Yup, I saw this interview on TV and he's right. Only one person can win and teams who have tried to play it fair have lost championships (Mcl 2007) Its harsh on FM, very harsh but he should have driven away from FA if he could. I dont think Ferrari would have asked him to surrender a 10 second lead

NO NO NO MICHAEL!!! At the end of the day you are NOT there to win a championship, you are there to put on a show....an exciting all or nothing, balls in the wind show. Without the millions of fans tuning every week you and your cohorts are nothing, nobodies and you and the rest of F1 have lost sight of that. But MS is the Godfather of teamorders so it's no surprise he agrees with Ferrari. If a driver wants to be WC he should have to fight in every corner of every race right until the chequered flag of the last race, anything else is not racing it's just driving fast.

The Stewards have now set some very unhealthy Precedents.
65G for Team Orders.
5 Second Penalty, for speeding behind Safety Car.

Of course you understand it because you masterminded all that kind of shyte during your corrupt reign at Ferrari.You should stay out of this because people may start to to put your devious record under the microscope.You have form for this kind of behaviour.

Oh please!! What would the point be in the 2 drivers having it out? ..Them tripping over each other as in the previous race or doing what Webber and Co did and taking each other out! Massa was just too slow. The only sin is that they were just too bloody obvious.

Dean...who cares if they trip over one another! They should be fighting, it's called RACING. Each and every one of those teams and driver's owes his career to the viewing public who want to see wheel to wheel action. It appears you are a Ferrari fan and NOT a racing fan. That's a shame.
What the F1 cicus seems to be missing is that if they let everyone just go for it and provided more action, they would be raking in way more money through higher viewing figures and thus sponsorship...!

if you break a rule, you break a rule. if you get caught, tough. you cannot justify breaking the rule to escape punishment.
if you dont like the rule, get it changed, or go play somewhere else.

I think this is anti-Ferrari issue. I've seen a lot of teams doing exactly the same thing with no repercussions. I'ts just that Ferrari was too stupid to use codewords or to not make it that obvious.
