Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber had just secured an historic one-two debut victory for the team, but Red Bull's motorsport advisor Helmut Marko said one element of Sunday's proceedings left him distinctly 'disappointed'.

That's F1! Always good for new embarrassments...

You are asking difficult questions, Dave! Maybe are the locations of the car factories for some teams not so a big thing. It is turning into an embarrassment, if they win and don't know, which anthem is the right one. Red Bull should determine that for future victories...

Renault is a mixed bag because their operation is in UK but their HQ and engines are French. Will do some more research and get back to you guys- i mean we could both be right in a way so don't want to jump the gun.

Hey Davy- just checked- Renault F1 Team is actually registered as an entrant in the F1 championship by the French motorsport body- ie French licence for the team........
sorry- but you got to admit the marseillaise is a great tune compared to some other weird stuff we get to hear!

Yeah, but I,m sure they play the Brit anthem when they win.
Anyone got a video of the podiums from last year when Alonso won?

I was just goong to add my 2 cents, and the library gal sorts it out. They do indeed play the french anthem when Renault win, I should know, for 2 freaking years in 2005 and 2006 I heard it so often i wanted to slit my wrists
