Regardless of whether Vettel was right or not - well he recognised he wasn't - his responsibility lies with his team and certainly not with the public even if everybody has their opinion on the matter.

This is an internal Red bull affair. I don't see on what grounds Seb should apologise to the fans there. even for the FIA, there hasn't been a breach of the rules.

I was surprised to see Vettel issuing a public apology to team, he could have done it in private. Mark didnt help him in Brazil last year when Seb needed a wingman badly (Kimi did that job by not crashing into Seb in lap 1) , so it is great to see Seb hunt down Mark. Mark is a sore loser and that is why his team mate has 3 world championships. Apology to Fans - Big no. Folks who retire should also retire from making comments. The classy ones - Schumacher, Hakkinen etc dont make any comments on such incidents. Maybe they have better things to do. Why not others do the same.

sorry Freud, i try again...

you support a rider because he win?
or you want a rider win because you are with him?

you dont mind support a rider who win, but at the same time do cheats? (i dont speak about Vett, i mean Schum...) dont mind if he is one of fastest and betters of history

so simple, no objetive/subjetive, no double sens, no hipocrite, no jam, no other way to take, no joke, no "old bean" whatever, non thief... i hate that...

georges. no, they are (sadly) NOT illegal.

ferdi. yes, that is what continually puzzles me. the two cars could not post similar times, if one car was turned down, and the other not.
so...either both drivers were racing with turned down mode, OR neither driver was turned down. i tend to believe that neither vettel or webber had turned down their engines, so it was really a true race.

So...what was Seb apologising for???

If richard is right, why did CH describe Seb's actions on the track as silly and why did his race engineer say he had some explaining to do??

Something just does not fit!

You're all trying to fit a square peg into a round hole! Did Christian Horner and Rocky suddenly decide at the end of the race that they hated "racing"??

Did Helmut Marko suddenly decide that he hates his boy Vettel racing for victories? Of course not! But WHY did he criticise Seb on television as the race was finishing?

Answer the question!

@ richard,
i tend to agree with you on this one, webber put in some good lap on tyres that had done an extra lap and were harder.
lm also not sure that 'any' member of the red bull management have been openly critical of vettel since malaysia, i feel most of the apolagising has been because their mismanagement has been made public
