Horner reiterates Red Bull driver stance

Christian Horner again insists that Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber are free to fight on track
Christian Horner has reiterated Red Bull's stance in the F1 championship and again insisted that there will be no team orders imposed on its drivers.

Horner had insisted ahead of the Korean Grand Prix that team orders wouldn't be imposed on Mark Webber while he remains in the title hunt.

The race then saw Sebastian Vettel secure his third successive victory to move into the championship with Webber following him home in second for Red Bull's first 1-2 finish of the season.

It means the pair are split by 63 points in the standings with 100 still to play for but Horner again insisted that there would be no orders imposed while both have a mathematical chance of winning the crown.

"Sebastian has moved into the lead and Mark still has a chance of winning this championship,” he was quoted by Sporting Life.

"I think it would be wrong to impose team orders while Mark still mathematically has a chance of winning.

"They demonstrated in Korea they race each other fairly, and that is all we ask of them."

It is very difficult to believe there is no favouritism in RB. Mark cant do standing starts when the team set the software to control them, so even when Seb starts behind, he can still outdrag Marks car. Seb is very good, but Webber must doing a good job as an obvious no 2, as few driver pairings on the grid generally have such equal lap times. The Redbull now is easily the car to beat on the grid, unless McLaren do a perfect job. Alonso is unlucky to not be in front now, as he done a brilliant consistent job to be 2nd. RB need a new spokesman now as Horner is getting very boring with his correct pr speak. Perhaps Mark can be no1 in 2014, if the Vettel jumping to Ferrari are true. May the best man win, given the right equipment!!
