Sebastian Vettel not taking responsibility for crash with Webber

Published

on

Sebastian Vettel on Monday declined to accept the blame for his crash with Red Bull teammate Mark Webber throughout the recent Turkish GP. Regardless of team bosses no longer spotting their fingers at Australian Webber in the wake of a clear-the-air meeting last Thursday, 22-year-old Vettel said he thinks he was in the right on lap 40.

“You do at the time what you think is right, and in that case you would do it again because you thought it was right,” he said in an interview with the BBC.

“I had already passed Mark and then tried to come slowly back to the right. At that time I was the leading car and then usually the leader dictates where to go. “We made contact and that was the end of the race for me,” Vettel told, now fifth in the championship and 15 points behind title leader Webber.

Following emerging from his suffering RB6 at Istanbul Park, Vettel wiggled his right index finger around his ear, signifying he thought Webber had acted crazily. But on Monday, he refused to prove the intent.

“I think it was pretty clear at the time. I don’t think it was a crazy sign. I think it’s very common. I think everyone understood,” he said.
