Marko insists all is well at Red Bull

Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko insists all is well within the team despite the controversy surrounding the Malaysian Grand Prix
Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko says he feels the situation between Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel has been settled following the controversial incident involving the pair in Malaysia.

Vettel ignored team orders to pass Webber for the lead of the race at Sepang and went on to take a first win of the year, leaving Webber angered in the process.

The defending champion has come under attack for his actions despite apologising to Webber afterwards, with Marko stating he felt the issue between the pair had been resolved in the aftermath of the race.

“They don't have to be on the same page but it must be a solid working partnership,” he said. “Sebastian apologised afterwards, and that is the first correct step. There was a debrief and a handshake afterwards, so for us the issue is settled.”
