Top 20 tweets from the Malaysian Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull took the lead of their respective championships after winning the Malaysian Grand Prix. However, the focus was on Vettel’s move over teammate on lap 44 when both the drivers were asked to hold their positions (multi-21). So, this week we’ve got 20 top tweets from the race with a focus on fans’ opinion on the same.
I think we also all now know that ‘multi 21′ means don’t overtake your teammate. Today I’ve lost so much respect for Seb Vettel. #naughty

Nico handled his situation with class. He challenged the team, and respected the decision. He’s no peddler. #F1

Of the drivers on the podium, Webber thinks he should have won, Hamilton thinks he shouldn’t be there, and Vettel wants them out of the way — Pablo Elizalde (@EliGP) March 24, 2013

Apparently Seb ignored team instructions to hold station ‘by mistake’. Think we might need to review his definition of the word ‘mistake’… — Kate Walker (@F1Kate) March 24, 2013
Vettel is not sorry for what he did, he’s sorry it looks bad. Don’t want to lose his “media darling” status

Can’t believe how many on here defend Vettel and say he had the right to go past Webber.I think he is a disgrace,doing that to his teammate. — Didi Hamann (@DietmarHamann) March 24, 2013
Webber: “Seb made his own decision today and will be protected as usual.” Boom!

Vettel now very contrite but if it gives him 4th title in November no-one will care and many will hail his champion’s mind.

So what did we learn today? That behind the smiles & the humour, Vettel is calculated and ruthless. And that’s why he’s a triple champion. — Will Buxton (@willbuxton) March 24, 2013
