The warring Red Bull teammates Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber need to be quick with their patch up work or otherwise close compatriots McLaren could surely use the situation to their advantage.
There have been talks about indifference between the two teammates as well as an internal division and in such a situation, the Red Bull outfit will definitely find it difficult to come up with positive results in Canada. The positive sign is that the supposed culprit Webber has shown intentions to patch up as he mentioned – We’ll probably have a difference of opinion about what happened until we go to our graves, but we’re both adults and we need to find a way of racing together. If the two cannot manage to get their relationship back on track, they won’t be sharing information as much at the next race and that, as per Jenson Button will benefit McLaren hugely.
It was Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso from Ferrari who were amidst similar controversies (though, because of different reasons), but now Red Bull partners Vettel and Webber have divided the team internally. Such talks have surface after the Turkish GP debacle which saw Lewis Hamilton draw the advantage home.
Red Bull tea management spoke about Webber’s fuel-saving engine setting which clearly indicated that Red Bull wants the younger Vettel to win the 2010 title. However, Dr Helmut Marko is denying any internal division as he mentioned that both the drivers were being handled in the same manner.
33-year old Webber is now the clear title leader even though Red Bull may want Vettel to be crowned champion. Meanwhile the Ferrari boss had a word to say about this ongoing internal spat as he mentioned that Red Bull management was trying to create tension between Massa and Alonso and interestingly, Red Bull is now facing the same situation in its camp.
