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.

"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."
