I saw Webbo very vocal about the team orders issues and how he followed
those and Seb choose not to. Now I read Seb plays along and does some
apologizing. However, in my personal view, all this is just for the
show. I do not believe a second that Seb means what he is saying. He did
what he thought OK on the track. And he would do it again, if
Now, thinking back on 2012 season, I cannot help myself but thinking
*"why the hell not?"*.
In 2012 Webbo always went an extra mile to explain how his job is, first
and foremost, to drive races for himself. And how it's *not* his job to
support Seb in his efforts to win another title. He did not accept team
orders and was very vocal about that back then. In the last race in
Brazil, where everyone sane has expected him to finally drop this
attitude, since he didn't have a chance to win WDC anyway, and help his
team mate - he still refused to play by the team orders. And was vocal
about it too. I still remember how hard he made Seb's life in that race,
he really lived up to his words: by times it looked like Ferrari is
having 3 cars on the track and two of those were doing all they can to
help Alonso. Sadly, one of those was in an RBR livery.
Now, a few months later, when team orders were playing into his hands
for once, Webbo discovers his love for team orders and how wrong it is
not to follow those. And sulks into cameras: "What about MULTI 21?!".
Well, I would say "MULTI 21" went exactly there, where Webbo himself
sent "MULTI 12" a few times last year - Never Land. In my view, today
Seb decided it's a payback day for Webbo. Unfortunately for Webbo, Seb
used the same coins Webbo gave him the last season in abundance.
