Sebastian Vettel doesn't need to worry about making friends, providing he keeps winning, according to Red Bull's Helmut Marko.

Poor old Christian Horner has little or no control when it comes to the drivers with Marko around. Christian should demand Marko be booted out although I suspect he knows he would be shown the door first. Martin Whitmarsh wouldn't have it.

So Martin Whitmarsh would not have it ! And now ?
Red Bull chain of command =

1. Dietrich Mateschitz (owner and source of capital)

2. Helmut Marko (Mateschitz right hand man, in charge of driver contracts, sort of a chairman)

3. Christian Horner (team manager for daily routine, CEO like position)

4. Adrian Newey (leads car design, has a say in higher level decisions)

More like Red Bull would not have Martin Whitmarsh !

Remind me how many points Marko scored in F1? He smacks of one of those parents who could never achieve their own dream and tries to do so through their children.

Helmut Marko is an embarresment to Red Bull. Why they employ this individual I do not understand. Vettel is good but as we used to say, don't believe the hype. Vettel in particular needs to not believe his own hype.
We remember Gilles, Hunt, Prost and others as greats - others may have been winners but were not greats.
