Always try to look on the bright side of life

Mark Webber, Red Bull Racing, 2nd position, and Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull Racing, 1st position, on the podium.

In light of all the "team order" shenanigans late during Formula One's 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix, and after all the sour faces and pathetic speeches from the podium and after all the behind-the-scenes verbal melees that ensued following what happened last weekend, one must remember to always try to look on the bright side of life.

Vettel still won the day, they all drank their wine, er, champagne, and they'll all do it again in a few short weeks when they're destined to lock horns at the Chinese Grand Prix. The race will be surely be interesting, but will the same be said about the finish? Time will tell.

Sepang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Sunday 24th March 2013. Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull Racing, 1st position, and Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes AMG, 3rd position, spray Champagne on the podium.

In the meantime, Lewis, Nico and the team at MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS recently released the first episode of "Grand Prix Insights" - a series of short films about safety in Formula One and on the road.

The first episode features MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton going head-to-head in a friendly competition to settle the question: "who really is faster?" -- and demonstrating seatbelt technology with great technical insights. It's a little ironic, and well worth watching.

And with that, I bid you adieu with this bonus clip courtesy of the good old chaps known as Monty Python. Watch it and crank up the volume as loud as it will go. Those are team orders.
