My point was made in the second sentence, the first sentence was rhetorical. I am no conspiracy theorist, I was just making the point that it was a pretty bad choice of weekend to stuff up on fuelling Mark's car.

clueless. maybe i have more understanding of how a team works....
do you honestly believe that a team will fork out millions only to continually foul up a car? if that was the case, they would get a paying no-hoper in the second car!

i wont make the obvious comment about your penname!

I can show you first race: Webber starts right behind Vettel, KERS problem (not the first time this happens to him). Second race, Webber starts in 5th position and Vettel is pole position. Vettel used two sets of tyres in Q3. By mistake, Webber was told he had more laps so he didn't have to change tyres yet, but time passed and he didn't have enough time to try a second set of tyres like Vettel. However, I don't think this was so bad for Webber. Since he wasn't close to Vettel, he had great start this time. The problem came later on when he thought Vettel would respect team orders. 3rd race, they don't put enough fuel in his car in Q2, he's out.

WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK THAT REDBULL DON'T WANT WEBBER ANYWHERE NEAR VETTEL IN THE FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP? It's really twisted of me to think that these are not all coincidences and bad luck EVERY SINGLE RACE.

The WCC is the only paying trophy thats why they don't mess up on purpose. With Massa now helping FA in the points tally Red Bull needs both drivers to do well. Mark has HIS side of the garage and thats where the blame lies. Not on some conspiracy story. Here is a good question for you AMG. Why is Webber not spewing the same stuff you are spewing? You know he never lacks for words at ANYtime.
