Red Bull vs. Team Orders: I Love you, Neither Do I
People often see McLaren as a corporate team, and any of their movements are controlled and
scanned to look like perfection. Well, today, even though McLarenâ€™s spirit remains there, Red Bull is
going even further. So much that McLaren is getting a better image out of it.
Itâ€™s true, thereâ€™s happiness everywhere in McLaren! The reigning champion asserted that he has not
been asked to help Lewis Hamilton, but conversely, he would help his teammate by his own
initiative. We know the Brit is clever enough to do such a gesture, but come on, when you know how
much competitiveness and emulation it implies when two great drivers find themselves in the same
team, you know for a fact that there is something odd somewhere. But anyway, as for today, this is
called British phlegm. The image of gentleman suits well Jenson, so itâ€™s a very sweet pill to swallow.
On the other hand, Red Bull has always pursued an ideal: the image of an easy-going team. But F1
isnâ€™t easy going. It is even a paranoiac and hypocritical world. They arenâ€™t convincing anyone with
diving into a pool as insouciant teenagers. It was much easier when the team was not chasing world
titles, but today Red Bull seems to lose ground in the communicational equilibrium they enjoyed to
You just have to look at the way in which the communication is discrediting the team today.
Yesterday, Red Bull argued that Vettel would not help Webber in the race for the title. Horner told
journalists it was wrong to do the opposite. The next day, so today, the team is thinking about asking
Vettel to support his Australian teammate. Of course, you see here how much the Marko-Horner-Tost
circle struggles to admit that they should not advantage their protĂ©gĂ©, but little by little they may well
be thinking about the title, about the feeling it would procure â€“ no matter whose driver would win,
after all! Tensions should appear at the top of Red Bullâ€™s hierarchy. Sometimes, rivalries between
drivers are not the most devastating.
