Webber is a fine driver, but he thinks he's the equal or better of his three time WDC teammate. Unfortunately, RBR doesn't share this assessment of his talent. Might have something to do with the three WDCs in a row that Vettel has, opposed to the zero for Webber.

I doubt any of us here commenting know what really happened with the fuel shortage of Webber's car. We can only surmise, but it's not too farfetched to think that Webber was short fueled, deliberately. Team principals, team directors and drivers have giant egos and when those egos clash irrational behavior happens.

Once again webber gets bad end of the stick, red bull would never miss calculate vettel fuel. He is the golden boy, Lets face i, they dont want webber to win. F1 is as corrupt as boxing is.

Hilarious. Usually MW will qualify reasonably well and then go backwards very quickly. If he qualifies on front row you can bet that he won't be in position 1 or 2 after the first 3 turns - he's usually heading as fast as he can towards the back of the pack.
And now he's starting dead last. Can he go further backwards than this once the 5 reds go out??

Red Bull give you...not enough fuel!
Give me a break, how many million dollars does Red Bull spend on the F1 team and they expect us to believe the fuel meter failed? Yea - right.

The same thing happened to Vettel in Abu Dhabi last year while he was fighting for the championship.

RB needs Mark to score points for the CC, why would they sabotage themselves and lose out to Ferrari? Any logical conspiracy theorist will tell you that Ferrari or Ferrari supporter is behind this, not RB.
