Red Bull F1 Driver Mark Webber Thinks About Future After Controversy At Malaysian GP
Published March 26, 2013
A TELLING MOVE: In London, Kevin Eason suggested by passing his teammate, Vettel "showed a side of his character that defied the cuddly, cheery image of the sport’s youngest three-times world champion" and "exposed himself as ruthless to the point of immorality." Eason also wrote, "Only Formula One gets itself into this sort of tangle. Teams running two cars drive into a moral cul-de-sac as soon as they push the button for team orders. At some point, there will always be favouritism, either to ensure the safe return of both cars or to maximise points for a World Championship" (LONDON TIMES, 3/25). Also in London, Eason wrote that "peace talks at Red Bull are on hold" and the team was "ripped apart by Vettel's decision to ignore orders" and pass Webber. Former drivers have called for Vettel to be sanctioned by his team, but "that is unlikely." Team Principal Christian Horner has "promised talks with his three-times world champion" (LONDON TIMES, 3/26).
