Mark Webber reveals his disappointment with teammate Sebastian Vettel, who beat him to claim victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Mark Webber has revealed his disappointment after losing the Malaysian Grand Prix to Red Bull teammate Sebastian Vettel late on in the race.

Webber claims that he was told to ease off by his team as Vettel went on to secured the win.

Red Bull told Vettel and Webber to hold their positions with the former in first and the latter in second, although the German went on to challenge and won the race.

Webber believes that Vettel acted in his own interests and claims that he will receive protection despite going against orders.

"After the last stop the team told me the race was over. We turned the engine down to go to the end," Webber told reporters.

"The team made a decision which we always say before the start of the race is how it's probably going to be: we look after the tyres and get the cars to the end.

"In the end Seb made his own decisions today and will have protection as usual, and that's the way it goes. I'm disappointed with the outcome of today's race."

Red Bull have been accused of favouring Vettel in the past, something that has reportedly caused disharmony within the team before.
