Mark Webber, in his words, is pissed off by any criticism that his Monaco victory might be tainted by the FIA’s ruling that holes in the Red Bull car’s floors were illegal.
He’s defending the victory, strongly.
“I’m happy to be called lots of things and I’m happy to have criticism about my driving and lots of stuff, but I will not take criticism in that respect,” he said. “It completely pisses me off to be honest, because the car has passed every single – every single – technical regulation after the race.
“All of the teams that were against it did not make any protest after Monaco, the car passed the test after Bahrain, the car passed the test after Monaco and now there has been a clarification on the rule, and the rule now is different and we had a car that was legal for the first part of the season and now the rule has been changed and we will start again.”
There you go. That was then, this is now.
Shall we say that how he does in Canada can help settle any debate? He was fifth in the first practice.
