Ferrari lost their FIA help when Luca outed Max from F1. Did you not hear Max tell of the special veto power he took from them upon leaving? And if the FIA was in Ferrari's pocket they would have gotten the double diffuser taken away from Brawn. FIA no longer caters to Ferrari.

@doris - thanks for being frank. You appear to be fine with team orders as long as the teams do a better job of hiding their use. I agree that Ferrari was more blatant but we would be on dangerous ground if the stewards had to take into consideration how blatant the team is when enforcing a rule. As it is the FIA/stewards are very inconsistent when it comes to enforcing the rules. This would just make if more so.

I am not sure if you like Indycar but it has no Ferrari and from what I can tell very little use of team orders.

Mark: "Isn't Sterling Moss held in high regard for letting Hawthorne win. Why is that not seen as team orders?"

I hear this repeated so many times, except sometimes people say Fangio instead of Hawthorne. It seems its a "well known fact" and deprived Moss of a championship, but can anyone tell me when this sacrifice by Moss is supposed to have happened?

In the case of Hawthorne, it was 1958 and Hawthorne won by one point. Team orders? Moss won the final race of the season whilst Hawthorne finished second. There is also the small matter that Hawthorne was in a Ferrari and Moss in the Cooper. What actually happened was that at an earlier race, (which Moss won), stewards were going to incorrectly disqualify Hawthorne until Moss gave evidence that cleared Hawthorne.
