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.

@ John - reeeelllllaaaaxxxxx... It's only a sport and a forum full of different opinions. None of it matters. The world will still be rotating in the morning. Not worth blowing a gasket over. xx

I think Seb has had enough of Mark and wants him gone at the end of the season. That is why he is stoking the flames of this dispute. Seb probably wants to be the official #1 at the team the way Schumi was and Alonso is at Ferrari. No more of this equal (or even pseudo equal) BS.

Frankly, the damage is already done. Whether Seb is contrite or belligerent now will make no difference to Mark. Mark is NOT going to help Seb at all for the rest of the year. So why bother faking contrition. Seb did not make a mistake or mishear something. He did exactly what he wanted to do in Malaysia.

The folks at Mercedes must be loving this as we should really be slating them for robbing Nico of a podium.

Perhaps Vettel is bigger than the team. Webber has never even finished runner up in the championship. When you bring home the results like Vettel has you are allowed to get away with a bit more. If Webber decides that his only recourse is to take Vettel out then the FIA better act strongly so that there is no question that this will not be tolerated.

Bravo Vettel. If Webber is looking for a win he better start driving and taking care of his car. It's definitely not Vettel's fault if he knows how to race and finish a race with his tires and engine intact with fuel to spare.

Whether you agree with team orders or not...they are a part of F1. People (drivers included) need to remember that the focus of the teams in F1 is the Constructor Championship...not individual driver glory. They pour millions of $ into the car for that reason...not individual driver glory.

If the team gives an order to back off and preserve the car/tires....then as a contracted driver, that is what you do....even if you don't agree.

This is the answer he should've given since the beginning. But I think he was so astonished by the reaction that couldn't think clearly.

Go for it, Seb!
