Mark Webber has finally started to make sense for me. After being asked by BBC Sport his feelings on Lewis-gate: The Ugly words, Mark sheds some light on the situation.

“They will be extremely well attended and the fans won’t like Lewis and probably won’t for a long time, but that’s the way they are.
