Did Red Bull treat Mark Webber unfairly?


Vote in our latest F1 2010 poll and have your say now on if you think Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber was unfairly treated by his team following 'new front wing-gate' on Saturday.


Mark Webber put the injustice of qualifying behind him to take a convincing win at the British Grand Prix on Sunday, a result that reignites his championship aspirations and moves him up to third in the standings.

Webber was extremely miffed following qualifying after having to hand 'his' new front wing to team-mate Sebastian Vettel, who promptly used it to secure P1 on the grid. Although the team denied there was any favouritism [see separate story - click here], Webber was not at all happy and went into Sunday's race determined to make a point.

He did so in style too, grabbing the lead at the start and then setting fastest lap after fastest lap to keep McLaren's Lewis Hamilton in check. It was his third win of the season – following victories in Spain and Monaco – and while he was delighted, tensions remain. Indeed after taking gold and thanking his team, he announced over the radio - something that was relayed on TV - that 'it wasn't bad for a number two driver'.

So do you think he was treated unfairly by his team on Saturday?

Or was Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner right to give the new front wing to Vettel, considering the German was higher in the championship standings prior to the tenth round in the championship and also fastest in final practice?

Have your say now...
