I thought there would be more fuss over the Merc team order, did it really matter that Nico got third? It's not Monaco, easy to pass...guess they didn't spend 20 million (a year basic) on him.

The Merc team order was as bad as the Red Bull one, guess Nico was looking at his post F1 career as a merc ambassador (remember this one).

re: "if racing is a team sport then the rules need to be changed"

if racing isn't a team sport, i'd sure as hell like to see seb pull into the pits, jump out of the seat, fuel up and re-tire his car in 3 seconds. i DARE HIM...!

They just need to ban team orders, get rid of pit to car radios, and fine the teams heavily for breach, in addition canceling any points gained and 1 race ban. Think of that in this instance, top 4 lose all points and cannot race in China, plus financial penalty to each team. Let everyone race....

the very reason Horner issued this order - he was afraid that Webber would rather put his teammate in the kitty litter than let him pass!
Vettel gained another VALUABLE 7 points by this move, since Alonso was out. Any team would put their money on their 3 time champion, not an 'also ran' like Webber.(who has never won ANY championship in his whole career, except being posterboy for the british media)
forget team orders, Vettel IS Redbull!

For all of you on this forum who reckon that Vettel is a hero for disobeying the team and robbing Webber of the win, and the only reason Vettel won is because this time Mark did as instructed, try this with your current boss and see how far you get - as much as we all hate team orders, because then in my book it is not a race anymore as it them becomes rigged, when the boss signs the paycheck you do as you are told, like it or not.

First, he says he's sorry for disobeying orders.

Now he says he is not sorry that he won by disobeying orders.

What a disingenuous distinction.

I would have liked him more if he just came out front in the beginning and said 'I am there to win and I am not sorry at all'. At least Mark would have taken that line.

Seb can be a real little worm at times, which is sad since I admire his driving talent.

Vettel still doesn't get it and he never will. The team concept doesn't suit him Maybe, he should go it alone, Then we'd get to see how far a team can go with only one car. lol
