I thought I would give it a few days before adding my thoughts on the Ferrari team orders controversy. I don’t think any F1 fan has an issue with a driver moving over to help his team mate win the world championship once the maths mean he can no longer do it himself. In 2007 we saw Massa do exactly that when he let Raikkonen pass him on his way to winning the world championship in Brazil, but at this stage in the season when both Massa and Alonso are still in with a shout of the championship, it is disappointing to see, particularly after Massa had made a great start and driven well throughout.
In 2002 Ferrari got it wrong with it’s team orders and I am sorry to say they got it wrong again in 2010.
