That is one of the reasons why although I am a Vettel fan I don't particularly care for the Red Bull team. They have failed to maintain harmony between the two drivers and should have done a better job of that over the years.

But you do know that some of that "harmony" would have come about at boy wonder's expense.

Not at all. Why? For starters, they need not have swapped wings in Silverstone in 2010 (which was something that I strongly dispproved of at the time BTW and actually cheered for MW when he won the race. That is the truth). I feel that RBR sometimes take thoughless actions that has affected both their drivers adversely.

I'd say this, I didn't know the commotion of what went on until we got back to the tents because I was actually at Silverstone that year (2013 being the only year I've missed since 2003) and all I heard was "Not bad for a number two driver" and I knew Red Bull screwed up with something or whatever because I think it's pretty clear that Mark is a nice guy and he wouldn't be cocky like this, we heard about this controversy and yeah, happy for Webber then

My heart goes out to this guy - currently the most unluckiest man in F1....

And what a smile - "This sh*t is just beyond ridiculous now." It summed up perfectly how he must feel about driving for RB. He can't wait to get out of there, and who can blame him.

Even Ferrari in the MS era would have given Mark a fair chance yesterday, allowing the team to claim both titles and a Webber win. Maybe even let him finish the race on the podium.

But no, that would affect some of the stats records Seb is going for

I reckon Mark would have had been better off if he took the offer to drive for Ferrari this season in IMO

Lol I know right. It was the most sh*t-eating grin I've seen from an F1 driver if you know what I mean. I hope he's ready to spill some beans about how the team operates right after his gearbox/KERS/alternator/engine fails again in Brazil.
