You sure about that? You sure there is no language ensuring that the team will do all in its power to help Vettel to wins the driver's Championship?
Seriously. Hand wringing.
There was not a single radio station that said "this is an order" or which told Vettel to give the position back. It was a mild embarrassment. And now high drama which the sport loves.
I doubt any of them are losing any sleep at this point. The writers have plenty to write about. The punters get to argue on the 'net. Hand wringing.
