Red Bull clear the air ahead of Canada 03 Jun 2010
Following a meeting at their Milton Keynes factory on Thursday, Red Bull believe they have drawn a line under the collision between drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber during the Turkish Grand Prix.
Vettel, Webber, team principal Christian Horner, chief technical officer Adrian Newey and Red Bull motorsport consultant Dr Helmut Marko all attended the meeting at the teams UK base.
The duo collided on Lap 40 of the Istanbul Park event whilst battling for the lead. Vettel, who had been running in second when he had the opportunity to overtake his team mate, span off the track and out of the race. Webber eventually finished in third, behind the McLarens of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
The team had got us into a great position and it wasnt good for them what happened - so Im sorry for them that we lost the lead of the race, said Vettel in a statement released by the team. Mark and I are racers and we were racing. We are professionals and it wont change how we will work together going forward. We have a great team and the spirit is very strong. Im looking forward to Canada.
Webber added: Its a shame for the team, as we lost a good opportunity to win the race. Its sport and these things can happen, but it shouldnt have done. I feel for everyone at Red Bull, at the factory and everyone involved. Seb and I will make sure it doesnt happen again and will continue to work openly together, no problem. We have talked enough on it now, its done, were looking ahead and Im focused on the race in Canada next week.
