He couldn't actually see that. RBR pitted Vettel before Webber and fitted softs on his car. Vettel made up the 4 second gap out of Webber's sight. Then RBR fitted the hard tyres to Webber's car, so with little over 10 laps to go he was on the wrong tyres to attack. I think RBR's role is a little dubious, they may have ordered the no attacking rule but if you look at what they did other than that they did everything they could to get Vettel close to Webber and on tyres fit to attack.

Mark yes you are right and Vettel has never needed Webber's help, its just that we know Vettel is a great champion. He should have listened to team orders I don't agree with orders , but its allowed now.

Oh please! Apologize to fans??? This is the best, most talked-about aftermath of a race since Alonso balked Hamilton in the pits! Half the fun of watching sport is talking about it in the pub afterwards, hence there should be no apologies and no goal-line technology in football either!

Tell Vettel to save his breath. Everyone knows that he won't mean whatever he says. His actions and intent were clear to all. Just ask Webber.

Buck up and move on folks ...

Man, Watson is really milking this dead solder for all its worth, isn't he? The old man needs to take his pills and a nap, then get off this topic. It's making him look like a real clown.

Germany's Sport Bild , "Team orders won't be given by us anymore," says Helmut Marko .

If followed through, Webber can now make Vettel suffer.
Brat medicine.

Why should he do that for or to the fans? fan should embrace his action, i think the teams should be sanctioned here for bring the spot in a bad light.
now i dont know if peepz missed it but admiting by the teams that after the last pitstop there is no racing in general and they are more focused on finishing in the posistions they are at the moment of that last pitstop and so by defenitions no letting there racers race is a farce....Red bull and Merc should be fined 50 milion each for doing so... Vettel did what he had to do if its not for himself its for the fans...
