All this controversy has blown up if I understood Marks comment at the end of the race was that Seb wanted to get his 21st race victory that race and not wait for another day.And if Seb is up for the drivers title at the end of the year, will he and Mr Marko truly learn the meaning of , Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold, as Mark could really teaching them the meaning of the saying if they are under any illusions.

@ Mark - 100% agree, when has Mark ever done anything but race for himself?? All the notion from the Weber fans that he should now race for himself and "get even" on the track is silly.
I am not a fan of Vettel and think he is a primadonna, but hehas nothing to fear from Mark on the track. He is faster than him - simple as. Other than t-bone him there is not a whole lot he can do to hurt Vettel that he has not already done.

vettel RACES webber. so what? isnt that what he is paid to do?
to those who say that marks answer is at the ensuing races...well, i quite agree......but mark will sure have to lift his game and stop relying on ettel being hobbled, to get the odd win. i want to see BOTH drivers racing to win.
as to those saying that mark should "get vettel back", i hope that you are not advocating by taking him out etc. that sort of payback has nothing to do with f1. the only "payback is to beat him fairly on track.

and this is not all one sided, where were the critics when webber refused to accede to team orders, or when he made things difficult for vettel?

interestingly, it is being reported that mark is not being offered a contract for 2014. early days yet, i know, but for such comments to be reliably reported already..........

so mark..show us if you are REALLY a match for seb ( i wont hold my breath!)

Webber is sometimes, but not often for various reasons, a match for Vettel. When he does get it hooked up, he is very quick (e.g. Germany 2009). Unfortunately it is not very often- he is inconsistent, and- let's be honest- he is crap at starting, so he spends a lot of time and energy passing people who started behind him.

But I will concede that he has won 9 GP, and all with Vettel as his team mate (yes, I know, Vettel has won 26 at RBR with Webber as his team mate).

Richard- try:
1. Disobeying your team (for his own good)
2. "Racing" with his teammate who was on a cruising mode.
3. Lying about it after the race.

Had it been Hamilton...we all know how different...
Ok, so you really like Vettel. That's great. I think he is an amazing driver as well. But please, no bias...

uin... dont start all that again.
how do you know that webber had turned down his engine
how do you think that webber was able to repel vettel, with a turned down engine
how do you know that vettel was not running the same map, after all, he didnt pull away.
do you believe that webber was right to break team orders( last year), but wrong for vettel to do the same?

what i said is correct, if webber wants to beat vettel, all he has to do is RACE without relying on team "orders" to get a win.

i am encouraging racing, or do you not want to see such a thing?

Let's discuss turning engine down:
5 laps before last pitstop Webber is faster .6 than Vettel, 4 laps till piststop Vettel faster for .7 than Mark .3 than Vettel .4 sec.
Before Vettel went to pit difference is 3.1 sec, vettel drives fastest lap 1.40". Webber has crappy middle section and has lap time around 1.42"
difference is 21 sec. Webber goes to pit 20.7" goes out and got .3 in-front of Vettel, then they raced for 2 laps.
My question is when Webber turned down his engine?
