Well Vettel is screwed. Webber is gonna do everything possible to make sure Vettel doesn't get the better of him again like that. I guarantee the Red Bull's are gonna wreck each other at some point this season now because of this.

Well said, especially the last part. Hamilton used up most of his fuel, or underfueled, and Rosberg has to pay for it, where they could have just let him past and keep the 3-4 finish.

No Red Bull driver has been shot/sacked/fined for disobeying team orders. The whole saga could have been resolved if RBR called them what they really are, "team suggestions" which drivers can ignore at their discretion.

I'm surprised Buttons's surprised. Vettel is'nt a triple F1 champ for nothing, perhaps Button should take on a more aggressive approach like Vettel because his current one brings him relativly few results. Most F1 champions have been single minded to a huge degree, that's why they become champions, nothing gets in one's way especially Mark Webber.

I feel sorry for Nico. Hamilton basically used up all his fuel and tires (no surprise on either) and the race was over between those two drivers. Nico was penalized for managing his race and told to hold station. I don't know if that was the car for the Red Bulls, but having the race over between teammates after the last pit stop is a slap in the face of race fans. We want to see a race, not procession.

Note that Chris Horner announced that they're doing away with team orders the very instant that Seb said that he wouldn't follow them anyway.

The driver is now bigger than the team.

Lewis used up all his fuel? Well the odds are if a driver is short fueled due to the team underestimating a drivers race pace then it stands to reason the the naturally quicker driver will have no fuel come race end, dont you think Pete.
