Bets placed on Webber to be refunded
25 March 2013 – A betting company in Australia has decided to refund people who placed money on Mark Webber to the Malaysian Grand Prix, with Sebastian Vettel ignoring team orders and ultimately overtaking his Red Bull team-mate in the closing stages of the race.
"We’ve refunded all bets on Aussie Mark Webber to win the Malaysian Grand Prix last night after 'team-mate' Sebastian Vettel defied team orders and hogged the glory for himself," read a post-race explanation on the Sportsbet.com.au website.
Following the controversial Grand Prix, the firm immediately opened a new bet asking if Webber will be racing for Red Bull next season. It has offered unlikely odds.
