what a ****er, thinks hes bigger than the team does he? Vettel has shown whats inside, and its pretty ugly, the team has spent 3 years dedicated to giving him a chance to win the world championship, in fact they have given him the best car of each year, and this is how he repays them.........petulent childish reaction whic could have taken both cars off (webber mst be credited for this not happening), i didnt have much respect for him before, sebs winning finger right back at you *****

Vettel was right! Mark could have switched his engine back to 11 as well, it's just a switch. Instead he decided to almost crush his team mate against the wall (quite the team player as well) Seb kept his foot down, as he is a real racer unlike Webber, who wanted to rely on team orders. If this is what you guys prefer, fair enough, but I don't. This whole situation is just great stuff for the Vettel haters. If it would have been the other way around you would have had an orgasm! This is F1, Seb is without doubt a selfish boy, but so are the others.

I remember the old days when Prost and Senna took eachother out in Suzuka. When Prost did it, they were teammates, and how do we view them today? We see them as legends of the sport, even though they were ruthless in their driving, namely Senna. Honestly, this compared to that is nothing. Sure it wasn't the greatest thing Seb could've done, but when has Webber really helped out Vettel. The only time I remember, was last year in Brazil, he let him pass once, and that was because he was out of the championship. Otherwise, he put his teammate three wide into turn one, and almost took him out in turn 1 at the start. And atleast Vettel is trying to apologize and explain everything. Yes it was stupid for him to have lied, but honestly did Prost apologize when he crashed Senna in Suzuka? I doubt it, but I'm just putting my thoughts out there.

i think vettel was more than welcome to take the position , this is racing at the end of the day and winning is every racing drivers target.
Webber doesnt stand a chance at the title anyway, bottled it for 3 years in a row just retire mark your useless!!

There are do sides to the story. Sebastian did a dirty move, which he should not have, given that Mark turned his engine down and and was told to cruise, he just was not prepared to defend. The second one is based on the fact that he really wanted to win in order to create a big gap bewtween him an Alonso. Seb is an employee who receives a huge amount of money from the team hence needs to listen. He just cannot ignore the orders. If I was the boss there would be a penalty involved. No driver is bigger then a team and everyone can be replaced.

Sebastian Vettel's behaviour demonstrates absolutely breathtaking arrogance and disregard of the most basic rules of sportsmanship. He should leave Formula 1 now, and find some other career where callous ruthlessness is admired.

For Seb Vettle to claime that he "got it wrong" is a bunch of B.S. The Red Bull team is owned by an Austian multi billonare , who clearly supports Vettle over Weber. Now two things would determine the outcome of Vetlle's pass on Weber:
1. The type of repremind Vettle recieves for ignoring team's request
2. If in the future shoe'd be in the other foot, this time Weber passing Vettle under same conditions, and expecting the same treatment from the team.

Thinking about it i think this was all the teams fault

Team orders before race who ever is in front at the last pitstops stays ahead, Vettel thought i am in pole Marks in 5th all good , Mark agrees too as it is normal thing.

Mark gets a great start for once gets to second , later seb is given the choice when to come in for slicks, he comes in one lap to early , webber comes in later gets ahead , seb is angry he looses position.

contd
Seb wants to race in the middle stint, complains webber is to slow he wants to get past , team tells him to hold stations as there is still half the race to go, team wants to conserve tyres.

Seb thinks he is faster then webber, team are not allowing him to challenge for the lead sees his opportunity at the last pit stops and goes for it.

The team did not let them race in the middle stint when they should of if they had i don't think this would of turned out like it did.
