I think, having had the opportunity to think about it for a while, what bothers me the most is not that Vettel overtook Webber, or even that he ignored team orders, but the management of the situation from the team. I certainly don't think we will get the opportunity to see the telemetry to know without a doubt which engine setting each car was on (my guess would be that Webber had turned his down) but Webbers engineer should have alerted him that Vettel was coming, and the gap was closing down (maybe he did, I don't know - but based on the history at RBR between these two, if I were webber and knew Vettel was coming, I'd have turned my engine back up to make sure he couldn't close the gap so easily).
