The picture, taken today, which Red Bull issued along with its latest statement

Red Bull have issued another statement which the team hopes will ‘draw a line’ under the fall-out from their drivers’ collision on lap 40 of the Turkish Grand Prix.

Mark Webber Said the pair will not allow a repeat of the collision:

It?s a shame for the team, as we lost a good opportunity to win the race. It?s sport and these things can happen, but it shouldn?t have done. I feel for everyone at Red Bull, at the factory and everyone involved. Seb and I will make sure it doesn?t happen again and will continue to work openly together, no problem. We have talked enough on it now, it?s done, we?re looking ahead and I?m focused on the race in Canada next week.
Mark Webber

Vettel added he was “sorry” about the collision:

The team had got us into a great position and it wasn?t good for them what happened ?ǣ so I?m sorry for them that we lost the lead of the race. Mark and I are racers and we were racing. We are professionals and it won?t change how we will work together going forward. We have a great team and the spirit is very strong. I?m looking forward to Canada.
Sebastian Vettel

The team may be keen to move on but they can expect plenty of questions about the state of the relationship between their two drivers and what exactly happened in the run-up to the controversial collision when they next face the media at the Canadian Grand Prix weekend.

  1. Will we make the podium in Canada?

  2. So we’re agreed then – it was Lewis’s fault

  3. The competition still runs hot as they both return empty handed from the team fishing trip!

    or… “what about… one-two again in the Mont ?”

    Looks sincere to me. No fake stuff imo. They both know they could have been a bit less aggressive since they are teammates. They will come back fighting!
    Altough Mclaren ftw at Canada!

  7. Sebastian and Mark discuss how much room is required to perform a clean overtake.

    “I wash my hands on the whole thing. See?”

    “Yeah, me too.”

    Vettel’s clearly moving his left hand across Webber while he’s alongside him.

  10. Webber: It’s still your fault.

    *Christian Horner Says*
    “Okay everyone, time to start practicing talking with your
    hands since one of you will be going to Ferrari Next Year!!!”

    *Webber&Vettel* “We didn’t-a do it”

    (I can get away with that because I’m Italian!)

    Thanks to all, your comments have made my day. This picture is sooooo easy to interpret!

  15. Raymond said on 3rd June 2010, 14:51

    Vettel: I don’t think they’ll believe this.
    Webber: We can’t let them know we’re falling apart, so shut up and pose.

  16. Webber – “you’re dead right, mate!”

    hmmm… it’s possible I put the comma one word too late…

    “Not me”
