The Pretence Is Over

Red Bull has always maintained that they have no team orders, their drivers are free to race each other, yet in a race for a few points that would mean very little to Sebastian Vettel but could mean a great deal to Mark Webber, the latter was told to stop racing and let Vettel have the second place that Mark had earned on merit. I guess it just proves what the fans have known all along, Red Bull has one rule aabout racing when Webber is leading the Championship but an althogether different one for when Vettel is leading. Ultimately this is unfair to both drivers as if I were to wi the Driving Championship, I would want to have done it by earning every point I recieved, not by having someone give them to me. Vettel is going to be a multiple champion, why cheapen his victories? This approach could hurt Red Bull itself if it allows another driver to overtake Mark and it costs Red Bull a 1-2 finish in the championship.
