Mr Controversial Stirs The Red Bull Nest

Flavio Briatore has questioned whether Mark Webber receives equal treatment at Red Bull. Banned former Renault F1 boss Briatore, making an appearance with his luxury yacht this weekend at Monaco, still manages Fernando Alonso along with Mark Webber.

The Aussie has had a far from perfect start to this years World Championship leaving Briatore to wonder is everything running as it should be between Webber's garage and runaway championship leader Sebastian Vettel.

Speaking to Spanish news paper AS Briatore states "I think that team is big enough for both drivers to have equal opportunities, Every time there is a problem, it is Webber, and although in life you have to be lucky, it's strange when all you get is bad luck."

"I believe unquestionably in (Christian) Horner's integrity, but Webber needs to be able to compete in order to challenge for the title, for the spectacle, like Prost-Senna, Maybe they think it's better to have a first driver light and clear."

"I always had a number one and number two with a chance of being competitive and working together. This works better than having a number one and number two working for themselves only. Except with Fernando and Schumacher, I never counted on one driver only,"

Briatore also went on to say if Alonso or Hamilton were in a Red Bull they would be three seconds ahead of the rest every lap.
