As Redbull have said, there will be no team orders.....we will make sure there will be no need for them. Chapter 1. Do not put enough fuel in Webbers car.
The only good thing is Vettel is too slow to win this one anyway....I hope a safetycar helps Mark close the gap to the front....Kimi to win!!

I think we will see webber's car having all sorts of problems this year. He should take the hint and just walk now. I don't know how he can stand being in the same garage as web and not knock him out after what he's been spouting off.

Let's get off the conspiracy theories please, why would RBR intentionally underfuel Mark's car?. They want the Constructor's Championship. Vettel is a multiple WDC and is fast, the fact that he is an untrustworthy petulant brat may one day go against him with RBR or other teams, but for now RBR want both drivers as far up in the points as possible. Suck it in Mark and give us a memorable drive through the field tomorrow, and beat Seb if you fairly can.

jagworth. all cars put in the absolute minimum for a fast lap. this was a bad calculation by some one, but where were the conspiracy theorists last year, when the same thing happened to vettel? or to lulu, or to.....?

As a fan of F1, I feel cheated seeing Mark Webber at the back of the grid. What does annoy is Red Bulls total lack of respect for us fans. Do they seriously expect us to believe the story they are putting out as a reason? Still every cloud has a sliver lining, I did not put my money on Red Bull winning the constructors championship this year.

More! More! I do love a good conspiracy theory - I heard the guy on Mark's fuel rig is the same guy who designed the fake moon landing set in the 60s! I suppose they'll have to buy Mark some conspiracy wheelnuts from McLaren or Force India for the next race...

One thing is for sure, Vettel gets a lot better attention than Mark. Vettel has acute failures, Marc has chronic issues that don't seem to go away (KERS), poor strategy, etc...
