Vettel: All F1 drivers are egotists Red Bull may be claiming that all is well within the team, however, Sebastian Vettel says Mark Webber is never going to be his best friend.
Red Bull suffered another blow to their already tense team-mate battle when they handed Vettel the front wing off Webber's car ahead of qualifying in Britain.
The team's decision did not go down well with Webber, however, Vettel says that's F1, everyone driver is looking out for himself.
"The team is the priority... (but) in the end the pecking order is led by the faster man. Every driver is an egotist because you go down in Formula One if you aren't," Vettel told Der Spiegel magazine.
"The team-mate is the first you want to beat because he has the same equipment."
As for his relationship with Webber, who suffered yet another blow at Silverstone, Vettel said: "There is always a certain distance.
"We work together in certain areas to bring the team forward and to further develop the car. But apart from that everyone is focused on himself and seeks his own advantage."
