, but not now!.

Niko should have done the same thing and taken Lewis's place.
