Christian Horner is no longer in control at Red Bull - at least that is how it looks to the rest of the world.

If Christian Horner does take a sever disciplinary action like suspending Vettle for 1 race his own job looks like it could be over. If he cannot manage he will have to go.

Sad as he is a nice guy but being the boss means being in control and at the moment he is not.

"Hey John - how did steering less Alonso fail to take Vettel out after he mounted his own wing with - no brakes and no grip - looked pretty close? "


I'm just shocked that the haters are not blaming Sen for crashing into Alonso. Maybe they would be if they did not have this other shiny object to distract them.

I am totally astonished that in all of this, no one of any credibility is asking why the race result should be determined by team management at 4/5 distance at only the second race of the year?

Stuff what MW or SV are feeling or thinking, what are the sports administrators thinking to allow this?

It should be the team managers apologising to the fans and the drivers for creating such a joke of a situation and the team managers should be facing punsihments from the sports gouverning body.

Just to clarify the stupidity of the situation, a multiple world champion (in his prime) is about to be "punished" for disobeying a radiculous, unsportsman like (boardering on "match fixing" if not match fixing) order and doing what hes paid to do...WIN?

...What is even more conserning, is that Lewis Hamilton can acknowledge the farce but yet Mark Weber chucks a tanti because Vettle didnt let him win.

If this is how Mark feels, I think the right decision would be to quit.

dave i think a lot of people dislike team orders and they used to be against rules. but teams cheated. ferrari most obvious with the alonso faster than you message. but other teams too. and everyone knew it was cheat. fangirls always say it ok tho if their team, say its always been part of sport or say it is exploit of rulebook and f1 is about who can read rules best. so then f1 said we cant stop teams cheating so will say it is legal. and pretend it all ok. maybe f1 need a few races like this to bring cries of public and remind fia that fans make sport, not bernie.

I really can't remember the last time a driver was suspended by his team for winning the race. Red Bull got its 1-2 finish and the most points went to their darling Vettel, who's the one with the most likely chance for the title. I'm sure Red Bull is secretly elated with the results.

My issue is less with the ignoring of team orders, and more with the issuing of them. Having said that, Webber was driving under the assumption that he was safe, which he wasn't.

Which all boils down to the teams not understanding or trusting the tires again.

Also just because Helmut and Horner and everyone else has publically made comments, doesn't mean their genuine or thats what they have said to Seb it person. They will have a PR team feeding them rubbish to say anyway.

Anyone remember Silverstone 2011, when Webber was denied the chance to fight for second, when massivly quicker in the closing laps?
