Horner: No repeat of 2010 squabble

Horner: No repeat of 2010 squabble

Christian Horner insists his drivers will not put on a repeat show of last year's Turkish GP, which sparked a skirmish that continued for the rest of the campaign.

Fighting for the lead last season, Vettel pulled an overly-aggressive move on his Red Bull team-mate, causing the two to collide.

The end result was Vettel out of the grand prix, Webber down in third place and a heated rivalry that caused tension in the Red Bull camp for the remainder of the Championship.

And Sunday's Turkish GP could offer a repeat performance as Vettel and Webber are starting on the front row of the grid having dominating qualifying.

Horner, though, insists that won't happen.

Asked by Autosport what instructions he'll give his drivers ahead of the race, he said: "Exactly the same as the other 18 races on the calendar, they know what happened last year, and they learned from that.

"The races, strategically are a bit different these days, especially with the KERS and the DRS, and they are here to get the best result for the team and I am sure they will do the best job they can."
