F1 » Marko: You only count points in F1, not friends


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

So Helmut has now publicly given Sebastion the excuse that he needs to openly defy Christian. But Mr. Horner, didn't Helmut tell you that my brain can't process orders like that? And if he didn't, TOUGH, we only let you think that you are the boss here but you aren't really. Oh please don't cry. By the way, where are you and Mark going next season?

For this time I have to say that I agree 100% whit Marko´s statement (I am not a Red Bull fan) because F1 is a war, a war of interests in every sense. What happens is that people hide this reality using diplomacy and junk like that.

Lol... all the Webber apologists hang their hat on a "friends" comment by someone that doesn't even race. Is this what it has come down to? Webber is lucky to be in such a chassis and really is barely qualified to be a #2.
Vettel is a true racer and looks like a genius for overtaking MW in Malaysia. Points don't lie:
Vettel: 77 pts.
Webber: 32 pts.
Even if Vettel had held station:
Vettel: 70 pts.
Webber: 39 pts.
The Webber apologists needs to explain how MW would work out that math for a WDC only 4 races in....

The point of telling Vettel to hold position at this part of the season was to save engine and gearbox life. While teams have a limited number of engines for the season they will try to save as much as they can in case they run into reliability problems.

Whilst marko was responaible for bringing both Newey and Vettel to the team, he creates massive internal friction with open favoritisim and it underminds the whole team, the problem lies in the fact the Actual owner of the team wants nothing to do with the running of his team.

I understand vettel is better then webber but the way he treats webber is as if he is an outside commentator not involved with the team, if there driver program doesn't produce quality drivers then who are they going to hire, who ever comes will be a slave to marko.

Even ferrari treats there less favored drivers with more respect then this.

Not sure why HM is reiterating this now - I think we all understood in Malaysia! I just hope he realises that Kimi won't give a sh1t about HM if he does go to RBR.
