Mark Webber assured recently that “there is great camaraderie” in the Red Bull-Renault team, even with his teammate Sebastian Vettel. The German does not think the same way, and after all the recent attacks he demanded to stay out of the Australian’s commemorative video for his 200th F1 GP, in Bahrain last April 21st.
In the video, which features the testimonies of Red Bull-Renault chiefs Christian Horner and Adrian Newey, the testemony of David Coulthard, former Formula 1 team driver, and Frank Williams, among other important people in the career of Australian, we cannot see, nor hear, Sebastian Vettel.
At the last minute, the three-time World Champ demanded that his testimony was removed; in a possible reaction to this Webber decided to stay out of his winning photo in Bahrain.
After all their past issues, the relationship between the two drivers soured in Malaysia (March 24), after Vettel’s decision to disobey team orders, overtaking Webber to secure victory.
According to Vettel, the Australian did not deserve to win the race, while Webber says:
Look, Sebastian is an experienced driver. Besides, we have a common goal as teammates to make our team proud. We continue to respect each other and will continue to remain focused in wanting to make the team proud.
