After the dust had settled from yesterday’s race, Red Bull’s boss stood behind Sebastian Vettel in regards to the crash with Mark Webber. Webber went on to take third place after the incident with his team mate’s car in Turkey.
Team advisor Helmut Marko is now pushing the blame onto Webber and his race engineer Ciaron Pilbeam. “Webber was slower and Vettel had immense pressure from Hamilton, unfortunately Mark was not told about the situation accurately by his race engineer,” maintained Marko.
He apparently had radioed the pits to say that he was slower than Vettel on the straights.”Vettel was so much faster. If Webber and he had braked together, then Hamilton would have passed Vettel,” continued Marko.
In the end Horner indicated that he was angry with both drivers, but Webber had to swallow the bitter pill. Horner went on to say that Webber didn’t leave Vettel enough space and it was very clear that Vettel was at his side and in front. He went on to say that he will speak to both drivers about the incident.
