We’ve refunded all bets on Aussie Mark Webber to win the Malaysian Grand Prix last night after “team-mate” Sebastian Vettel defied team orders and hogged the glory for himself.
Webber was instructed to turn down his engine and coast to victory after emerging in first place from his final pit stop in the later stages of the race.
But a selfish and typically ignorant Vettel took matters into his own hands, performing a host of risky manoeuvres to overtake his fellow Red Bull driver (luckily it didn’t end up like Turkey 2010!) and claim the chequered flag.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t know,” was Vettel’s lame explanation.
Guess what, Seb? We ain’t buying it buddy. And neither should our punters!
That’s why, unlike Vettel, sportsbet.com.au is doing the right thing and offering our Justice Refund for anyone who backed Webber to win in Sepang*.
If we were @AussieGrit, we would have done a lot more than flip the bird at 250 km/hr!
After the race, the atmosphere in the Red Bull shed was as frosty as a midnight walk through Moscow. And with speculation mounting around Webber’s future plans, we’ve opened a market on whether the Aussie will race for Red Bull next season:
Mark Webber to race for Red Bull next season?
For those punters who backed Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Daniel Ricciardo, Pastor Maldanado, Adrian Sutil and/or Paul Di Resta to win, we’ve also refunded your bet after they failed to finish in the tough Malaysian conditions.
*Offer only includes single bets placed before the start of the race and does not include multi bets and live bets. For each way bets, the win portion will be refunded.
