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

Totally ignorant of the sport are the Webber bashers. The constructors title is far more important to a team than the world championship. The restrictions placed on the number of engines per year has forced all teams to slow down when position in the race are fairly static. The Red Bull drivers have always been free to race each other until the final pitstops are complete. It has been the RULE IN THE TEAM for several seasons that after the final pitstop they are not to race each other. It was agreed to by both drivers for dozens of races until today. So Seb has put his ego ahead of what is best for the TEAM. The Telemetry showed that Webber was faster than Seb in that race when pure speed with no restrictions was allowed. Seb must have been proud to beat a bloke who had just tuned his engine down to produce about 80BHP less.

I am a Webber fan and an Aussie, harden up Mark. Racing is 'supposed to be' when the fastest, best prepared and the one willing to take a risk (where their competitors are not), usually wins.

Like it or not, Vettel was faster and hungry enough to take the win in Malaysia. You were not and relied on 'Team orders' for victory. Sorry mate, if it was down to me there would be no Radios, no team orders and you would be on your own to win or not.

Do not give up, harden up and find the mongrel in you to beat Vettel, it is time to show what you can do, beat him one race at a time and take the Championship off him.

It for sure was a stab in the back. I have never heard Vettel fall all over himself apologizing to the team and mark. Saying HE messed up. He knew Mark wasn't expecting to be attacked. Worse part is he LIED trying to make himself not look like an a ss.

Angelina getting pole does not make you the fastest racer on the track for the race, it makes you the pole sitter. Yesterday Webber was faster right until the team pulled up stumps and said "lets conserve and save those engines for the next battle with the other teams".

Yes Seb won which technically makes him "faster", yes it probably didn't harm his engine/tyres too much this time. I suspect that was more because Mark continued to conserve as he was instructed to.

It's a long season for 8 engines, they would've done irreparable damage to the WCC prospects had they duked it out for the remainder of the race.

"Totally ignorant of the sport are the Webber bashers. The constructors title is far more important to a team than the world championship."

You are totally ignorant of the sport if you believe THAT nonsense. Any team would much prefer to win the WDC rather than the WCC, which is a much less prestigious prize.

Why is it that the typical F1 fan seems to know nothing of the sport? It's as if you encountered foottie fans who did not know the offside rule.
