Mark Webber Called Sebastian Vettel A "Kid Who Fucks It All Up"

At the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix, his sixth F1 race, Sebastian Vettel rammed into Mark Webber's car, taking them both out of the race. The characteristically blunt Australian wasn't happy-and was yet to learn how quickly kids grow up.

This is what Webber said after the race:

Well, it’s kids, isn’t it? Kids with not enough experience, doing a good job, then they fuck it all up.


In 2009, Vettel joined Webber at Red Bull, finishing second in the championship, ahead of fourth-placed Webber. Last year, at the Turkish Grand Prix, he looked like his rookie self when he repeated his move on his now-teammate, who had been leading the race, taking himself out of the running and punting Webber back to third place. Then, in a sudden end-of-season renaissance, the kid with not enough experience suddenly grew up and pipped Mark Webber to the title, becoming F1’s youngest-ever world champion. Well, it’s kids, isn’t it?
