How about while the FIA are in the mood for changing rules and regulations that they issue a rule that stops the said FIA from always favouring Ferrari.

As for dropping the no team orders rule at least the Fia have now come out and shown just how bent F1 really is.
Half the drivers on the grid are now number 2 drivers and never stand a chance of winning a wdc (massa and petrov for instance) and its all legal and out in the open.
So the Fia are still favouring Ferrari by dropping this rule because there the ones who use this rule the most.
F1 Bent as a nine bob note.

I cant believe they are buying into this green save the planet bullsh!t, the way its going it will destroy the sport.
I believe that a lot of the global warming scaremongering is fabricated, as scientists want government funding to keep coming their way, governments want it as an excuse to charge more taxes, and Al Gore used it to make millions with his movie. Journalists use it to fill columns and scare us.
Records show that the temperature of the Earth always changes so why blame ourselves.
The way things are going we will have battery powered F1 cars in the future, which wouldn't surprise me.

@ slightlysideways, Lol WOW. I'll just point one thing out before you head off on your hunting adventure with Sarah Palin.

Next time youre in your garage, fire up your car but leave the door closed. You'll see how harmless pollution is. Even if you don't believe in climate change, using less fuel, producing less pollution, exposing everyone to less chemicals is a good thing.

Oh and while youre debating human-spurred climate change in your garage, have yourself a healthy glass of water from your local stream/river/lake. Ignore the colour: if it's brown drink it down.

And what's wrong with a battery powered car? Performance electric cars generate torque numbers in the 1000s at ZERO RPM!!! I think that would be spectacular.

One quick question, everyone against these changes seems to indicate that the sound is everything. Why do some out there equate exciting racing with hearing loss?

Team orders spoil the sport. Yes make them legal for the last 3 races of a season if your team mate is more than 2 wins adrift simple stops teams forcing drives (massa)to pull over and soling the racing for the season

@richard

Ferrari were fined by the race stewards,Ferrari's best friend Todt and his cronies did nothing they let ferrari off and by dropping this rule they have given the green light to ferrari to let alonso past massa anytime they wish even though massa may be leading the race.
who wants to watch a race (any race any team) knowing that if a certain driver is in the lead he will have to defer the win to his team mate because he's the teams blue eyed boy.
thats not racing thats race fixing and i always thought that was illegal in europe.
I just can't understand f1,briatore and symonds are found guilty of race fixing and looked what happened to them.
ferrari fix a race (not for the first time) by telling massa to let alonso through by saying fernando is faster than you and all they get is a fine.
then you ask me how the fia favour ferrari.
wake up and smell the coffee **** please.
