Webber didn't deserve the win in Malaysia, says Vettel

Vettel insisted that there was "no war" between the nominal team-mates and as drivers they were solely focused on the race. Vettel also said that he got a call on the radio which he did hear but didn't fully understand at that time but should have understood and that's why he apologised to the team.
