No it's not sensible of Bernie. And no Vettel did not 'race' Webber. Mark was ordered to turn his engine down and so lost his 4 sec. lead over Vettel. Webber was in fuel/tyre saving mode when Vettel attacked. Vettel knew this, so that is not racing and is underhand. The cars should not be in fuel/tyre saving mode, the regulations need to ban this and then the teams would be able to go for it, but would need to stop for an extra set of tyres, so more chance of action all round. Come on FIA show some backbone!!!

Please remember your words when Webber applies some pressure back on Seb.

Don't forget Redbull have said he is the Number 2 driver and his objective is the give Seb the best chance to win the championship. Remember the from wing incident.

So don't think for a minute the Seb won those championship on his own talent alone. If you do then why do they need a second driver...?

re: "Ecclestone slams Red Bull for driver feud"

this is how the headline should read...

"S1 slams Ecclestone for Red Bull driver feud"

sorry bern, nice try. old european proverb... "the fish stinks from the head down." you're the man in charge that means YOU are responsible. not that it's a federal offense, but you've allowed a system to persist that has LONG been at odds with itself.

Everyone seems to be forgetting, Weber slowed down because of his team orders. He would have been able to maintain a 4 second gap if he had understood that he was still racing!
Vetel took advantage when Weber thought it was all decided!

re: "Ecclestone however has taken a different view on the incident, arguing that the team shouldn't have imposed orders on the pair in the first place given Malaysia was only the second race of the year"

redbull's 3 consecutive championships say different.

I tend to agree with him. RB have been in this situation before. Maybe they don't have the management experience to deal with situation likes this. Its not the first time. Its quite clear what Webber needs to do. He's racing for his own future as well. No quarter given.

re: "I don't think there should be team orders but the teams need both cars to finish so they can finish as high up in the constructors championship as possible because that means a larger share of the money at the end of the season."

no sitting the fence, which is it...?
