First of all ruthlessness is not necessary for greatness. Secondly yesterday that was nothing bud poor awareness and sloppy driving, not ruthlessness (unless he wanted a DNF).
, come on. By the time they touched Seb was at least 1m from his initial position. He kept his wheel slightly to the right for about a second before they collided. That was 1 second too much. Webber had every right to go straight. Nobody forced Vettel to squeeze into that 2m corridor between Webber's car and the edge of the track. He chose do go there.
Btw, that doesn't mean Vettel is overrated. He's not known to be perfect and very sensible in using his opportunities. He's known to be extremely talented.
So what if he was 1m from his original position. He had the inside, he was ahead. It was HIS corner. Webber had to back off. He didn't and maintained the squeeze on his TEAMMATE which was a bonehead move since if it had continued both could have been out of the race. Webber is very lucky it worked out for him but it is 100% his fault.
Seb said he lost control. Thsats usually what happens when an open wheeler touches another open wheeler. Vettel made a great move and was rewarded by being shafted by his teammate.
Webbers tactics are as boneheaded as that Montoya idiot from a few seasons back. Ron Dennis had balls, he fired that twit. Horner should do the same, fire Webber.
If Webber concede the corner, the he would have had 2nd, instread he booted his teammate out of the race and got demoted to 3rd.
If Red Bull loses both championships again, I don;t think Webber will find himself in the other RB7 next year. Deservedly so. i think a few good races has gone to his untalented head.
