Mark Webber: I think it's very early days right now, it's very raw, obviously, and we need to work out how the team goes best forwards from here

Nooooo! Mark is one of the coolest guys in F1 and I one of the genuinely nicest in the paddock. I don't know why he re-signed for red bull...they always treat him like ****. His experience would add a lot to one of the mid-field teams like Force India or Mclaren

What a huge over-reaction.
Frankly, Webber is nothing but a number 2 driver like Massa is to Ferrari. SV has proven to be consistently faster for as long as they have been in the same team.
At the end of the season, it will be Vettal challenging for the championship, not Webber, & the extra points today for first compared with second, could end up making all the difference.
Seb was clearly faster so if Red Bull didn't want them to race, they should have instructed Webber to pull over and let him through.

Joining mclaren would be a good option. They are in desperate need of a talented driver with experience who knows how to set up a car. Probably should wait for twitmarsh to leave first though, but that will probably happen by end of season

He signed simply because it is the best car on the grid.
He signed knowing Helmet Marko is very much in Seb Vettel's corner thus making him a no2 driver.
He signed up for this. Whilst acknowledging his 'nice' guy image, that won't win WDCs.
It's a fact in this sport.
Seb today demonstrated his darker self!
Pity really but I'm not surprised.
On the other hand we today at least saw another driver keep intact what respect he has.
Hamilton's admission was refreshing and he and Nico look set to have the solidarity to take the fight to RBR.
It may also shed some light on some of the 'alleged' bad boy antics of JB at McLaren according to some posters here.
If harmony reigns then it would seem there may be truth in the rumours.

Sad day for F1 as a sport. two teams prevent true winners from winning . But even worse we see the true selfesh nature of some drivers Webber has taken the hit for Vettle before and Seb paid a now apparent hollow appreciation for this at the time . Hamilton is now as he hs always been dependant on the everyone bowing to his needs hence his departure from Mclaren as button wont bow to him . Nico had a fair crack at Schuie but now has been beaten into submission to satisfy Hamilton surley the better result for the team was to let Nico chase the red bulls . I dont blame Mark for this statment and to be honest it reflects my feeelings as a fan . this may finally be the final straw for me at least . Hopefully not for Mark as he is one of the few Honest drivers left in the sport . sad Sad Day

"It may also shed some light on some of the 'alleged' bad boy antics of JB at McLaren according to some posters here. "

And what bad boy antics would they be? Angelina constantly bangs on about all the bad things Button did to Hamilton, but as yet, surprise surprise, can't tell us what they are.

The only thing Button did was join McLaren and give Hamilton a bloody good run for his money. The fact that the team liked him better than Hamilton is hardly his fault.

People who say "Vettel was faster" just illustrate how clueless they are. Everyone is driving to conserve their tyres (and towards the end, their engines) so while Vettel is historically faster than Webber a majority of the time (albeit it usually reasonably close), the fact is Webber was told to turn down his engine (and they would go to the flag with him ahead and Vettel second), hence Vettel caught him. That's all there is to it, no one can tell actually who was faster - even Vettel's petulant "I am faster than him, move him out of the way" was responded to by Webber pulling away over half a second the next lap.

yes. a bit of an over reaction by webber. when he does the same to seb, we didnt hear seb saying that he was going to quit the sport. instead he fought back and showed who was the faster driver. so the answer is in webbers hands....win legitimately on the track rather than rely on team orders
