Jun.7 (GMM) In future, Red Bull drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel will not prevent the fastest RB6 from overtaking.

That was the revelation on Monday of the energy drink’s motor racing consultant Helmut Marko, who had earlier pointedly blamed Webber for the now famous Istanbul Park crash.

But he told the Italian website that the issue was “solved” at last Thursday’s clear-the-air summit in Milton-Keynes.

“The two drivers can still freely battle, but they always have to let through each other. That was the conclusion,” said the Austrian.

    The one principle learning opportunity Marko should have experienced was to keep his flapping mouth shut. He’s joining the ranks of Max and Flavio about least credible F1 personalities.
