Mark Webber is considering his future at Red Bull Racing after Sunday's Malaysian debacle but concedes it is still "early days" and "very raw."
Racing towards his first win of the season in Malaysia, Webber was overtaken by Sebastian Vettel with ten laps to go despite Red Bull having told both drivers to stay put.
In the immediate aftermath, a furious Webber accused Red Bull of protecting Vettel "as usual" while the German later apologised, admitting he "f***ed up."
But whether that holds any sway when Webber considers his future remains to be seen.
"I think it's very early days right now. It's very raw, obviously, and we need to work out how the team goes best forwards from here," said the 36-year-old.
"That's obviously going to be discussed this week. I will be in Australia on my surfboard - the phone won't be engaged.
"There were a lot of things in my mind in the last 15 laps of the grand prix, to be honest, so whether the medicine is enough we will see."
He added: "It puts a lot of heat on certain people for sure. Inevitably it does, because unfortunately there is no rewind button."
