F1 » HAVE YOUR SAY: Sebastian Vettel - right or wrong?

The outcome of the 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix looks set to divide opinion on Sebastian Vettel, but which side of the fence are you on?

If Rosberg had passed Lewis, would everyone be crying foul saying Hamilton was 'defenceless because he was on fuel saving' so Rosberg was a dirty cheat like people are claiming Mark was 'defenceless because he turned down his engine' and so Seb is a dirty cheat?

Mark and Seb were fighting for 3 laps, please don't tell me that Mark never thought to turn his engine up in that time. If he didn't, he is an idiot.

Truth is that they should never have agreeements like this in the first place. That's why Vettel is the villain here, because he broke the agreement that should never have been made.

Purely for the entertainment value, I'm glad he broke it. No changes in the top 4 for the last 10 laps or so is ridiculous.

If you compare that behavior to Senna, then he must have been open enough to admin that he wanted to win at all cost...but these days being diplomatic and politically correct works better than being a cow boy.

And even if we consider that he missed the 'multi-21' instructions, that pass was simply to risky. If someone was exiting the pits at that time it could have been a massive accident.

when all is said and done,the aim of a race is to win. Best man won. If F1 don't like it this way, why don't they put a robot in the drivers seat and use remote control. This way they can decide which one will win!

I disagree on team orders on principle, however they do exist (even when they were banned) and therefore Seb was in the wrong to ignore a direct instruction from the team. In a season so closely fought, he may live to rue the day he chose this course of action. The points he gained last weekend may pale into insignificance against the points he loses when Webber refuses to help his title challenge later in the year.

Whether or not you agree with "Team Orders" they exist and they are to look after the interests of the Team, the drivers are secondary to that. It would have been a hard lesson for Vettel if his front left had failed or he did not have the required 1 litre of fuel at the end of the race because that would have affected the Teams standing in the championship. I agree with John Watson, Red Bull need to come down hard on him so he understands the importance of working to the Team orders. Everyone else up and down pit lane seems to be able to do it, they may not like it but they have to put the Team first.

SV did what he had to do. That was a race and only the fastest and best driver deserved to win.
The best moment we had during a boring race, was when SV overtook his team mate.

Absolutely 100% correct its the start of the season for goodness sake. If it were the end of the season and one or two points were needed for the championship then I could undrstand team orders but these guys are racing for the title. Let them race and the best driver will win as you can see from the result. I also see "Golden boy" LH got his own way again.
I think this could be a great season, lets have more racing and less politics,no team orders would be great until the very end should they be needed.
