Red Bull’s Helmut Marko is a Stupid Moron!

Formula One team Red Bull’s racing adviser has said that ace driver Sebastian Vettel should be feeling aggrieved, instead of his teammate, Mark Webber.

I have no malice towards Vettel says Webber

Mark Webber says he holds no grudge against Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel over the Silverstone front wing affair, and never held the German responsible for any part of the furore.

David Coulthard: Mark Webber airing his dirty laundry in public is risky strategy

There are two ways of running a race team. You can either go the Ferrari-Schumacher route, with one driver openly backed over the other. Or you can go for an equal partnership. The first is the most effective way of winning a championship but morally dubious. The second is the fairer system but is incredibly…
