All this talk of ignoring/banning team orders is fine. I only wish that Webber had been given the opportunity to also ignore the order to turn his engine down to preserve it. He was reassured multiple times that he should do this and all was fine, and the result was that he was royally shafted. The implication in a lot of this story is that Vettel was faster and had the right to overtake. Webber went from P5 on the grid to P1, and Vettel only took P1 back after Webber turned his engine down (multi-21, Seb). Webber is well within his rights to be annoyed.
