Healthy driver rivalry is fine but's that not what we have at Redbull, they may pay lipservice to it but Vettel is allowed basically to do what he needs to do to win and Webber is supposed to move aside and now Vettel has admitted as much. That's not what I would describe as rivalry, it's total favoritism glossed over by a fog of words from all of the Redbull heirachy.

@"After seeing Horner in the press conference earlier it seems to me that he has just about had enough of this whole thing"

The press are beating this whole thing to death. You'd think there was something unusual about a Red Bull driver ignoring team orders ...

Both Vettel and Webber are "protected" by Horner's boss, Dietrich Mateschitz, who is against team orders.

He also said on the BBC website the following.....

"Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says Sebastian Vettel's decision to ignore team orders in Malaysia has not undermined his authority."

How can this be? Vettel chose to disobey Horner yet Horner thinks he is in control? What a load of rubbish.
