Vettel hints at team orders for Webber

The newly crowned world champion has hinted that he may be in a position to help Webber finish 2nd in the championship, by saying that "scenarios" could come into play at the Indian GP. "I would love to see Mark finishing second, it's good for us as a team. I think we had a strong season so far and that would be the best way to finish such a fantastic season."

Not bad for a number two, eh Webber?
wibbah   Mark Webber
Crikey, what's that supposed to mean mate?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well it seems your conspiracy theories can't be denied any more - Red Bull are clearly trying their best to put you second.
Horner   Christian Horner
It's well known that we have no driver preference Michael, but 2nd position would be a fantastic result for Mark, our equal 1st driver.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Fair go mate, I can still win races, I'll pull it out of the dunny for next season.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
I believe in you Mark, you can totally win races. As long as you ask nicely, haha.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Shouldn't you be thinking about records now Vettel rather than bailing out your "ageing underling"?
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
I've heard of records Fernando, my granddad says that's how he used to get his MP3's.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Hang on to those precious memories Ambrosia, that's the only kind of record you'll ever get your hands on.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Don't worry Nando, I can still get the AWESOME most poles in a season record, even if I let Mark win.
Horner   Christian Horner
That's right Seb, having discussed our options we have decided that it would be redundant to give Mark pole position due to the improbability of him holding it into the first corner.
wibbah   Mark Webber
Strike me pink mate, it's the clutch, it's flamin' cactus.
Horner   Christian Horner
I had Adrian take a look Mark, and he believes there is indeed a problem, located somewhere between your brain and the clutch pedal.

Far be it from me to criticise the Red Bull team, but I must say that I believe team orders are completely inappropriate in this circumstance and I would go so far as to say it brings the sport into disrepute, and while I understand people's criticism of team orders, I really believe that argument is now over and teams should have every right to do as they see fit.
DC   David Coulthard
I really don't understand the whole controversy around team orders Martin, in my opinion anything that saves money in the current economy is a good thing.
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
I don't follow David, how does team orders save anyone money?
DC   David Coulthard
Well I remember from my McLaren days that Burger King gave us a discount if the whole team ordered together, instead of paying separately.
MBrundle   Martin Brundle
Christ David, "team orders" is about letting one driver get ahead of the other, despite one of them perhaps being faster.
DC   David Coulthard
Exactly my point Martin, if you make a team order, there's no queueing and everyone gets their burger at the same time.
