well done Vettel. do your job and let the chips fall where they may. If anyone wants to nurse their cars they should do it in the pits not on the track. you race with what you are given if someone doesn't know how to make their car last thru the stretch that their problem.

I wouldn't have a problem with it if he actually raced mark and ignored the multi21. They both followed the instruction until seb sucker-punched mark by going flat out on his in lap and out lap. If you're going to race and ignore the call, race! This was just desperate. Well done seb, amazing win.

I have to admit, I gained a lot of respect for Lewis after his podium and he almost seemed ashamed to have gotten 3rd with team orders. Funny how Webber doesn't feel the same way.

Guess winners want to win at all costs and not by way of team orders. I don't think Seb should apologize. If Webber turned his car down, he could have turned it back up. Didn't look like he just let Seb past any ways. He raced, he just lost. Team orders suck. I hate that they're allowed.

This is absurdity at its best, a first class Red Bull F1 racing team farce, I say Red Bull (the team) because that is where it all belongs, and the protagonists inside the Red Bull team responsible for this farce are (in chronological order) the owner, the advisor, the team principal, and both drivers.
Regardless of likes and dislikes of team orders, individual driver or team support, the way RBR as a team is managed is a joke/farce.

sunny. other sites are reporting that didi was extremely upset at the decision for team orders, as was marko. instructions have been given to horner, that there are to be NO team orders any more.

Here's hoping Webber decides not to listen to pit wall when it comes to whether or not he should race Vettel, for the rest of the season. Race him, Mark...every time.
