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.

    hands since one of you will be going to Ferrari Next Year!!!”

    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.

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

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

    I love that picture. Vettel clearly saying “Look, I’m in front!”

    Webber: Ey Seb, who’re we foolin with this friendly-look-alike-but-oh-so-faked attitude?
    Vettel: Hmmm… 600 million viewers out there still believing FIA was serious about not allowing teams to favor one specific driver.
    Webber: And who’s that specific driver then?
    Vettel: Go f__k yourself!
    Webber: Woos!

    Bernie: Well done guys. This will pump the media up even more. :p Now, who’s up for some cheap Canada promotion?

    The annual Red Bull “What-a mistake-a to make-a” competition was reaching a thrilling climax

    Vettel: If you close room again I’ll beat ya!

    It looks so staged and fake. I can’t imagine what they are mutering under their breaths to each other!
