Marko: No more team orders at Red Bull

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will be free to race each other with Red Bull's advisor revealing they will scrap team orders.


The spotlight will certainly be on Red Bull at this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix following the controversial race in Malaysia three weeks ago when Vettel ignored orders from the pit wall to overtake Webber.

Vettel went on to win the race, but he copped plenty of flak not only from his Australian team-mate but also his team principal Christian Horner and several Formula One pundits.

Horner has already revealed that the team will change the code for holding station "multi 1-2 or multi 2-1" as "both our drivers in the last three races have failed to understand both of those messages".

"I think we're going to give up on that code. We need to probably try something else," he told Sky Sports F1.

However, the team's advisor Helmut Marko has now gone further by claiming the team will no longer use team orders.

"Team orders won't be given by us anymore," the 69-year-old Germany's Sport Bild.
