F1 » Villeneuve: Vettel's actions deliberate and stupid


Jacques Villeneuve: The team give you the contract and pay and so you do what they want you to do. It is very simple. Ignoring is just plain wrong.

Whatever you think of JV, he has experienced this sort of thing first hand with his father. If you recall that race in 1982, none of the foca teams were there, the Ferraris were a long way in the lead, They were told to slow and hold position. When DP passed, GV in his innocense thought he was putting on a show for the crowd. GV re- passed slowed down again and DP overtook again. It was too late after that and we now all know the consequences. When DP won his next race, he dedicated it to GV and Keke Rosberg said, if it wasn't for that ####### GV would still be here. It loooks like Webber is getting the same sort of support from other drivers as GV did back then.

I did/do not always agree with JV's on track attitude (like what he did to Danica Patrick last year and then just blowing it off afterwards).

But I have a ton of respect for his opinion about things that he is not directly involved with.

He is straight up, blunt and says it like it is...and is often right (imo).

And he is uniquely qualified to judge this situation (due to what happened to his Dad).

If he says Vettel was wrong - that is good enough for me.

Throw in Button saying basically the same thing - and there is no doubt in my mind that Vettel goofed.

I did a little digging and found that of all the incidence of drivers violating team orders in F1, only one is being associated with an injury or death, and that by the son of the driver who was lost. Statistically, there is less than 1% correlation between violation of team orders and the death of a team mate. It appears Weber is safe, assuming he can keep his powder dry.

“It is easy to make excuses after the even,” JV told Auto Bild. “In the end, ultimately he has got the win and the points. Mark has got nothing. It was a deliberate decision by Vettel.

“The team give you the contract and pay and so you do what they want you to do. It is very simple.

Theres nothing else to say, Elclestons talking out of his a...e thats not what winners do it's waht cheats do. !!
