Formula One News » Horner: Vettel ignored team orders Posted on 25/03/2013
Red bull racing boss Christian Horner says Sebastian Vettel deliberately ignored team orders to hold position after the final round of pit stops at the 2013 Malaysian grand prix.
Speaking to Autosport, Christian Horner said
“Do you honestly think that if we had told him ‘slow down and give the place back’, he would have given it back?
“There was no point. He had made it quite clear what his intention was by making the move. He knew what the communication was. He had had the communication. He chose to ignore it.
“He put his interest beyond what the team’s position was. He was focused on those seven points difference between second and first place – which was wrong. He has accepted it was wrong.”
