Well done Mark Webber. Was great to hear our national anthem being played at the podium for all the world viewers to hear.

Bit late isnt it?

Ferrari are considering whether to lodge a protest that could lead to the result of the Formula One world championship being overturned.
 
British and Italian media reports said Ferrari were "evaluating footage" to see if it shows Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel making an illegal overtaking move in Sunday's Brazilian Grand Prix, where he finished sixth to clinch the title.

The German beat Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by three points to rack up his third straight drivers' title.

Ferrari are analysing television footage from Vettel's on-board camera to determine if the 25-year-old overtook Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne in an illegal area of the track.

Vettel could be dropped to eighth if any protest is upheld and Alonso would be world champion by one point.

Anything is possible in F1. If I was Ferrari Id do the same thing, he clearly overtook when he shouldnt have.....rules are rules.......and I dont particularly like Vettel LOL

Vettel is awesome. Not manydrivers, Schumacher excluded (in early days) can go from last to 3rd on podium.
3 straight drivers championship.

Don't be surprised if he overtakes Schumacher records. Youngest driver to win three.



You can't deny talent.  Having met MS briefly, a sincere guy to be straight. There's some other drivers I don't hold with the same regard or respect.
Why do people ask "What the hell were you thinking?"
Obviously I was thinking I was going to get away with it and not have to explain it....

I agree but he is beating our only Aussie hopeful since AJ and that makes me sad! ;)

Thats happens in all forms of racing. Its only logical to put your money behind the bloke who has the best chance to win.

X2 I think Webber has found himself in the right car at the wrong time. Love cheering him on :cup: Consecutive Monaco victories, something that only world champions have previously been able to do, is no mean feat!

I'd love to see Daniel Ricciardo in a competitive car, I think he's shown some talent. Unfortunately it may well be at
the exexpense of Webber. Should have gone to McLaren to replace the big sook Hamilton!

Great climax at Brazil. Can't wait for next year. Just need someone to beat Vettel.

FIA says 'no case' to answer in Vettel overtaking controversy

http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/104644
Which is odd considering the FIA (Fédération Ferrari Internationale de l'Automobile) is now headed by a former Ferrari employee...


While Vettel has been super slick this year (and the previous 2) Alonso is the driver of the year for me.  He had that Ferrari punching so far above it's weight.

He is a dual winner, but not in consecutive years.  10 & 12.

Yep poor bugger showed up every team mate he as ever had to get himself into a decent ride and as it turns out the young bloke has some real pace too :( I still think Mark can win a title over Vettel, he has shown him up in the past when everything was working for him. Big ask I know but I live in hope.
I wont mind when/if Riccardo takes over from Webber, Mark has had his opportunitys after next season.

100% agree with this too. Ferrari was nothing without Alonso. Come race day he just keeps grinding away and puts that thing where very few others would be able. Driver of the year and I really hoped he clinched the title at the last race.

LOL Fair enough Id hate to see it won in court, they should have pinged Vettel when he over took under yellows on the day it may have made a difference.......

I stand corrected!

Agree, Alonso is a mega talent. Just imagine him in a Red Bull alongside Vettel.........Prost/Senna all over again ;D

Alonso may be a good talent, but Vettel is a league ahead.....same as Webber....top driver, but hasn't quite got the raw talent of Vettel..

Webber has shown he can occasionally out qualify Vettel, but come race time, most of the time, he just hasn't got that extra 5% needed to outrace him....and that's not a negative against Webber, it's just that Vettel is usually a slightly better driver..

Short memory, must have a ... shoooooooooooooooooooooooorrrrttttttttttttttt memoreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

He already played Vettel at this game, British GP in 2011. Webber ignored team orders to try and pass Vettel multiple times against team orders, and failed. At least Vettel can pull it off. Webber needs to stop whinging about this, he's coming across as a hypocrite

Quote
Mark Webber has returned to Australia to consider his future as the corrosive atmosphere within his Red Bull Formula One team hits an all-time low.

Webber accused Red Bull of protecting teammate Sebastian Vettel after the German disobeyed team orders and passed the Australian on Sunday to steal victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Vettel was contrite later, admitting: "I f....d up" but Webber was furious and immediately returned to Queensland to think about his future.
 
He said he would cut off all contact with the team during his break.

"I think it's very early days right now. It's very raw, obviously, and we need to work out how the team goes best forwards from here," Webber said.

"That's obviously going to be discussed this week. I will be in Australia on my surfboard - the phone won't be engaged. We will see what happens.
