I was going to write that.
Anyway Mark can still play a decisive role in the fight for both titles. He can only up his game in Austin and his run in Quali is actually good.
Not to be rude, but Mark Webber is useless as far as "helping out the team" is concerned. He seriously lacks common sense to be able to comprehend the matter presented to him. He has an ego problem, but lacks in subtle racing nuances to match it.
-in 2010, Vettel was at fault for running into Webber at Turkey. But, to think that he had a very WIDE open space on the right to avoid it... thus failed in his reaction time to steer Right, like we saw Raikkonen do with Hamilton in Suzuka 12. So, he wanted to be macho, and Vettel & RBR paid the price by losing a 1-2!!. If a driver is acting funny on my left, with me having 2 lanes of space on my right without losing speed, I'd move to the right. Common Sense. Also, moving right would have given him the racing line!! But nope, i'd rather my race is ruined then to give space.
-He clashed with Hamilton @ Singapore 2010, but again, was very lucky to continue. Hamilton's fault, as well as Webber's
-But then, Webber tries to muscle his way in a similar manner @ Abu Dhabi 12... not once, but twice!! It was the most ridiculous attempt at overtaking I have seen from a driver in a Top Team.
-Webber trying to be irritatingly opportunistic later caused him to crash his car with Grosjean. Really, he is behind... from onboard one can see Webber has all the time in the world to analyze his next move....
option 1- to brake, slow down & pass the crashing bunch carefully. Everyone had slowed down in any case because it was a corner, so enough time to avoid it.
option 2- full throttle corner exit, close your eyes and hope for dear lord that none of the 3, yes, 3 cars in front would be thrown in his path. This attempted move of his was just wow, and deserved what he got.
-In all that crazy driving of Webber in a SUPERIOR car, he acts cheeky with 4 drivers namely Maldonado, Massa, Grosjean & Perez
every intelligent guy like Vettel, Alonso & Raikkonen would be extra careful of...
-He also throws away points that would have made RedBull constructors champions in Abu Dhabi. What's worse, he was acting king kong on track by not letting Vettel pass, I don't know why!! Even Kimi let Massa by In China 2008, & he's a frikking World Champion. RBR had to roll their eyes and order him to Box.
-Lastly, to be of any help to your team & teammate... a driver needs to be good enough to be in front with a superior car, not go backwards getting thrashed by an inferior Lotus & Ferrari.
How can he be of any help, not that Vettel is asking him any coz Vettel must feel the same
... if he constantly gets thrashed by Alonso & Raikkonen in a inferior car ALL SEASON, and gets beaten on track by a boy starting from the pit lane compared to his 2nd grid slot.
Webber to help Vettel, no thanks... he's not capable of it... as Abu Dhabi 2010 had already proved. AD 2012 was just added proof.
