......sometimes the people on the pit-wall have a better take on the 'grand scheme of things' than the drivers, who are in the thick of battle out on track. All sides need to trust each other, and trust was badly damaged at Sepang and which Seb is now working hard to repair!

Vettel said he messed up and he is apologising to Mark and the team. Should we believe him or not?

If we should, then that means he did something wrong on Sunday and your continued defence of him is pointless.

If we shouldn't, then that means he is a pathological liar, given the first lie he told the press about being ignorant of the team order.

You can't have it both ways, mate.

chris. yes, vettel admits he messed up and apologies for that. but you have to read all the comments coming from red bull. no actual order was radioed to him. only an order to turn down engine, via a display on dash. he may or may not have seen that. we dont know if he saw it or not, but the fact that he did not interpret it as staying behind, could be the reason that he realises he messed up. from some pundits comments, it was only when webber said 21 to him, that he realised his mistake.

whatever the real truth is, it does not take from the fact that there was no reason for team orders of any sort, or that when webber would not accede to them last year, there was no witchhunt.
if rbr decide to punish him, that is there perogative, but as you may be aware, even webber has said that there was some ambiguity.

richard, I think chris' is point that he lied when interviewed and then backtracked on it saying he knew he wasn't meant to overtake Mark, he got the call and ignored it, Vettel's own words.
It can't be condoned or defended in any way.
If its the case that Vettel's lying is acceptable then surely it was ok for Hamilton with his lying.

"Autosport journalist Mark Hughes believes that in the middle of the race - when we had the "Mark's too slow" outburst - that Webber was trying to back Seb up into the two following Mercedes, the cause of the two Red Bulls' 2010 crash in Turkey." From Sky

Finally, some professional is making sense and saw what many of us have seen, that the fuming Sebastian with the memory of an elephant decides to stick it to Mark. What a sly and whinny loser this Mark Webber is.

No need to say sorry to them Seb, at the end of the season if you can be champ again, they will thank you for their big fat bonus they get. Fourth time in a row!!!

SV is a a quandry - the team are giving him pressure to make amends and he is still an out and out racer!

Roll on China can't wait, just hope the gloves are off and all team orders go in the Bin!

"it is possible that seb might have to park his car for half a minute, to allow webber to catch up and "earn" a win!"
Richard, Its comments like that which is why people accuse you of being a vettel fanboy
