No team orders say Red Bull

11:01 am on 12 November 2010

Red Bull say they will not impose team orders on their drivers in an attempt to win the world championship.

Sebastian Vettel may be able to help team-mate Mark Webber beat Ferrari's Fernando Alonso if he cannot win the title himself in the final round in Abu Dhabi this weekend.

Team boss Christian Horner says if one of them can't win but is in a position to help the other, it will be his choice not a team instruction.

The 19th and final race of the season at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina circuit will see either Alonso, Webber, Vettel or McLaren's Lewis Hamilton crowned champion after an epic championship race.

Alonso has an eight-point advantage over Webber while Vettel, who won last year's inaugural Abu Dhabi race, is 15 points behind the Spaniard.

If Alonso wins or is second, he is champion.... if Webber wins, he wins the title if Alonso is third or worse... if Vettel wins and Alonso is 5th or worse, Vettel wins the title... if Hamilton wins, Alonso must fail to score, Webber be 6th or worse and Vettel 3rd or worse for Hamilton to win the title.
