Red Bull will not issue any more team orders this season, according to motorsport advisor Helmut Marko.

The outfit has come under pressure for asking Sebastian Vettel to remain behind Mark Webber during the Malaysian Grand Prix through the use of a coded message.

"Multi-21 means car two ahead of car one. Multi-12 means car one ahead of car two," explained team principal Christian Horner.

He added "It's not complicated. It's not that difficult to translate, but both our drivers in the last three races have failed to understand both of those messages. I think we're going to give up on that code."

Marko, who is team owner Dietrich Mateschitz right-hand man, admitted the billionaire was "very pissed off" with the use of team orders and told Sport Bild that "team orders will no longer be used."
