“I used to regard him as the most intelligent and worldly 25-year-old I have ever seen racing,” fellow triple world champion Sir Jackie Stewart is quoted by the Independent. ”But not anymore.” BBC commentator and former Red bull driver David Coulthard chimed in: “You can’t cram 40 years into 25.” Red Bull is doing its best to claim it has the situation under control. Team boss Horner has called meetings with his drivers, and Marko has revealed the pair “shook hands” in the post-race engineering briefing. “We have to rebuild trust between the two of them,” he told Bild newspaper, “but from our side it is done.” Austrian Marko even appeared to excuse Vettel, ”When two alpha males are fighting wheel to wheel, they’re not listening to the radio any more. The situation got out of control.” Marko even hinted he is totally on Vettel’s side, pointing out the “risk” that both Red Bulls would be “swallowed up” by the chasing Mercedes at Sepang. He admitted, however, that team owner Dietrich Mateschitz was “not amused”. “We have made clear to Seb that something like that will not happen again. I don’t think it will,” concluded Marko.
