Australian motorsport sensation, Mark Webber, is (or was) on fire, following his stunning performances this F1 season. Insiders including Red Bull teammate and pit crew, and a swag of insiders are now wondering if a curse stemming from the country he's racing in - Turkey, has effected his judgement, and are jokingly (we think) naming Webber 'Turkey Of The Month'. Media Man and Gambling911 rev up the situation...
Mark Webber last night secured 3rd place in (country) Turkey after a controversial collision with teammate Sebastien Vettel while the Matildas won the Asian Cup. The punters had not bargained for this and numbers are being crunched as we go to print.
Hamilton leading McLaren: 1st - 2nd
ISTANBUL: Lewis Hamilton led a McLaren 1-2 at the Turkish Grand Prix following an exciting dust up between teammates Webber and Sebastian Vettel vetoed Team Red Bull a double dip.
The Bull's daily double collided as Vettel attempted a pass along the Istanbul Park Circuit's fast section, facilitating the German into a spin, and mental spin out or of sorts.
Aussie Webber, who was leading the entire 40 laps, some how recovered for 3rd behind the cunning Jenson Button as Red Bull's pit-lane team scratched their heads.
The McLaren team also tensed up near the conclusion as its drivers exchanged the lead but Hamilton eventually earned his first win of the season, getting bragging rights, and the Brit's second top 2 finish this season... by 2.6 seconds after rain had slipped up the circuit.
Red Bull was heading for a second straight 1-2 that would have given them a huge lead in both the drivers' and constructors' standings. Neither driver was willing to accept the blame, with Vettel insisting he had the right of way as he moved up the inside, and Webber believing his teammate closed too quickly.
Webber labelled it "a disaster."
Media Man and Gambling911 labelled it "good fodder for motorsport write ups"!
Despite the incident, for the record, Media Man does not think Webber is a Turkey, despite the country of the clash, nor do we suspect a sports betting "rat".
When placing bets, don't be a Turkey, know the odds, get insider info if you can (without getting caught), bet with your head, not over it, and have fun.
