F1 » F1 China 2013: I'd probably do same again, says Vettel


Sebastian Vettel: I think I'm the kind of guy that respects team decisions but on the other hand Mark is not the one that deserved it [the victory] at the time.

richard, you can't make a statement about EQUAL blame and then say 'but a little more Webbers fault' !!!!. Quite honestly it looked to me that SV was faster at that point , had a run at Webber thought he'd made the pass complete but hadn't and moved over too soon and as Webber said he wasn't going to make it easy, I'm more of the view that it was more SV at fault myself, I have to say but heyho it's only my view

senna. i said POSSIBLY. that was due to the fact that vettel probably took it as a normal pass, expecting to be left room. ( under current rules, he would have to be left room!) whereas webber knowing that there was a car there, took a conscious decision to close the door

@ Richard and Senna
Yes it's a hard call, but Senna if your behind a driver it's your responsibility not to hit the car in front of you.
I know SV was barely in front of Webber, but he was in front and not it's Webbers responsibility to make sure he doesn't hit, that said SV did move over a little to quickly I'm sure being that close to the grass and the fact they were way off line for the next braking point may have played a part in his hast to more over to soon and to quickly, that's why I see that as a racing incident with equal blame, I can't fault Webber for making it hard, and I can't fault Vettel for trying to get by, you see as he makes the first move to the right Webber moved right, then as Vettel makes the passing move on the left Webber pushes him to the edge - I would have done the same, but once Vettel was in front I would have started moving back to the racing line. I don't see Webber doing that.

The kid sucker punch his team mate against team orders design to get both of them home with max points When frickin drivers start paying for running the team then they can blow off their Boss. Sayin Webber didn't deserve it is such a chicken s*** move. As if attacking your unsuspecting team mate and trashing your team principal authority makes you more deserving. Punk move made by a ounk. It will come back haunt him and Helmut.
