Geez guys... Don't you think this went a little overboard? Can't you just agree to disagree?

Anyways, on Button's Facebook site there is an article about RBR breaking the world record. It starts out like this
JB Facebook wrote:Red Bull set a new world record in Malaysia and no, we are not talking about the number of times Mark Webber may or may not have cursed Sebastian Vettel.

I thought this was quite funny.

What's wrong with you guys?

Anyway mnmracer has been banned. Apparently the guy likes to argue with people all the time and we have work to do. We can't monitor the board every hour or so.

mikhailv you are not alone here. So please watch your language.

Kimi will be replacing Webber in 2014? Vettel will be in a deep trouble then :-D hard days to come for him.. I don't think RB would still prefer Vettel from that moment on...

Not permanently, I hope. :(

I find it hilarious how you ban mnmracer and not mikhailv, I think it's obvious whose side you are on in this debate. :roll::

The Russian government loans the local authority in Krasnodar around £192m to ensure that the track is ready for the Russia Grand Prix in October 2014, BBC Monitoring report the Russian news agency Isvestia as saying.

Nice article; a diplomatic response to what's been happening...

I don't think RB will fret too much about the Concorde agreement given their relationship with Bernie...

There is no side to be on. He was a nightmare on PF1 and is the same on Autosport.I 'm disappointed he has been banned, hope you reconsider. We're both as guilty as each other and final warnings should suffice. So please, bring him back.

Agree. Nice share, thanks phil.

Makes it all the more obvious how their bonding in recent time is actually just a way to compensate for the fact that Vettel is snatching away the world titles right in front of their noses. They try so hard to establish a kind of myth of the "ones that should have won", exchanging (false) compliments on the way and in doing so, trying to belittle Vettel. It's, for the most part, a pretty obvious sharade, isn't it? I don't suggest that there hasn't been a genuine regaining of respect since 2007, but if they both were in the same team again now, it wouldn't be much different than it was in 2007. Which leads to another reason why they "bond" so well these days: the fact that both of them know that they'll (probably) never drive for the same team again. Which is a real shame.

Or maybe they've raced together using the same equipment, and therefore respect what each is capable of? Turning this simple matter of respect between two drivers into some sort of conspiracy to belittle another driver is quite ridiculous.

If Vettel supporters think that's belittling their driver, then they're probably insecure about how good their driver is...

Oh wow, I thought it was common knowledge!

Apparently Lewis was hiding from Ron for the rest of the weekend :p
