And over here in the USA the new TV deal stunk..they cut away to commercial and you did not see the pass. Are you kidding me...they cut away for the biggest pass of the race and maybe the year? They just don't get it. I live close to the border so I gues the next race I watch it from Montreal...NOT NBC

an F1 farce, stop the team orders, if this was a horse race both teams would have been banned. Vettle took advantage of a team mate, ignoring order from his employer to fulfill his ego Shameful
If Red Bull want to support this debacle then Red Bull diminishes its brand. I will not use a Red Bull product until this nonsense is stopped.

Outruns team mate??
Fierce battle???
Do you actually know whats going on boboblogger?
Mark Webber was quoted as saying after the instruction that "I turned my engine down to save the tyres" Obviously Vettel the selfish prick took advantage of his TEAM MATE's tactic who by the way is a TEAM PLAYER, and said "F*ck you all"
Maybe if there was equal footing he would of "outrun" his TEAM MATE, but that is highly unlikely as Webber led all the way, and all Vettel has shown is that he is a dirty dog!

Webber listened to the team orders to turn down the engine that is why he was driving slower but keeping ahead of the other teams or else he would have lead by more seconds and would have one the race easy,

Vettel screwed Webber because he knows he is there number 1 driver at Red bull,

Webber should have went to drive for Ferrari not resign because i feel Redbull is not allowing him to show his full potential as a future world champion.

I really do think Vettel is an axxhole now. He had really showed this time, he is fast, but no longer a champion, not a good teammate for sure, cheap & low class...

I enjoy watching F1, but the less I know about the people in it the better.

They ALL sound like D-bags!

I really dislike team orders, but being as they had agreed on it, Seb should've listened. That being said, I seem to recall in the final race of the season last year Webber made some very dangerous moves attempting to pass Vettel which could have cost him the championship (and was undoubtedly contrary to what the team was saying for him to do). And although Webber turned his engine back up when he saw Vettel was still going for the pass, Vettel would've had to work much harder to catch him up had he been going all out.

I forgot about last year's final race.

May give some insight into Vettel's motives..........

Regardless, it gives Team Red Bull a little Prost/Senna flair, no?

Horner as a boss should inflict a team punishment for his blatant disobedience. Who does he think he is. Sick of hearing horners gutless pathetic excuses. Where's the fury? Whether its webber or someone else you can't have irresponsible unsafe behaviour like that. Seriously redbull

Teamorders are not what real F1 fans wanīt to see. Vettel does right when he ignore that order and win the GP.

Dr. Marco said that he want that Webber will be the 2013 F1 Champion but he donīt see what Webbers placements in the last few years. Vettel is the top driver in the team and mostly Webber is driving far behind him and many other drivers.

The Champ has to fight for the actual championship and not the "second hand"

I watch F1 to see 20-odd DRIVERS go out there and drive, and pass, and take chances, and fight to win.

I DON'T watch F1 to see 10-some TEAMMATES buddying each other around the track on their owner's orders.
