Vettel ignored team orders to win an intense battle with Webber

Sebastian Vettel ignored Red Bull’s orders in the Malaysian GP to win a powerful battle with his team-mate Mark Webber.

Webber led the race following the final pit stops and team ordered hold position to the end of the race but Vettel passed Webber on the lap 46 following an intense battle.

Vettel has since apologized for the incident. Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton finished on final place of podium ahead of his team-mate Nico Rosberg, who follows the team order to stay at the back.

“We drove wheel to wheel and gave each other little room,” said the triple world champion on the podium. “It was a ‘close’ fight. I went a little too eager to fight because it was better for my tires. “

“I think we enjoyed the fight. We drove all the time close together, with Mark again for me, “said Vettel. “I regularly suffer from traffic. Halfway through the race I was not convinced of our strategy, but eventually took it well. In the final stage, I had more speed. “

Whether he left the fight with Webber wanted to talk? “It was quite warm today,” was Vettel answer. “These things you have to finish indoors. I’m at least the middle of the stage so enjoy something more. “
