Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel added new thoughts on disagreement during Malaysian Grand Prix, the final stage of race Vettel overtook his team-mate Webber and to take top podium following disobey team-order. The German recently said Webber ‘didn’t deserve’ victory.

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.

“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, thought about what the team wanted to do by leaving 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. I never had support from his side,” Vettel added.

“I have a lot of support from the team, and the team has supported both of us in the same way. In terms of the relationship with Mark, I respect him a lot as a racing driver, but I think there was more than one occasion in the past where he could have helped the team and he didn’t.”
