i remembered the 05 US gp where we had three sets of team mates racing each other, rubens barrichello was pretty suprised that schuey was racing him when he exited the pits after his final stop, massa fans/alonso haters were even more indignant when alonso passed massa on the pit entry road. webber should know that vettel is going to attempt to take any oppertunity (that presents itself) , webber quite possibly operates to the same (racing) principles , had nico rosberg managed to make his pasaing attempts on lewis hamilton stick in malaysia stick, im certain ross brawn wouldnt have told him to give the place back.

I respect Seb for being honest. Yes he is arrogant, yes he is overrated as he has been driving the best cars for nearly half of a decade now, but i would not wont this young talent to change, he is ruthless clinical and a champion and until we see him up against a driver of equal standard in the same car he will continue to guide the Newey machines to success.

We should not be to harsh on Vettel for speaking his mind only thing that disappointed me is his folly apology to Mark and the team. What i'm not surprised about is the hypocrites on hear who slated Hammi in 2011 for speaking his mind but are now defending Seb for doing the same thing and we all know who is the biggest culprit on here for double standards when it comes to Vettel.

Webber "deserved" the win in Malaysia in the same sense that Schumacher "deserved" to win the 2002 Austrian GP.

Webber was only ahead when he was because Red Bull were ordering Vettel to stay behind Mark for the previous twenty laps. If would have been a travesty if the slower driver had been given a win purely by team orders, which is the only way Webber could possible have won that race.

"The only reason Vettel caught Mark was because Mark was obeying team instructions."

The technical term for that is a "steaming crock". The only reason Webber was ahead was because Vettel spent the preceding twenty laps obeying team orders to stay behind, not because of Mark's non-existent racing prowess.

"It is clear to all that Seb sucker-punched Mark."

It is clear to the Vettel haters that they hate Vettel. That is all that is clear t them.

Webber did his fastest lap of the race while fighting Vettel for the lead. That's a pretty good trick for a driver who was supposedly 'sucker-punched" and "had his engine turned down".

The next time Webber is struggling in a race - and I'm sure that time won't be far off - perhaps RB should tell him "turn your engine down" as that somehow results in his going faster.

Let's all pretend that a gang of chimps clicking thumbs up and thumbs down buttons tells us something useful.
