Vettel had more power than Webber
Red Bull maintain they never favored Sebastian Vettel in Sepang despite confirming that the German had more horsepower than his team-mate in the closing stages.

The Red Bull saga has dominated headlines for the past week ever since Vettel disobeyed orders to hold station behind Mark Webber in last Sunday's Malaysian GP.

But instead of doing just that, the German stormed by with ten laps remaining, stealing the grand prix victory from the Australian.

However, it appears it was never going to be a fair fight as Red Bull had told Webber to cut his engine more than Vettel's.

"After speaking with Christian, it seems Mark was told to turn down the wick on his engine, but the team didn't tell Sebastian to do the same thing," Bernie Ecclestone told The Mail on Sunday.

Red Bull have confirmed the F1 supremo's claims.

"Seb's engine was turned down, but not as much as Mark's due to differing fuel strategies and tire wear," said a spokesperson. Planet F1
