David Coulthard has described the crash between Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel at the Turkish Grand Prix as "excellent marketing" for Red Bull.

The Scot, who used to race for Red Bull and who remains contracted to the firm, added that neither of the drivers was to blame for the incident.

"Tell me a driver who should come off the gas," said Coulthard. "It’s like giving a child an ice cream and then forbidding them from licking it."

Meanwhile, both former FIA President Max Mosley and ex-F1 winner Gerhard Berger have blamed Webber for the crash .

Mosley said: "At the time of the accident Vettel was clearly faster than Webber. At this stage he [Vettel] had the right and the duty to overtake. It can be clearly seen that Vettel had already passed Webber before the collision, and at that time Webber should have given him more space - especially as they were already on the far left side of the track."

Berger said: "When Vettel was half a car length ahead, Mark needed to realise that he should give his team-mate some air to breath. Webber could have prevented the accident."

LMAO

Anyway, who gives a toss about an ex F1 driver who's most famous for nearly becoming a HamBerger (of course fortunately he didn't), he never achieved much as a driver and hasn't made much impact anywhere else.

Mosley's just a nazi - all these denials are just ridiculous. What with his father and then concentration camp sex games.

Anyway, Seb should have backed off and basically not turned into his team mate. Is it that hard to understand?
