I have this feeling mark is going to come back swinging. He drives best when he's got something to prove. To redbull's credit, nobody in the team tried to defend vettel. If the race had finished as it should have, mark and seb would be on equal points rather than seb with 14 point lead over mark. Seb will never get back his credibility. There will always be people that remember this day no matter what he achieves. Good luck for the rest of the season mark. No one wants to see question your future over this cheap shot.

Less we forget how many times mark say he will not be assisting vettel and on how many races vhe nearly take out vettel mark is not a team player so vettel was right to do what he did to hell with team orders we break laws every day so whats the big deal red bull cause that on them selves it,s to earlly to be call orders just two races if the tyres are not what they want the team have a right to break orders and tell the FIA they are not using those tyres so we can get proper racing i remember alan prost driving on one set of tyres a whole race formula one loosing it status by turning off ppl .By the way where will webber go at that age with not even ten race wins sit down mark and race/

Has anyone considered that maybe Red Bull didn't want Vettel to race Webber because Webber cannot be trusted to race fairly? The way that he almost put Vettel into the pit wall should have attracted the attention of the stewards. You can bet that Schumacher would not have gotten away with a dodgy move like that.

mark. you could be right. it was right at the point when webber nearly put seb in the wall, that that horner said "this is silly". could he have been referring to the possible collision? and who was he referring to?

i think that more info will come out shortly. might stop all the speculation and some of the unfounded comments.

Webber quitting RBR or FI racing? That was certainly fishing for sympathy, I say Webber will be at RBR for as long as they will keep him no matter what and that includes being totally shaded by his team mate.

This incident might actually turn out to be the best thing that could have happened, for Webber. If it lights a fire under him to beat Vettel and "team orders" go out the window (as they should), we could be in for some great battles this season. I would love to see the gloves come off, personally.

And by the way, Richard, the quote from Horner was on Vettel's radio and it was, "This is silly, Seb...come on." He was admonishing Vettel. You guys cannot spin this into Webber bad, Vettel good...although you're doing your best.

@whizzz it is not a problem that vettel disobeyed but that he acted afterwards as if he regretted which I am sure he did not. Imo he just got scared of reaction. Small child this Sebastian
