Vettel is just a little Schumacher Jnr ruthless little driver who only cares about winning and nothing else. After he said Sunday he didnt care what people thought i hope he gets booed at all events from now on. Not one for the fans not a team player not very honest not a very nice German.

Brundle is one to talk. He was the first person to jump ship when SkySports took over most of the F1 UK broadcasting rights. Brundle sure did not seem to have much loyalty to his teammates at the BCC. Martin, you left the BBC for SkySports because you thougt it was in YOUR best interests, just like Vettle took the lead in the race because it was in his best interests. Kettle, Pot, Black ???

Without doubt SV is a talented driver, but recent events suggest, a pretty underhand individual.

The multi21 call quite clearly is an agreed one, And SV in ignoring it demonstrates his disrespect for the the team and his teammate.

Effectively, a truce was called and SV choose to punch his teammate in the back of the head.

"Team orders are ruining F1."

No, individualism and selfishness is ruining F1. This is a team sport. Imagine Wayne Rooney playing by himself, he'll have no team after Sir Alex kicks him out in a second. Vettel is lucky he is in a very good TEAM. Even him and Helmut Marko are a TEAM within a team. By himself he will get nowhere especially with his attitude. He wont even win anything let alone podium without his TEAMs' car. This is a teamsport and they are racing for their teams. It even becomes more interesting, more intellectual, cos team tactics come into play. If you want to watch no holds barred racing, go watch monster trucks and drink your belly gut big.

You people are such drama queens. Emotionally over-wrought drama queens.

Neither Webber not Vettel stuck to the truce. Webber pitted early to try to undercut Vettel who in turn raced his teammate hard and fair. Webber lost on the racetrack. That's all.

Not only should Red Bull sanction their driver - a 1 race suspension being the LEAST that should be applied - It should be ENFORCED in the regulations.

Now that team orders are a legitimate part of the rule book, a clear failure to comply with team orders should be considered as serious a transgression as failing to comply with a marshall or other race official.

When team orders were not legal, then political games could be played, but not any more.

Furthermore, the governing body has to take some blame for creating regulations which have resulted in teams telling their drivers to stop racing in order to preserve components on the car, not for the race, but for the races to come. Having created the situation where this could happen, they must now step up and see that the rules they have created are followed, or scrap those rules.
