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

When Seb was behind Weber asking to be allowed to pass, and denied, he backed off to preserve tires and hung that interval until the next stop, Weber did not pull out a gap, look at the lap times. IMHO, we need more drivers ignoring team orders, it's gotten out of control. we have a winner feeling guilty for winning, a second place driver angry he was not gifted the win, and a 3rd place winner feeling guilty for being gifted third? What a stupid sport F1 has become. We also need more outrage that the last 15 laps are parade laps to conserve crap tires. What happened to F1 RACING?

No Mark don't quit. You obviously have the pace. It's a long season, battle like f,,,, and show mr Vettel what you have over the year. 2013 WORLD CHAMPION.... How's that sound. Go on son give um some stick .

Mark may actually be faster than petal, as he does weigh 14kg more, which would equate to about 3 tenths of a second time disadvantage per lap. Unless of course Mark's RB is lighter than petal's?

It would be pretty bad if Mark walked away, just leaves a bad vibe all round. Understandable though, regardless of what anybody in Red Bull management says about drivers getting equal treatment/resources past history shows that to be false.

If he's going to quit he might as well crash into petal a few times before leaving... Lol.

@kevin: that would be fine if Seb hadn't benefitted in the past from Webber letting him through, but this time it was the other way around and Seb wasn't going to allow Mark to get the same benefits that he gets.

"Seb on softer tyres uses them all after Mark also decides to ignore the team and turns his engine back up to fight, loosing all points in this race."

MARK NEVER TURNED HIS ENGINE DOWN.

Sorry to shout, but some of you can't seem to listen.

MARK NEVER TURNED HIS ENGINE DOWN.

Stop repeating this stupid lie that he did.

"Mark carried on obeying team orders even when he was under attack from vettel and still gave a good fight."

Neither driver complied with team orders. If you look at their lap times by lap, BOTH of them sped up and raced each other hard. Or you could look at the race - like that's going to happen. This stuff about Webber doing the noble thing and letting Vettel past because he was obeying team orders is, in technical terms, a crock.

John, why do you feel the need to yell? I would speculate you are yelling because you are trying to force a point that simply isn't true.

It's a fact of the sport that the teams need to conserve their engines. One of the ways they do this is by turning them down, lowering max revs, changed throttle map etc.

Once a race is all wrapped up it is absolute common sense for a team to go "ok boys save your engines for another day" weather we like that or not is irrelevant, it happens.
