Red Bull has hit back at claims that Sebastian Vettel threw a 'hissy fit' following the first test at Jerez.

A 'major publication' claimed that Vettel refused to drive the Red Bull RB10 until its problems were sorted.

In a light-hearted rebuttal posted, Red Bull's 'F1 Spy' posted a response on the team's official website.

'A major news broadcaster posted the story this morning, along with the line "No-one outside the team knows whether it happened or not, and those on the inside wouldn't say.

Eh? Run that by me again?

I suppose it could be true. Maybe four World Championships really have turned him into a screaming primadonna. Perhaps what really happened is Seb leapt out of the car and started foaming at the mouth. He made a very rude gesture in the direction of Adrian, snarled at Rocky, kicked Ole in the spanners and then stormed out of the garage, saddled his unicorn and rode back to Switzerland.

Meanwhile Adrian's lost his copy of the Illustrated Junior Encyclopaedia of Motorsport and says he can't design without it. Daniel's sulking is really starting to get everyone down, Dr Marko has decided to return to his roots and become a dubstep producer under his street name DJ Graz and, after his New York residency last summer, Christian's far more interested in street art than F1 anyway.

Seb, meanwhile has sent us a postcard, and says he's really sorry for all the fuss. He'll be back soon but has decided to chill for a while by spending a couple of weeks watching daytime soaps and eating crisps 'round at Mark's house.

Maybe that's what happening. It's certainly a rumour. No one outside the team knows for sure and those inside won't say...'
