What everyone has forgotten to mention is that Vettel lied through his back teeth, ever to the Team Principal, Horner. If you obviously lied to your 'big boss' about taking advantage of another employee for your own obvious benefit having been told otherwise, what would his reaction be?

no one is calling for Webber to be suspended for trying to put Vettel into the pit wall............

Schumacher got crucified for doing it to Massa a couple of years ago.

If anything, if would have to happen to from the inside of the team.... no one is going to suspend Vettel...... at worst, they will change out a transmission or something and move Vettel back into the grid come race day April 13...

Complete waste of time! If obeying teams orders means we have to watch the last twelve laps of every race with the first four cars 'holding station' then I, for one, don't want to watch.
If they need team orders to finish the race then knock 15 laps off and let them race to the end.

I think Webber is really only pissed because he was being and has been the better team player and he has gotten the screw one too many times. I wouldnt be surprised if Webber was told to back off at the end.

F1 needs refueling and better tires, if the fans really want to see 'equality' just introduce weight penalties. I would rather watch sprint races at the limit than team sanctioned tire endurance races.

What a load of rubbish most people are saying on here. The fact remains that Webber turned down his engine on team orders to protect the tyres. If he had continued to go flat out Vettel on this ocassion would have been unlikely to get past. It was only because Webber had eased off was Vettel able to get past so easily. If Webber had then turned his engine back up and raced back at Vettel then in all liklihood both Red Bulls tyres would have been burnt out and they would not have finished 1 - 2. So in all respects Webber on this ocassion played the team game - he even gave Vettel space which would not have been the case if it had been any other team rather than risk taking both of them out of the race. Vettel is the only villain - even trying to lie his way out of it. He does need a come uppance and if it is not from the team we could see a Webber torpedo at some point during the season. Yes he is a great driver (and I am not particularly a fan of Webber) but if the teams have to manage

I can only LOL at this! LOL LOL LOL LOL

Then MW should've watched the last races of 2012 at home, cause he clearly tried to prevent Seb from winning. Isn't it working against the team?
