@richard,

How many times in the past has Christian Horner ever got on the radio to tell Seb to stop being silly, while racing for a victory??

How many times has Rocky his engineer ever told him as he crossed the finish line: " well done for winning the race, but you will have some explaining to do"

All the facts are there for all to see, but you are intent on ignoring them. Maybe you know a lot more about the situation than Horner and Rocky? Even Helmut Marko said Seb was wrong, when he was interviewed as the race finished...

I don't know how anyone can compare this to Hamilton's lie. Hamilton lied to the stewards to falsely have another driver punished. Since when is telling a porky to the press a surprise?

When all is said and done, consider this. Vettel is a great race car driver. Red Bull have brought him up through the ranks, seeing his potential, and giving him their best support in order for him to do that. The team, and Mark as well, have backed him even when he was wrong before, and continued supporting him. When it came down to it in Malaysia, he put himself out in front of all other considerations, and ignored All of his other team members. If Mark had finished in front, the team would still have the same points, and they would both be in a Tie for first place. Instead, by going on his own, the team Did Not get the best result they could have. He understood this too late, and when he did think about what he cost the team, HE felt the need to apologise in person to everyone. It is over now, and I doubt it will ever happen again, and just may have shown him that he is representing the whole team on the track and not just himself. I am very sure that moment came as he stood on the

I am very sure that moment came as he stood on the the car and turned to the fence to give the famous "One Finger" salute to his happy pit crew gathered there to celebrate, and no-one was there in Red Bull blue that made the point to him. Mark's reference to "Code 21" just confirmed his fears, as you can see on his face. It just proves the point of his immaturity as a team player, but there might be hope for the future. Bring on the next race!

Your reply to me was shameful. To bring Hamilton being told to lie in a Vettel lying thread just made you an an official FANBOY. Even Taipan would agree.

If we're bringing up the most notorious f1 lies why not bring up Alonso lying in Hungary '07 when he prevented his teammate from outqualifying him. Or the worst lie ever told in f1 - "This is the best car we've ever made!" - Jenson Button.

Sorry, Richard I can never look at your comments the same. You have just crossed over into fanboyism.

phil. i see that you lack a sense of humour!

wacky. oh for goodness sake...trying to understand an incident does not make one a fanboy! neither does defending a driver from the vitriol from posters who are jumping on a driver for his nationality.
i get info from some inside sources, and sometimes things are not quite clearcut. i defend others on accasions, such as alonso, and if you read other threads, even jv, and have also defended lulu. doesnt make me a fanboy. but i never attack drivers or other posters....now THAT is the sign of a fanboy.
a forum is for debate about f1, but some seem to get a kick out of just abusing others

My money next race is that Seb buries Mark's nuts in the ground. All the sorry's he is having to produce is only ticking him off inside. Can't wait ....
