F1 2010 POLL: Did Red Bull treat Webber unfairly?

11 July 2010

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 though 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 that 'it wasn't bad for a number two driver'.

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

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