Mark Webber is not ready to concede to teammate Sebastian Vettel just yet despite a gap of 63 points between the two Red Bull drivers with four races remaining in the season.

The Australian won’t yield to help the championship leader to pull away from chief rival Fernando Alonso at the Indian Grand Prix this weekend, insisting that his aim was to simply win.

"This weekend, if I have a chance to win the Grand Prix I'll go for it," Webber said. “If I am in the lead this weekend I won't pull over for anyone."

Team orders are legal in Formula 1 but Red Bull has given no indication whether it will impose them despite the close-fought championship, which gives Vettel the opportunity to clinch his third successive title.

“I had lots of questions asked before the last race, different questions with different scenarios and so on, all about team orders. My answer was always the same,” Vettel said. “We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.

“I don’t like talking about these things because there are probably a million different scenarios and ultimately it will always be different to what you think,” he added.
