They should ban Redbull racing for giving teamorders and manipulating races!
Racing is about the guy that is faster then the rest and be first true the finish,are we all dumb now that we dont now what racing is about????Webber is a cry baby who does not deserve's to be in F1 at all!!Are you such a loser that the only way you can win is by manipulation of the race??Look in the mirror Webber are you a man or a baby!!

Christian Horner is a weak team leader, thinks he needs Seb more than Seb needs RBR. There are a number of drivers that will win in that car, Alonso , Nico, Lewis, Massa, Kimi and even some of the younger guys. Adrian Newey is the 80% winning factor here. Team orders irrespective whether you agree or not, world champion or not, must be obeyed. Finish! Seb apologized so admits wrongdoing, how are you going to punish him Mr. Horner? By the way I am a Seb fan but no one is bigger than the sport, don't tarnish it more than it has been.

What a huge overreaction. Racers want to race, what a shocking discovery! Nothing bad happened, both cars finished, Vettel got more points - which is a plus for RBR and most importantly - spectators were thrilled. So what's the big deal??? It's just a sport anyway...

Well Jimmy , judging by the world wide reaction , not all spectators are thrilled! I think team orders are turning it into a business more than a sport though.

I only remember other time that vettel ignore the pit info

He had the p1 and was leading the race with a big gap.
He was told repeatedly to maintain.
But he went for "Fast race lap anyway

Those on the pit wall hung their heads like they did Sunday

A full on race suspension might be a bit harsh (even if personally i wouldn't mind), but the team could give him a grid penalty by just keeping him from going out in 2nd or 3rd qualifying. Obviously he will still have a chance of winning, but at least the team will let him know who's calling the shots here.

Would you ban Vettel and put Buemi in the car for the next race? How many points is he going to get? This makes no business sense.

A company man never wins championships, and Webber knows better than that.

re: "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."

and that's when it all goes "pear shaped"... and bernie/the FIA will be forced to acknowledge there's a major flaw in the way the championship is structured. same goes for the beggars on bike side.
