@ Bernie Ecclestone. Hey old timer if you go back through F1 history, it is people like you that create issues. Redbull is a racing team, STAY OUT OF IT. You are the same sort of fool (I don't recall his name) that created hell for F1 and Ayrton Senna in days gone by.

Whose wise idea was it to take racing and turn it into a Soap Opera? Let the drivers race. That's their job. If you want to take part in an economy run, there are many events all over the world.

Seeing as people want to compare issues in sport. Let's have a look at rugby: the scrum in particular. Which genius came up with the revision from last year to the current CROUCH TOUCH SET? This was supposed to make it safer. All I see is more collapsed scrums. There is an easier way to set the scrum and put everyone on equal footing.

There is one question that we all miss. Why are we feeling sorry for Webber? He has achieved precious little during his time in F1 but has had the same equipment as Vettel for the last few year

If Vettel wants to race, let him. If he breaks the car, gearbox, tyres or anything else, only he looses.

Hamilton is being spoon fed again!!!!!

simon. are you referring to balestrere? if so, he had nothing to do with the teams, but was part of fia, in the job that todt is currently in.

but there is a point...i know that no rules have been broken by a team or a driver, but it would be nice to hear fia take on the issue.

simon oyu said if vettel wants to race let him race. if he breaks car only he loses. not really true.we dont really know how much time he gain from webber slowing down because of following team order. if webber continue at full rate to match vettel then what if both cars run out of gas or collide or gearbox wear affects him in later race. so if webber follows team order he lhurts, and if he races he might also hurt. because vettel ignore team when it suits him. and its not just webber. hundreds of people work on that car. it is not vettels own car. it belongs to team. they all hurt if drivers throw away top two finish.

The silly restrictive rules have turned F1 into a farce. Bad tyres, No refuelling, No DRS sometimes, No bad language etc... Let these teams & drivers do WHATEVER they wish and it'll become more entertaining and worth our money. Boxers aren't told "No upper cuts", Football players tag at each others shirts and even use wrestling 'holds' and they just get a yellow card. F1 has become a sport for the 'sissies' and we're denied individual drivers prowess. Shut up all of you officials, you are to blame for all this overtaking fuss.
