Would they have asked Mark to move over, or would they have let Mark keep the win?

The treatment of Webber this season absolutely stinks, from the team blaming him in Istanbul, to the team taking his wing and putting it on Vettel's car in Silverstone, to the ridiculous decision today.

Of course not, only if they were completly stupid. And even if they did no way Webber would give his position to a team mate which is behind him in the championship.

In that situation, they would have undoubtedly asked Webber to move aside.

Based on his behavior this season, Webber wouldn't have complied anyway. But yeah, I think they would have asked. The more interesting question is:

If it is Vettel, Webber, Alonso going into the last lap at Abu Dhabi, will Red Bull ask Vettel to let Webber through (giving Webber the title)?

Question was if the situation was reversed :confused:

No, because despite all the paranoia they have done everything this year to treat Webber equal

Like when they immediately blamed Webber for Vettle driving into him at Istanbul or when they took the last remaining upgraded front wing off Webbers car at Silverstone and put it on Vettles, yeah completely equal treatment that.

Yeah, that´s a lot of points (0 by my calculations), much more than reliablity problems Seb had all through the year.

They wouldn't ask him to move over, but they would try anything possible to get Vettel infront. Whether that's a advantage at the pitstops (which he always has anyway) or with an Istanbul-like overtake, is irrelevant.

yup, they blamed him and as far as I am concerned they where right, and the wing thing has been explained to death, they had solid reasons for it. You just seem to not focus on Singapore and Hungary were they had a great oppurtunity to screw him without anyone being able to blame them, yet gave him great strategy to help save points. Great examples of equal treatment
