If Webber expects to lead into the first corner he's going to have to get a decent start. History says he may not even be able to hold onto second or third before he reaches turn one. Given that his long run pace is good, compared to the Mercs he should have a solid second, if his car manages to survive the race.

And some say Vettel is arrogant and deserves all the booing. Giving credit to his team mate in this case wasn't a case of arrogance or frustration. As for team orders I don't believe that RBR will use them tomorrow. I think that even Vettel would like a real fight with Webber at this point of the season. You never know what's in Horner's head but I believe(hope) that we will see a fascinating race between both RBRs and both Mercedes drivers.

I think Redbull would like to see Mark get a win before the season is finished. Especially now that they have secured the Drivers and Constructors Championships there is no reason for them to use team orders.

i think if vettel is close enough to mark then team orders will come into play as vettel is going for his 7th straight win and horner would love to see his star man with such a stat. if webber is as fast and team orders are given i dont think webber will just pull over and just let him through any1 remember "MULTI21" it might be pay back time.. anyway vettel will probs get mark off the line.

Paddock, I don't think team orders will even be a consideration for this race. The championship is over so they'll be free to race, with the old caveat don't take each other out.
To be honest if they did tell Webber to let Vettel through, firstly it would be wrong at this stage of the season and secondly I think Webber would ignore it.
I'd be surprised if Webber could beat Vettel in a straight race but I'd like to see Mark win one more, it would give him wins in 5 consecutive seasons and only 10 drivers have done better than that.

Taipan, this off topic, an opportunity both you and Richard (hope he reading) should not miss, while we waiting on the race to start.
