as I said before (in discussion with Red): if Seb has to let Mark through it is just becasue he's been not the strongest driver himself. :O
His own fault. Mark is in the position he is - because he managed to drive with better result so far. Go forward Mark!

Red Bull is the team with two heads/bosses. not the team I wish Kimi would be. Luckily he is going to stay in rally.

What are you talking about? IT DOES apply to both drivers. Are you so narrowly focused on some scenario in your mind that you don't realize Sebastian may need Mark's help? Imagine this: Seb in 1st, Mark in 4th and Alonso in 5th. Seb would need Mark (no longer in contention) to block for him in order to win. So DM's statement applies to both of the team mates.

But I don't care why he said it. I simply agree with it. I don't want team orders, I want them to just race and let fall what may fall - that is why I like what DM said. Why he said it is unimportant. If an out of contention dude helps another at the end, so be it, but Ferrari and its team orders are horrible and ruin racing. They suck all of the fun out of it, because they destroy the challenge. Let the drivers decide.

what would dm do if next years championship would be between vettelke and kimike?


This issue would not arise at all. If you cannot see that, I don't know what to tell you. Kimi drives fair, works fair, doesn't try to manipulate his team mates or the press and put a ton of pressure on his team mates. He likes to win on merit...because he can. As I say, this would not be a problem at all.
Every mile I have with the Citroen C4 WRC is giving a certain pleasure - Kimi Raikkonen
My ideal is to win the race at the slowest speed possible - Alain Prost
You should just stick with those people who are really there for you - Sebastian Vettel

yeah, people keep saying that DM would demand Mark to lend his support to Vettel if their positions were reversed but they forgot that Mark already rejected the possibility to help Vettel last year. even then, DM did not take Mark's job away from him, so I dunno what Mark is whinging about now...

And I also feel that Mark has been taking swipes at Vettel to the point that Vettel has gone from being generally well-liked to jerk in a matter of months. Did anyone realize Vettel has yet to publicly state how he feels about Mark except for that one time he made that crazy gesture after the crash? People do or say things in the het of the moment and while it has been excusable for webber, it cannot be tolerated for vettel. talk about double standards. He has been the more mature of the 2, keeping quiet and refusing to be drawn into it by the journos like Mark has. And Mark is the older, so supposedly more mature one.

But people mostly remember WDC driver not WCC, so WDC = PR and Red Bull is all about PR, they aren't only racing team it's also big business :O

I think that if the situation will be like in Brazil, Seb will let Mark go or RB will be stupid :zz:

But he is talking about some proper holiday! If he was about to return to F1 he would have some testing to do at the end of November :p

Me, too! But well I think that he knows more than us and if he was about to retire he wouldn´t talk about holidays, would he? :confused:

I don't think he plans for it to be a permanent holiday! But we never know what could happen: negotiations might fall through....RBR may keep Webber.....Jenni might have a BBB-word.....
