Remember Mark Webber’s controversial interview on ITV after his retirement at the Japanese Grand Prix?
It’s kids, isn’t it. It’s kids with not enough experience, and they just go and fuck it all up!
At the time, most people — myself included — thought that he was referring to Sebastian Vettel. But my brother brought up an interesting point to me today. He didn’t say “it’s a kid”. He said, “It’s kids.”
Was he laying the blame on Hamilton as well as Vettel?
His most recent comments — that “Hamilton did a shit job behind the Safety Car” — are pretty scathing about Hamilton’s role. As far as I can see, he has made no criticism of Vettel since Sunday.
Given the announcement that Hamilton is now being investigated by the FIA stewards for his role in the crash, Webber’s quote now takes on a new meaning. Isn’t it funny how most of us assumed he was just talking about Vettel when he could have been talking about Hamilton as well?
