This is one of the big reasons I prefer Indycar to F1.
Couldn't imagine Vettel being ballsy enough to make the same move Hinch did at Mid Ohio. I can imagine him crying that everyone is in his way.

He's totally right about the primadonna drivers in the last few years. Vettel, Hamilton and Alonso are particularly whiny when someone has the temerity to pass them.

What if your manager intentionally gave you the shiat engine, on the last race of the year, and in order for you to win the title you only need to finish ahead of your teammate(s), plus a gorilla is eyeing up your pocket of delicious blueberries?

Given some of the moves Vettel has made in his career? He'd do it.

Is he talking about Hamilton?

Actually, I think he's talking about Rosberg, who called his team manager to tell Hamilton to let him pass.

This coming from the manager of the guy who's team had Barrichello literally pull over to let him win....

He's not wrong about a few things, but seriously complaining about team orders when your driver was the reason they got banned in the first place is kinda stupid.

Vettel might not but then there has always been questions about his ability to race (he can drive a fast car fast).

Now Alonso, Hamilton and a couple of others would have done that with ease.

He mentions Senna as those who respond on the track, but I seem to recall him being so furious that Eddie Irvine had the temerity to unlap himself that Senna punched him after the race. Also I can't imagine Schumacher never demanded anything from his team-mate, given how it was because of them that rules against team orders were brought in to begin with.

Senna : I overtook you! And you went three times off the road in front of me, at the same place, like ****ing idiot, where there was oil. And you were throwing stones and all things in front of me for three laps. When I took you, you realised I was ahead of you. And when I came up behind Hill, because he was on slicks and in difficulties, you should have stayed behind me. You took a very big risk to put me out of the race

Jeez, somebody get this guy a whaambula... oh wait.
