Thing is that switiching drivers around does not necessarily increase your team points unless say you are running 2nd and 3rd and the driver who is favoured can go on and overtake the leader, so in reality, team orders are first and foremost to favour one driver over another and not the team.

Engineer: Jenson, save fuel! Jenson, save fuel! You get me?

Lewis: Guys, will he overtake me? Guys...will he...

Engineer: Nah! He won't. I've told him to save fuel. He's not very happy about it, but he knows his place.

Jenson: I ain't happy about this! This isn't fair!

Engineer: Tough! Get on with it! Save fuel!

So, as F1 is apparently a team sport - and has always been according to the honest (not!) Ferrari team - presumably there should be no individual drivers championship?!
That would have a major downsizing effect on spectator numbers:-)
