Good idea Tom. Lets let Webber and Alonso pair up at Ferrari. Alonso and DeMontezemolo would turn him into a true punk. Then he'd have something to whine about.
Seb has turned into a true killer! The whole field should now be aware that he IS NOT playing any more political games. They have 10 more years to feel the wrath of the young german stud.

When it is all said and done, two wrongs don't make a right and even though Mark was not happy to be passed by Vettel trying to push him into the pit wall at 200 mph was not the way to handle it.

Mark is desperate to win a title before he retires and probably saw the win as a step in that direction. Taking that win away has effectively denied him that last chance.

Perhaps if he hadn't been so hard-headed in the past Vettel may have been more accommodating - who knows?

SV won fair IN SPITE of his team sponsor and management. Power and respect to him.

If MW could have won, he would have, orders or not.

As a proud Aussie, Im getting fed up with our sports stars acting like whinging little girls when things dont go their way. Shut up and get even on the track (if you can).

Bring back the days of Pat Cash, Duncan Armstrong, the Kathy Freedman who simply stuck it up them where it counted.

Enough of the cry baby crap, quit or race hard, either way, shut up!

PS...Red Bull should be worried about the brand now!

Do you really need to buy the product if you only intend going along at 50%...dont need wings for that...

Martin I have always had great respect for you and your opinions,even routed for you when you were driving.
However you summed it all up in your last pargraph you could have saved all that ink :-) If as you say Webber was the best on the day he could could have kept Vettle behind him, the fact is Vettle is quicker. Just as Rosberg was quicker than Hamilton but I guess Hamilton IS the blue eyed boy at Merc and he was quickly loosing that persona at Maclaren.
Let the drivers race until it becomes close at the end of the season,then use team orders if it is a question of winning the title be it driver or team. and the best driver will win and we will all be able to enjoy what should be a very competative sport.

Is Brundle for real - the 2 great drivers!!! He's referring to Webber as great .. really so then what's Lewis or Fernando, Kimi? As if Brundel knows what a Multi 21 actually means. From engine mapping to tires - Serb is a 3 times WORLD Champion that alone should credit him and his ability. S T UF F Webber and his sulk face podium! Wasn't this the same 'NICE GUY' that decided team orders are a no in Germany 2012... loved the 'show your team mate the wall' move by Webber that was very classy and clean! Get on with the RACING like the Champion did! leave the team
orders!

When I watched this race a thougt was going throug me: Whould Ayrton Senna have listened to these team orders? I want to see a race and I don't want to listen to discussions via team-radio.
The fastest driver should win, it is the beginning of the season, so there is no reason to hold someone back.
a F1 driver must be an egomaniac, otherwise the results will never come. Otherwise I have to watch football etc, if I want Teamplayers
