Is one driver itemtionally not winning a race, race fixing? If Vettel hadnt done this, Come the end of the season of mark webber was top by a minimal amount and another teams driver second, they might have won te championship... Meaning Vettel not winning when he could meant the best overall driver didn't win?

I simply wonder "who is running the team"?
You surely cannot have a driver who thinks he is bigger than the team and does not need to be controlled by them. Where does this leave Christian Horner and his credibility as the team leader. Vettel is certainly one of the best there is at this moment but he won't be there forever, as the team hopes to go on ad infinitum.

Yes Seb was wrong and unsporting but the real blame is not him

The blame must fall squarely on Christian Horner and Ross Brawn for ordering such stupidity

If cars crash or run out of fuel tough luck you should have done better

We want real racing not this circus

Worst race in years

What Seb did wasn't entirely right, but basically he was just returning the same favour Mark has done a couple of times. Think back to Mark admitting he deliberately disobeyed team orders in Silverstone 2011? Or raced Seb in Brazil last year when told not to? In my eyes, Seb's just playing the same game Mark is. If what Mark did wasn't considered wrong, then Seb has done nothing wrong either.

jim crint. the multi 21, was a reference to an engne map. nothing more. and if you see gweeds post, he is also aware of it. it has been discussed ad nauseum on other sites. it is NOT a code for positions. if rbr actually wanted seb to drop back or hold position, they would not need to use a code, as orders are legitimate. note how they used normal language earlier in the race. ...NO code....plain english. just as merc also used.
NOWHERE in the radio broadcasts, has there been referenct to no overtaking. only the message not to be silly. WE dont know all the facts, but adding 2 + 2 and making 5, is all rather pointless.

when was mw told to remap his engine
did mw remap his engine
when was vettel asked to map his engine
did he remap
was there a verbal instruction not to pass
when was this given
+ many more

contd. i am surprised that seb didnt use the excuse used by many drivers in the recent and distant pass..."sorry, my radio wasnt working". i even heard lulu use that as an excuse!!

i also see that daimler ag are furious over the call to nico. expect more fireworks.

I dont think vettel was really wrong its a race the championship is still open for everybody i dont think horner or the team had the right to call team orders everybody are still racing for the championship so in my opinion i dont really see a fuss about this if webber wanted the win badly he should have raced
