I think the FIA is being a little harsh as I don't think Seb has been any more a disappointed spoiled brat than many others...
Sebastian Vettel has been warned by the FIA, that he should re-consider his manner when not winning.
In 2010 and 2011, Sebastian Vettel´s finger was everywhere and the grin on the young German´s face got wider and brighter, as the titles came closer. But in the face of adversity, Vettel is portrayed as a sulky teen, who hasn´t been allowed to borrow daddy´s car.
After the European Grand Prix in Valencia, in which Vettel retired, he was clearly not happy with the result. After climbing out of the cockpit of his car, the 24-year old threw away his gloves and looked very angry. After the race, he commented that the safety car was brought out to disrupt his race, and even went as far as saying, that he suspected a conspiracy. This comment has angered many fans especially after Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko agreed that he thought a conspiracy had taken place.
Last Thursday, the Kölner Express, a Cologne-based tabloid, reported that Vettel has been placed under a sort of probation for his comments.
“We know that, quite often, Vettel tend to use a rough tone after a disappointment. He is not a good role model, because of this,” said an unnamed FIA official.
There are two things in this world that take no skill: 1. Spending other people’s money and 2. Dismissing an idea.
