This race last year

india Updated: Nov 26, 2011 18:11 IST

Team orders were the hot topic of discussion after last year's Brazilian GP but Ferrari, the usual suspects, were not the focus of the discussion. Red Bull Racing and a message from the Red Bull pitwall to Mark Webber had everyone accusing the championship winning sqaud of favouring Sebastian Vettel over the Aussie who was, at that point, in a far better position to clinch the drivers' championship.

Webber was asked to not go after Vettel who was never more than 4.5 seconds ahead of the Aussie because his tyres were overheating. The conspiracy theorists went into full attack mode and Webber went into the last race of the season trailing championship leader Fernando Alonso by eight points instead of one.
