And Red Bull cannot win the constructor's title with one competitive car. World class drivers are not a dime-a-dozen commodity.

Webber does not have to work another day in his life and he will still die a wealthy man with more Formula 1 victories than over 95% of all F1 drivers in history. Webber is not the driving schlub some on here would like to portray.

Perhaps F1 should rid itself of drivers and tracks, and have teams order the race results however they please?

Competition is evil and wild don't you know? We must remove competition from all sports.


It's more important to obey authority without question. It's the new paradigm.

I can't seem to find the post-race sit down interviews anywhere.

Does anyone have a link?

I agree Weber is a very good driver. I don't think he will do anything to sabotage Red Bull's season. Nor do I expect him to help Vettel in any way.

I do think a decent replacement could be found though.

I also don't think the constructors title means sh!t.

Understand. It is a shame it affects the driver's championship, though.

The feed I saw (NBC) had the post race interviews up on the podium. Was there a sit down after that?

Of interest to no one, apparently, is the fact that the top 4 cars were coasting for the second half of the "race" and an actual on-track competition was deemed by two team managers to run counter to business considerations. How exciting.
Yeah, you're right. The same happens in IndyCar. And in NASCAR. I mean, I guess you could hate on all those series for the same reason. The cars are looking for the best equation, the best balance of fuel, tires and parts, that gets them to the end with the maximum haul of points that is realistically possible.

You know a lot more about motorsports than I ever will, you certainly know all this better than I do, so I guess I don't understand your beef.

What I was trying to say was that with little to lose, Webber himself may be less inclined to follow team orders next time. This might include refusing to help Vettel when help is needed. It might conceivably (we can hope!) include Webber leading a race late in the season and refusing to turn the lead over to Vettel.

All conjecture, of course, but a man can dream.

Webber made his intent very clear last year that he woud not help Vettel at all, he was out to win every race that he could. He is in the same equipment with the same support, can barely pull off a good start and collapses under pressure, sound like a champion, not..
