Nice attempt at spinning a story Crash. The BBC reporter asked if the legalisation of team orders was useful to Ferrari. He answered that it was useful for everyone (ie. equally) to avoid the implication the rule change was made to favour Ferrari.

So were the extra points better used for Alonso by keeping him in contention for a championship he lost by a fluke or Felippe's middle of the pack efforts. Pretty obvious answer

jenson sounds like ron dennis, additionally alonso usually beats his team mate which is more than can be said for jenson, jb will get the call or have to pit due to 'uncharacteristically' trashing his tyres at some point this year
