I think Briatore is right on this one. I believe that in the next few races we will see a bitter rivalry between Vettel and Webber. And if we will have a situation similar to last year in Brazil I do think that Webber will do anything for impeding Vettel winning the title again. I don't think that Vettel is a villain for what he did but I do think that he needs to go to Ferrari next year alongside Alonso in order to learn how to respect the others. Alonso's experience to McLaren in 2007 was very valuable to make him understand that no driver stands before the team, so Vettel needs to learn this as well, and maybe Ferrari and Alonso are the right people to teach him a few things about team work.

Jez, we're a fickle bunch ... Brawn was slated to hell and back, and still is, and now he's better than Horner, the most recent double drivers and constructors champions? ... There is no pleasing some, but I will say this. Horner is probably needed more by the sport than any other team principal.

Horner is a huge advocate of getting the fans closer to the sport, constantly demonstrated by his willingness to provide interview after interview, also allowing his team the time to do this over a hectic busy race weekend.

No matter what we think, F1 needs CH, I say let the dust settle and then lets evaluate whatever responce that comes from him to resolve or redress the balance within the team.

it's just Briatore's ego blowing off. He's been ignored for some time now and he can't stand not being at center stage. F1 is all about egos and drivers will always try for a one up. Just look back to Senna & Prost.

It will take Newey sometime to find a quick driver and good developer as Seb. Don't you remember the team started winning when Seb joined them?

So RB 'manage' the disobeying of team orders behind closed doors. Err, each time? Not just once? Some management.
Let ALL the drivers race and forget team orders! Never in a million years will that happen, so lots of upset drivers In the future, I reckon.
