Red Bull may back Webber Although they have remained firm all season in regard to the fact that they would not be imposing team orders as both their drivers, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, were free to fight each other on track until it became mathematically impossible for one to win the crown, the Red Bull Racing team have now relaxed their view and are considering putting all their weight behind Mark Webber’s bid to take the 2010 crown.
"I haven't had time to look at all the mathematics and scenarios, but it is something that we will look at pretty closely between now and Brazil,” team Principal Christian Horner said of the situation.
However, he is still unsure about counting Vettel out of the competition all together as we have all seen just how quickly and easily the situation can change.... zzzz
"As you saw in this grand prix, the championship leader changed between three different drivers at three different points of the race, and we gifted Fernando Alonso 25 points, which is obviously frustrating.”
“This championship will go to the last lap in Abu Dhabi I believe. Mark retains P2 in the championship and Sebastian has now dropped to fourth, but there is still only a race win between Sebastian in fourth and Alonso in the lead. And how many times have we seen this year the championship to and fro? So it is impossible to predict what will happen in Brazil and Abu Dhabi."
