Webber left fuming after Vettel ignores team instructions

Sebastian Vettel was left to apologise to Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber yesterday after defying team orders not to overtake the Australian as he went on to win the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Having already asked his team to make Webber move, Vettel, above, overtook him with 13 laps remaining, despite the pair being told to hold the positions after their final round of pit stops.

"I did a big mistake today," the German said. "I didn't ignore the order on purpose, but I messed up in that situation. I took the lead from Mark, which I can see he is upset about, but I want to be honest and apologise."
