Stupid Red Bull would rather lose than use teamwork
Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz has said he would rather both of his drivers’ miss out on the F1 drivers’ title this year and lose ‘under the correct circumstances’, than resort to Ferrari tactics and the imposition of team orders.

Red Bull Racing have tried to maintain a policy of equality throughout the season - albeit not always successfully - and yesterday Team Principal Christian Horner said it would be up to the drivers’ to decide if they help one another in Abu Dhabi.

Now Mateschitz has reiterated that the Milton Keynes-based outfit will not manipulate the result of this weekend’s season finale.

"To interfere with the drivers was never a possibility for us," he told Autosport. "The whole world condemned Ferrari after what they did in Hockenheim, but we have turned out as idiots because we did not act in this way.

"We never even thought about it as long as both our drivers remain in the hunt for the championship.

"It is not assured that [Fernando] Alonso will always be the lucky one. Abu Dhabi will be incredibly exciting and provide highest tension.

"Sunday night we will know if we clinched the other 50 per cent and have been successful or not.

“A second place under correct circumstances might be better than a win on grounds of orders and confirmations."
