Jul.3 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Sebastian Vettel has shrugged off explosive claims made by his former Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.
In his newly published autobiography, retired F1 star Webber slammed the quadruple world champion’s “arrogance”, revealing Vettel even threatened to sue Red Bull in the wake of the so-called Multi-21 team orders affair.
“I really don’t care what Mark has to say about me,” Vettel, now at Ferrari, told the German newspaper Bild.
“Everyone has the right to his opinion.”
The 27-year-old also bristled at Bernie Ecclestone’s recent claim that, due to his low profile, Vettel is bad for business.
“Sadly, I am not part of that generation, such as Senna, Prost, Piquet and Lauda, who didn’t have to listen to this sh*t,” Vettel reportedly smiled to the Daily Mail newspaper.
“If you told them what to do, they would give you the ‘fu*k off’. I stopped playing backgammon — maybe that’s why Bernie said what he did,” he added.
