Bernie support Vettel’s decisions chose to ignore team order

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone support reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel’s decisions chose to ignore team order at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

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

But Formula 1 official right holder Bernie Ecclestone thinks that reigning world champion was right to take gain of the situation, telling Sky Sports that he would have done the same.

“If I was Sebastian Vettel, having won three world championships for the team, and somebody came on the radio and started giving me instructions, I’d probably do exactly the same as Kimi Raikkonen did when he came back and they gave him some instructions. I’d say, ‘I know what I’m doing’.

“I always say, show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser. Sebastian is not a loser. Sebastian is a winner.”

“I don’t think he’s undermined Christian’s authority. Christian knows exactly what should have happened didn’t happen. But put yourself in Christian’s position, what should he now do? Did he give orders in the first place? If he did, how could he then give more orders?”

Asked if he would discipline Vettel if he was in Horner’s shoes, Ecclestone added: “I don’t think I’d give that any consideration. I’d say to Sebastian, ‘In the future don’t make me look an idiot’.”
