Vettel should help Webber - Red Bull 80hat

Red Bull technical chief Adrian Newey says Sebastian Vettel should do all he can to help Mark Webber become world Formula One champion on Sunday if the German finds himself out of contention.
Newey says that having won the constructors' title, Red Bull needs to try to add the drivers' championship at Yas Marina in the final round.
Webber is eight points behind Ferrari's Fernando Alonso in the standings, with Vettel 15 points back while McLaren's Lewis Hamilton has a slight chance of winning the crown.
'We've always said we would leave the drivers to it. It's a drivers' championship, and that's how it should be,' Newey said.
'We would honestly like to win both (titles) if we possibly could, and if we're in a position where we can win the drivers', that is what we must do now.
'Ultimately, if one of the drivers is out of it, then I hope he would be magnanimous enough to help the other.'
Despite the tension between Webber and Vettel this season and accusations Red Bull has favoured Vettel, Newey feels the team has been even-handed with both drivers.
'They have pushed each other hard, which is good, a little bit too hard once or twice, but overall we're very happy,' he said.
Webber put a severe dent in his chances when he crashed out of the Korean Grand Prix and lost his points lead, but rebounded with a second place in Brazil.
However he now must win the race in Abu Dhabi and hope Alonso finishes worse than second to become the first Australian since Alan Jones in 1980 to win a world title.
