Red Bull denies favouring Vettel RED Bull's motorsport advisor Dr Helmut Marko has denied that the company is favouring Sebastian Vettel, despite publicly blaming Mark Webber for the crash that cost them a one-two victory. Marko (pic right) claims Webber should have given Vettel more room because the German was already a nose ahead, before he drifted right. "[Vettel] was already ahead, at least two metres ahead, and there was a corner to the left side coming, so he had to go for the line," he said. "He cannot brake on the dirt because for sure he knows what happens." Though Webber was compromised by having to turn his engine down at a time when Vettel was able to attack at full power, Marko insists both men were given an equal chance to win. "We are handling our team and both drivers in the same way," said Marko, a former F1 driver himself. "Vettel was under such pressure and if such a situation comes up -- you have to look after the team. We still could have been one-two." "We were under enormous pressure from the McLarens -- they were much faster on the straights so we had to gain our advantage in the corners. "He had to attack otherwise he would have got overtaken by Hamilton -- it would have been completely different if the McLarens were 10-seconds behind, but that wasn't the case." F1 TURKEY >> 29
