Surely all these 'sources' reporting this have been fed from just one source - the team. So it doesn't matter how many sources report it, they're all effectively the same source and an unreliable one at that.
The evidence I would need would be a full radio transcript, but we're unlikely to ever get that. We can follow the entire conversation that way and then interpret what happened in our own way instead of relying upon the a team that has been proven to be spreading misinformation and lies.
With the team colluding in this that would leave only the Webber camp able to deny the story. In their position would you rock the boat further and get into yet another war of words with your own team when you are trying to renegotiate your contract with said team? Also for all we know Webber may have agreed during his 'clear the air' meeting not to speak further about the incident to the media.
So no, we cannot take this as 'fact'.
Well, I cannot help it if you want to close your eyes. The team order was reported on German F1 TV channels while race was still going on and that was completely unfiltered. Marko has never changed his stance on that for one minute. So the credibility is there. You just deny it. Even Horner came out and blamed Webber in the first place. He could not openly say Webber went against team order so he used a dumb pretense to describe the case. The fact that Horner had to change his story and Marko kept telling the same for three days is a clear indication that Marko was telling the truth from the first moment of this controversy.
