Webber and Alonso mock reprimands on Twitter

Sep 24, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso don’t think much of their Singapore Grand Prix reprimands and have said as much on Twitter.

The pair were reprimanded after Alonso stopped on the track to collect Webber following Sunday’s race.

Alonso referenced the ‘taxi’ row with this Tweet:

While Webber pointed out that Derek Warwick, one of the stewards who gave him the reprimand, had himself had such a ‘taxi ride’ in the past:

Webber also responded to the explanation given for his reprimand, which was that he’d entered the track without gaining permission from a marshal. Some reports claim he was specifically forbidden from going onto the track.

“Contrary to reports, there was no interaction at all with any track officials after we put the fire out,” said Webber, who retired from the race on the last lap with an engine fire.

“For [Alonso] and me to receive reprimands for our actions after the race it is comical to say the least,” he added. “Great moment, and fans loved it.”

    The big fuss and punishment is pretty ignorant IMO.

    The employees are not allowed to act as human beings and help each other.

    All employees must wait for a suitable ride back or walk.

    We cannot allow people to help other people.

    Remember to go in the back door to the pits as you walk back too.
