'Red Bull drivers free to race'
Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz insists he will not impose team orders on his drivers, leaving them free to race each other.

With the Championship going down to the wire, Mark Webber is leading the standings on 187 points while his team-mate Sebastian Vettel is also still in the hunt, 24 points off the pace.

"We support Mark and Sebastian as always. They are free to race. As long as one of them is not out as a Championship contender, we will not interfere at all," Mateschitz told Autosport.

However, his comments come in the wake of Red Bull advisor Helmut Markos's remarks that the team would have given Webber number one status had he soundly beaten Vettel at the previous race in Monza.

The Aussie, though, didn't, finishing sixth while Vettel brought his car home in fourth place.

"Had Mark won in Monza and Sebastian retired, we would have had some discussion. But this was not the case," Marko said.
