I actaully agree... unless you have first hand experience in design, manufacturing or driving of an F1 car you probably don't understand as much as you think you do...

... and I am willing to bet the back room politics of F1 are pretty tedious as well...

This qualification season was done at the new FIA interpretation of 10% throttle opening when the driver lifts off.
Originally Renault found out that Mercedes was given a concession of 68% throttle opening on lift off, they themselves (Renault) got a concession of 50% throttle opening on lift of.
When Renault objected to Whiting about the Mercedes being allowed 68%opening Whit marsh complained that they will have to change back to 50% opening, whereupon the FIA decided to stick to the original 10% opening.
The entire debacle is all of the FIA making, they should have implemented their interpretation before the season started and not half way through, they was wrong to start giving concessions, they should have stuck to their 10% opening.

Team orders are not illegal. But Red Bunk has said they would never use them. Oops they lied. Typical. This should help richard understand that Red Bunk DOES use team orders for Vettel.
