Red Bull’s Mark Webber has denied reports doing the rounds that he and Sebastian Vettel “share a great camaraderie”.
In the wake of the ‘Multi-21’ team orders affair, and the deepening of the bad feeling between the Red Bull teammates, the quote was distributed at the weekend by the Indian news agency IANS.
“Call me a cynic,” said Reuters correspondent Alan Baldwin, “but (I) can’t quite believe the (Webber) quotes floating around today”.
Indeed, via his ‘AussieGrit’ official Twitter account, Australian Webber clarified that the quotes are ‘out of date’.
“Some rubbish quotes floating around today I hear, good old spin job by someone,” said the 36-year-old.
