F1 » 'Raw' Webber considering quitting?


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

@cknopp
If Seb Vettel was arrogant, he would say that. But inspite of his wdc's, Vettel is still down to earth and not arrogant. Ignore the losers who are Vettel haters and say Vettel is arrogant.

Clear instructions at redbull and Mercedes and they are the only reason Vettel and Rosberg got anywhere near their teammates..end of. Massa, Maldonado and half a dozen other drivers and vettel would have been in the kitty litter. Webber has to respond, or he might as well go home,especially now he's not ****d about being in an rb.. Not actually convinced that Horner didn't engineer the whole thing.. Did anyone see Vettel talking to Newey after the race?? saying he was faster than webber and newey turned to him and said the data didn't support that viewpoint, vettels face was a picture.. lets hope Newey is so embarrassed he moves to mercedes next season after all he a dignified Chap...

Jake it's obvious you are in love with vettel

What you have to think about that f1 is a team game and vettel went against the whole team to show how selfish he really is as a racing driver. The team were only asking to bring both cars home and in the order of the final pitstop. Rosberg showed he can do it as much as he should have been let past.

I really wouldn't blame webber for leaving the team after this race as it has shown him how much he is valued in the team

If only he would.

Rosberg will never be allowed past Hamilton. Massa is never allowed past Alonso. But in RB's case, they use team orders to keep the No 2 driver ahead of the No 1 driver? Crazy.

"Clear instructions at redbull and Mercedes and they are the only reason Vettel and Rosberg got anywhere near their teammates"

Webbers slowness was causing Vettel to be backed up into range of Hamilton. Anybody who thinks that Vettel is not significantly faster than Webber must have just started watching F1 a day ago.

I can fully understand Webber here tbh. You don't want to be in a team where your team mate will ignore a team order to pull a sneak attack on you while you were under the knowledge it wouldn't happen. The fact that Marko and the history with the team seemingly working against him means he still has the opinion that the team will protect Vettel. He said so on the podium. At the end of the day he chose to drive for Red Bull because of how good the car is. Winning was more important to him than being in a comfortable environment. I fear the tide may be changing there.

"f1 is a team game"

None of the people suddenly in love with team rules would be saying that if Webber had been second and had ignored team orders to take the win. And you know that as well as I do.

If this had played out the other way around, there would be calls to give Webber a knighthood.

If only he actually had the cojones to quit. He will go away and reflect and then inevitably stay on. Shame. He should quit and go drive another car. Better to die on your feet than live on your knees!

Have to say Im a big fan of Webber as a person and one of the drivers you would chose as a mate but cant understand why RB wanted him to stay ahead of Vettel who is already ahead in the championship. Let the fastest guy win - period.

That did not happen. You people really need to watch the races and no believe whatever drivel the British press serves up to you. There was no "sneak attack". The two RB drivers raced each other hard.
