Both drivers to blame for F1 crash says Red Bull

6:43 pm on 2 June 2010

After originally blaming Australian driver Mark Webber for last weekend's Formula One crash with teammate Sebastian Vettel in Turkey, Red Bull has changed its view and now believes both drivers should share blame for the accident.

Red Bull principal Christian Horner says the crash which robbed them of a one-two finish was simply an unnecessary racing accident.

Red Bull's motorsport adviser Helmut Marko said immediately after the race that Webber was solely responsible - sparking outrage from the media and fans who claimed it was Vettel who had turned into Webber's car as he tried to overtake him.

But Horner says all factions of the team, including Marko, now believe both drivers were equally guilty of not giving each other enough room.
