Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber met today with team principal Christian Horner, technical head Adrian Newey and Helmut Marko at the teams' factory in Milton Keynes. Red Bull issued a statement saying that the group held a constructive meeting and have put the incident in Turkey, where the two drivers collided while running 1-2, behind them.

Sebastian Vettel said, "The team had got us into a great position and it wasn’t good for them what happened – so I’m sorry for them that we lost the lead of the race. Mark and I are racers and we were racing. We are professionals and it won’t change how we will work together going forward. We have a great team and the spirit is very strong. I’m looking forward to Canada."

Mark Webber said, "It’s a shame for the team, as we lost a good opportunity to win the race. It’s sport and these things can happen, but it shouldn’t have done. I feel for everyone at Red Bull, at the factory and everyone involved. Seb and I will make sure it doesn’t happen again and will continue to work openly together, no problem. We have talked enough on it now, it’s done, we’re looking ahead and I’m focused on the race in Canada next week."
