“Mark is too slow, get him out of the way. He’s too slow.”

F1 Racing - - RAGE - 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix

If the wheels came off in 2010, then the Malaysian Grand Prix of 2013, fixed in the mem­ory thanks to Red Bull’s catchy mnemonic ‘Multi-21’, is the one where the reat­tached wheels came off along with the hubs, the up­rights, the teth­ers and wish­bones. The great thing about Vet­tel’s com­ments be­fore he con­tro­ver­sially passes Web­ber, is his tone of voice: he tries to con­vince his team to let him at­tack by sound­ing thor­oughly bored when he raises the is­sue.
