Vettel lost the little respect i had for him. He's a petulant, untrustworthy, deceitful individual who has no respect for anybody, except his Rottweiller manager- Skid Marko.
Webber did the better job throughout and still Red Bull conjured up a second place for him. Not sure if the rivalry will be resumed in Shanghai, if I was Mark Webber I'd walk away for the Vettel circus. A race winner he is, a champion he ain't. His behaviour and apology was appalling and an insult

See what happens when Webber gets a decent start? It catches everyone by surprise.

Did Seb not hear the "Multi 21" radio call? Selective deafness on his part, maybe. Did RBR send it more than once when it became obvious what was going down? Don't know.

Seb will cry tears of remorse for as long as everyone wants- but it doesn't matter, he got the points, he gets to keep the points, and he knows it. He also knows RBR will do nothing worthwhile about it because he is their 3 x world champion, so on the chance that Webber somehow ends up in front of him again, the pit wall can "Multi 21" all they want- he won't hear it again.

@ Tarzan - You're kidding right ?

Everybody knows Turkey 2010 was 100% Beibers fault.
If you think about it Seb has just pulled the same dirty stinking stunt he pulled back then:

When it got to that point in the race where it was time to turn engines down etc, Seb turned his up and went for it, but got left with egg on his face with a DNF.
This time round he is owed a black eye, why not 2 !

Seb is earning himself a bad legacy like Schumi.
Every top 100 driver poll always show Schumi being put down the list because of his ethics etc. The same will happen to Beiber. Schumi was that good he didn't need to cheat, but did it anyway.
Beiber on the other hand is not in the same league as Schu was and it's been proven that with real competion Seb is not that good.

It's too early in the season for team orders, let them fight it out on track and live with the consequences. This is racing after all, not syncronized swimming.

Sebs problem is Marko Helmet - he has driven Seb forward and consistantly undermined Mark at every opportunity. Do we want team order racing no!

It has always been the same though all the way back to the 50s. Schumaker brought dirty play to the highest level taking out Hill and Villneuve a trend started by Senna.

More racing in the style of Sunday's will only lead the BBCto dump any remaining live cover.

Bring back Moss & Brooks Ah! Real gentlemen

Webber was told to turn his engine down because he would run out o fuel before the race ended if he kept up the pace of his first two stints. Red Bull also knew that Hamilton faced the same problem and they would not allow Nico to pass in order to chase down the Red Bulls. Seb chose a different strategy and he had both the fuel and the tyres to up his pace in the last stint. So, he did well not to follow the team orders. Neither Ayrton nor Michael, two great champions, would have obeyed either. Frankly, I think that no team would dare issue such orders to them. Seb made it clear to his team that he is indeed a great champion, and in my book he became one by ignoring the idiotic order to stay behind a slower car.
