" If any sport starts tolerating indiscipline and rewarding, never mind ignoring, breaches, then you might as well pack up and go home "

Every driver on every team has broken team orders at some point. Webber has broken team orders many times.

I know this is inconvenient for you single-issue Vettel-haters to admit, but its true all the same. So stop acting like this is some unprecedented action on Vettels part. Its business as usual in F1.

Im sorry but the rules dont state you cant breach team orders and if you do your in trouble, they actualy state that team orders are permissable.

Its one thing to say "change the rules if you dont agree with them" but you need to understand what the rule is first.

Hogwash - is this the highest level of autoracing or a synchronized swimming event? If the team wants to "control" the results then put remote control spark limiters in them and cut out the revs at will. This is a afront to the fans who want to see the best drivers and cars compete.

Let me say it again. Webber is a dirty trickster. I saw him intentionally cause an accident with Seb in Turkey in 2010 to show him who was boss. At Interlagos last year when the 2012 title came down to the wire Webber didn't help Seb out. In fact he stole points Seb may have needed. But it didn't work out for Webber. And about Alonso... it was almost every race last year, "pull over Flip, Ferdi wants to be in front." Or, "out of the way Flip, we're breaking your gearbox seal." "Ferdi wants to be on the clean side of the track.
Seb has learned from this behaviour. If you don't play dirty like the other boys, then they will have an unfair advantage.

@ Ptolemy - You are a biased and you're drunk !

Webber DID NOT cause the crash in Turkey for the LAST GOD DAMN TIME. Vettel turned across TOO EARLY.
The start at Brazil is a pathetic talking point.
Yeah Mark did not follow orders at Silverstone but it was not for a victory and after all the crap RB put Mark through and after Turkey and now this RB and Seb still owe Mark big time.

Bottom line is Seb:
1- Didn't follow team orders
2- Didn't turn his engine down
3- Deceitfully attacked when he knew he shouldn't
4- Lied about it
5- Made a pathetic apology not worth jack
6- Should have got a tooth knocked out
7- Tarnished his own name like Schumi
8- Stole a win
9- Caused an uproar in the sport
10- Showed his true colours which will never get him in the history books as a great no matter what he does.

Thats crap and spoken by a british for a british. Vettel is not there for convoi but he was hired to win races. People want to see and pay for racing and not processions. All team orders should be disallowed by penalty for the team anyway as it was in the past.

Christian Horner as team principle has to take back control.

If he does not take disciplinary action like suspending Vettle for 1 race how will anyone respect team orders and why should Mark toe the team line for the rest of the season.

This is the time for Christian Horner to show he can discipline and control his drivers.
