Formula One News » Vettel would “probably” do it again – Was paying Webber back

Sebastian Vettel says he would “probably” ignore team orders again as he was “indirectly” paying Mark Webber back.

“I am not sure I can give you a proper answer because in the moment it might be different, but I would probably do the same.” Vettel said.

“Had I understood the message and had I thought about it, reflected on it, thought what the team wanted to do, to leave Mark in first place and me finishing second, I think I would have thought about it and I would probably have done the same thing.

“He didn’t deserve it.”

“There is quite a conflict, because on the one hand I am the kind of guy who respects team decisions and the other hand, probably Mark is not the one who deserved it at the time.”

When asked if he was “paying” Webber back, Sebastian said “Probably you could say indirectly so.

“But as I tried to explain after the race in my opinion it’s always best to be truthful. Maybe sometimes the truth is not what the people want to hear because as you can see controversy is more popular than the truth.

“I told you after the race what happened; I was racing, as a racing driver I was solely focused on winning the race. I got a call on the radio which I heard but I didn’t understand at the time.

“I should have understood, that’s why I apologised to the team because in my action I put myself above the team but that wasn’t my intention. Whether you believe me or not is up to you.”
