A warning to Vettel and Red Bull: "learn to lose gracefully"
Anyone who saw how much debris Jean Eric Vergne spread around Valencia in his silly attempt to return to the pits after his attack on Angry Bird Kovalainen's right front wheel, certainly would agree with the stewards decision.
But not Mr Marko and Herr Vettel, more than happy to pick on poor Karthikayan but whose sense of humor fails when things don't go his way. Vettel is quoted saying that race control's decision was to clean the track but also to break Red Bull's legs. Marko, as we mentioned before, claimed it was an American style artificial ploy to make the race more interesting.
That was too much for Hans Stuck, president of the German Motorsport Federation (DMSB) who invited Vettel and Marko to think before they speak: "Vettel should learn how to lose, it was clear that there was a dangerous condition on track and there was a real risk of punctures. The stewards made the correct decision"
