Massa spoiled Vettel on purpose
Did Massa spoil Vettel's qualifying lap?
(GMM)  Red Bull's Dr Helmut Marko has hinted Felipe Massa deliberately impeded Sebastian Vettel at the end of qualifying in Korea.

Vettel's last Q3 run was indeed interrupted by Ferrari's Massa, but the German - who ultimately qualified second behind his teammate Mark Webber - initially blamed his engineer.

"Why did you not tell me about Massa?" Vettel shouted to his engineer Rocky on the radio.

Vettel told reporters afterwards: "These things happen, it's not Felipe's fault at all.  If anything it was my mistake."

Outspoken Marko, however, hinted he sensed Massa was playing a team role to boost Ferrari's number one Fernando Alonso.

"Massa was out in front of him with new tires and a good pace and then he suddenly stopped his lap," he told the Austrian broadcaster ORF.

Vettel, however, is adamant he just wants to move on.

"I don't like all these discussions; we've had a lot of them lately," he said.
