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?

I'm saying this from the view of a neutral.

If someone like Alonso had done the same thing, ignoring team orders to pass his team-mate, I'm pretty certain that the people here will call him as disgrace, cheater, betrayer etc, just like what they are calling Vettel now.
But, if Webber had done this to Vettel, or Massa had done this to Alonso, disobeying team orders to pass his teammate, the same poeple will say 'Well done Mark' or 'Well done Felipe'! That is how it should be done, showing the team that you are not just a mere #2, team orders sucks - it is all about the best driver of the day winning'..!

I am sorry but the object of motorsport is to get as high as possible and overtake cars to win races? That's all Vettel did if Webber was that much of a good racer why didn't he fight him back? It is ridiculous if teams are using team orders this early on. Mercedes are getting criticism for not letting there drivers race when the guy behind was clearly quicker. The situation was yesterday Webber had cold tyres so Vettel was clearly quicker now if he didn't pass and got held up you would be giving the team criticism for not letting there drivers race like Mercedes are getting. It is the same people moaning about both teams, so you damned if you and your damned if you don't. I will tell everyone something now that could of won Vettel the championship, no one sees it but he could of done something very clever there. Alonso was out probably will be his closest rival this season he took maximum advantage of that. This is why Vettel is a world champion because you have to be selfish to be

It,s easy for all of us to talk foolishness i think Vettel was because the race was open with ten laps to go and he was faster than mark .Yesterday was a sad day for F1 when we paying our hard earn cash to see a team telling a driver to hold back so someone else could win a race , we went over this many times and i think it,s time the fia put a band on team orders if you want some one to win do that in house by telling them the guy in the lead should finish that way don,t come at race day doing that foolishness it ,s time we enjoy racing the way it should be.

I think Vettel is an arrogant, selfish person. What makes him so superior that he can just ignore his team and do what he wants.
why could he not have shown the restraint that Nico Rosberg did whilst sat behind his 'SLOWER' team mate.
The whole thing is getting ridiculously political.

Mr Horner was being a little naive if he thought his instructions would be followed so far from the end of the race.Vettel wants to win a fourth championship and all points count. When Webber realised Vettel was closing why did he not turn up his power again? All good fun.

Another thing also we have 11 teams that running on tyres that if f1 was,nt safe would kill drivers yes when pirelli leaves fi they have a great tast of convincing ppl to buy they tyres because right now looking at what they are doing i would never put one of they tyres on any of my vehicles.

Champions go out and win championships, ask Eddie Irvine..................... ah he didn't go out to win.

Webber didn't help Vettel to the championship last year, especially in the last race. Jealousy is a terrible thing.

Vettel did nothing wrong. At the end of the season those 7 points could be the difference between winning the championship or not.

Webber did nothing wrong. Vetterl was the one that broke team orders. The team manager could not control Vettel.
Horner is the one that has the Explainsing to do now one else
