F1racer,

Did not know you were in webbers' car during that race, you must be really small. Anyway, do you honestly believe Webber hadn't turned up his engine at that point? He knew Vettel was coming, he even tried to push him into a big piece of concrete....they both played it hard, Seb won, deal with it!
And i repeat, all you hypocrits would have been cheering if it would have been the other way round!!!

f1racer. sorry, i put a gap between f1 and racer, just to match the gap in your racing knowledge. but gweed is correct. i was under the mistaken impression that you did actually approve of RACING, which is exactly what vettel did, to the chagrin of some.
there are some photos of vettel alongside webber, and seb was only inches from the pit wall. quite a brave move really.
i have said it several times, only the telemetry will show watch mode webbers engine was in, but if the two cars were in differing modes, as claimed by some, webber could NOT have fought with vettel, but he DID.

Bye bye Bernie, the bomb is ticking... and we won't have to listen to your stupid crap much longer. Of course you'd do the dishonorable thing, that is what you've always done.

Wonder why Gilles Villieneuve will always be revered more than Schumacher in Italy. It's because he had honor.. see Monza 78 for an example

it was all one sided as soon as webber turned down his engine , at the very least they should have told webber to fire up his engine and take the battle to him , they could also have asked vettel to give back the place and obey the preserve car order.

Richard, sorry for this post because you obviously love posting your uninformed opinions on here and by the sounds of it would prefer if everyone else aprt from Vettel had no drs or some other disadvntage, maybe that wouls suit you, the german could run rings around everyone then, great, top racing.

Back to the point, i have a friend who works in the garage and Webbers car WAS turned down, if you think what went on was classed as "fight" you really need to watch more racing.

Your support blind support is impressive but dont try twisting truths without any facts. Thats cheating....oh wait!!

Looking at info I can find here:
www.f1fanatic.co.uk 2013/03/24/2013-malaysian-grand-prix-lap-charts/
When Seb pitted for the last time he suddenly gained 15 seconds on Mark on his out lap. Do you believe Mark was suddenly 15 seconds slower per lap? Add to this a surprise factor and cooler tires and you have an answer. If Mark would not slow down and continue Seb could possibly never catch up.

Hmmm. F1 isn't making its self look good over this situation. Everyone jumping on the band wagon.

Bottom line is this. Your Boss tells you not to do it and you do it. You should expect to get a bolloxing. End off.
