Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel has say sorry to Red Bull staff for ignoring team orders in a controversial Malaysian Grand Prix.
Red Bull Racing said the 25-year-old German had also spoken to hurt team mate Mark Webber, who had victory snatched away in the closing laps, following the race at Sepang and the pair had shaken hands.
Also the team boss Christian Horner says that the German also vowed that there will be no repeat in future.
“He’s said he can’t turn back the clock but he’s accepted what he did was wrong,” Horner was quoted by Reuters, who visited the Milton Keynes factory on Tuesday to address employees.
“He’s apologised to the team and to every single member of staff for his actions, because he recognises the team is vitally important and being part of the team is a crucial aspect to being able to challenge for those championships.”
