[VIDEO] Mark Webber Almost Taken Out by Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg at Singapore GP

Alonso Webber Singapore 2013 Screengrab

At the Singapore Grand Prix last Sunday, Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso were both handed down punishments from the FIA after Alonso gave Webber a ride back to pit lane following Webber’s retirement on the final lap. Both were reprimanded, as Alonso stopped in the middle of a turn to pick up Webber, who ran onto the track to be collected by the Ferrari driver, who finished second in the race. Seeing as how it is Webber’s third reprimand of the season, the Red Bull driver will be subject to a 10 spot grid penalty in the Korean Grand Prix. CCTV video from the track shows just how close both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg came to striking Webber as he hitched a ride with Alonso.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
