While Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel have put the collision in Turkey behind them - at least publicly - others are willing to keep the pot stirring. The latest to offer an opinion is Gerhard Berger, the former owner of Toro Rosso and ex-driver.

"That Webber left him [Vettel] only the dirty bit of the track was at first legitimate," he said. "But when Vettel was half a car length ahead, Mark needed to realise that he should give his team-mate some air to breathe.

"Webber could have prevented the accident. Had Vettel been in a McLaren, then Webber could have done what he did. In that case, he must not give way."
