Every racing fan hates team orders. So why on earth should he apologise to the fans?

It is the teams that should apologise to the fans when they apply team orders - especially in the first race of the season where nothing at all is critical in the standings.

So you guys would claim you caught a six in cricket even with your foot over the boundary if it meant winning the match? Victory has to have honour. If you win dishonestly and still sleep comfortably at night then you are to be pitied. I like the Seb and think he will make a statemeant of either apology or explanation. I also think that if an opportunity arises this season, he will deliberately allow Mark to overtake in order to make amends.

It was a dog act of Vettel to pass Webber when Mark had already backed off due to team orders, but none of it would matter if team orders were properly banned. Coded messages like multi 21 should be banned, of a team looks like they have told a driver not to race for the win they should be fined, and drivers should be told that that have to race for the best possible position that can every race or risk a race ban as well. Then all this crap would go away

Do as the Team asks, simple. Good working relationship is essential. Cheated victory has no honour, bringing the sporting entertainment that is Formula1 into disrepute is NOTHING to hold your head up high for... Shame.

I agree, I was a huge fan of Vettel, but now I have lost a lot of respect for him. I have read some other comments and I am not certain that you can call what Vettal was doing as racing. I call it cheating to agree to team orders and then pass Webber after he slows down. How can that be racing? Watching the race Webber was much faster then Vettel and would not have passed him. The past years, Webber has respected the team and has helped Vettel in his quests to win world championships, but the one time the team asks Vettel he disobeys. All he did was prove to us that he will go to any length to win. What a shame...
The team must disallow Vettel to race in the next race. Vettel has to be taught a lesson. He also has to apologize to everyone.

Doesn't matter what Vettel says now, it's done & dusted. F1 is now the worlds most exclusive and expensive trackday. Team orders should be canned until one team mate maintains a significant point advantage over the other later in the season. Bring back Ayrton and the 1980s - that was real racing. Moto GP shows how it should be done.
