Hey guys don't even bother reading the rest if the comments, it's just RBR conspiracy theorist doing what they do best:

If they want to cripple webber they would let him out on the Softs in FP3, that way the Webber fans/conspiracy theorist would be happy and Vettel would pass Webber once his tyres went away.

Thanks no point in reading anymore

Simple. The RB is off its game due to the tire selected by the Pirelli Challenge authorities (F1 is now officially dead). There was an unforeseen failure somewhere with Marks car - there is ZERO motivation for any team seeking a WCC to hobble any driver - so any suggestion this was intentional is complete rubbish. Seb is left with a tire strategy last ditch attempt to make hey Sunday. We'll see if it all works tomorrow when the Pirelli Challenge series race 3 plays out. Will be interesting. I'd prefer a real GP race, but this should be entertaining - which is the purpose of the f**** the sloppy Pirelli tires have made of the sport formerly known as F1.

I get the feeling Mark is going to have more of these unfortunate situations this season.He will never be allowed to get close to Vettel during a race again until he joins another top team next year, and I can't wait to see it.

Webber is getting old now but he should be looking at Schumacher, 43 and still competitive. A swap with Raikonen for next year wouldn't be a bad idea.

I wish everyone would lay off Pirelli.

They are only producing what the FIA want, nothing more, nothing less.

Do you all honestly think that a tyre company like Pirelli couldn't make a tyre that lasts?

Jesus people, wake up!
