I can understand Christians frustration at such ridiculous suggestions. As if they would spend tens of millions of dollars each year only to sabotage one their cars. As much as i hate saying it, Unfortunately Marks ultimate misfortune was his own doing after colliding with JEV.

Webber didnt help himself yesterday,but you could see that JEV left the door wide open, inviting the attack from MW.Redbull dont exactly operate like a tight nit team, especially with Helmut Marko being so one sided with his negative remarks with MW. If Newey was not present, their
status would not be what it is. They have a poor management structure, for a team that is so successsful.

If RBR had a conspiracy against Mark, they would not have been so stupid as to deliberately underfuel his car for Quali, they would have been far more subtle in their methods.

Horner should have laughed, not got angry, but I suspect he is sick of hearing it.

I find it very amusing that Horner is having to answer these questions. It's gone from internet forums to the F1 paddock!

Anyway, Horner won't need to worry about Webber next year. He might have to do a bit more 'rubbishing' if Webber brings out a book though!

Its completely ridiculous to suggest that Redbull would sabotage Webbers car, they need both cars scoring points for the constructors championship but that does'nt mean that they don't favour Vettel, Marko etc are quite open in that respect and it should'nt come as a surprise that Webber does'nt get the same treatment as Vettel. They don't have to be obvious there's many a slight of hand to be used to make sure that Vettel has that small edge that makes a big difference.

googol. there is a good analysis on autosport. as you say, if rbr wanted to slow down webber in quali, they would have put in MORE fuel, to slow him down. then there is the point, why waste 100m running a second car only to make sure it had problems? and why try to ensure mark stayed ahead of vettel in sepang? etc etc.

by the way, the rumours of mark going to porsche have been denied by porsche.

ps. i see i have won a bottle of grange, or is it gunge? is that the equivalent of vb or 4X ?

oldtimer. just saw your post that crossed mine.
rbr do not need to use slight (sic) of hand to ensure that vettel has the edge over webber. he has that edge without rbr being involved. :p :p
