“Of course I ignored the team (order) as I want to try and get a place” -- Mark Webber Silverstone 2011

Mark did the exact same thing in Silverstone 2011. He was told to back off of Seb who's car was damaged (by Alonso) but he kept pushing and tried to pass (but failed).

All the top drivers have lied one time or another to save their butts.

Alonso: No I had nothing to do with Piquet's crash.
Lewis: I didn't let Trulli pass.
Seb: I didn't get the team order
Button: This is the best car we have ever made.

See, all of them have lied.

I feel like this is an AA meeting:

My name is Pixie Hickies and I love motorsport!

Today was a total joke. Team orders should not be a part of ANY race. Especially this early in the season. I do concede that the team should be bigger than any individual, therefore they make the call. However I find it hard to separate the ones that I love watching as opposed to the ones that win. Generally I get involved in the 'what if..' discussions. Not today. I could spend ages to put my POV across. I won't. The ramifications of today will last for the rest of the season. I also fear that the one that should have won will be that loses in the grand scheme of things. TLDR Vettel acted like Casey Stoner today. Another whiny self entitled bitch.
