Jacques Villeneuve: Sebastian Vettel wrong to ignore team orders
Ex-World Champion says German can't now count on any Webber help

Vettel, 25, overtook his Red Bull colleague to win last Sunday's race despite both drivers being instructed by their team to slow down and preserve their positions.
Villeneuve's father, Gilles, was killed in an accident in 1982 while trying to beat the qualifying time of then Ferrari team-mate Didier Pironi after the pair had fallen out at the previous Grand Prix at San Marino when the latter defied team orders to pass the former on the final lap for victory.
Jacques Villeneuve told Auto Bild: "It's easy to make excuses but in the end, Vettel's got the win and the points. Mark has nothing. It was a deliberate decision by Vettel.
"The team give you the contract and pay you the money, and so you do what they want you to do. It's very simple.
"Ignoring is just plain wrong. The best example is my father and Didier Pironi. Just look at the problems that caused.
"(Vettel's) behaviour was just stupid. Such negative energy does not help the team. If he now needs help from Mark, he cannot be sure he will get it."
