Ferrari did everything right in this case. Drivers are racing for the team. Team orders are allowed for purpose, not for not being used. If they achieve success in this race, it will be fantastic!:)

If you think this is the right thing to do then you would have been ok with the last time alonso needed this kinda help and his team mate crashed into a wall for him

Here here all this whinging about Ferrari. They made the right decision, what matters is the championship, nothing else like ethics and sporting blah blah.
If Alonso wins the championship he will be forever more noted as a 'triple world champion', not 'triple world champion*'
*but he won his third one after his teammate was sacrificed at a race.
And if he lost the champ because of them not doing this ppl would still be complaining

That was a different situation. In Singapore 2008 it was a violation of rules. In this case everything is legal. Otherwise we may blame Red Bull for interpreting technical rules in their favor as well. But we don't.

Legal or not it's not right. It's an absolute abortion of sporting spirit to behave in this way.
Those cretins at Ferrari should be at the very least banned from competing in this race.
Absolutely no morals whatsoever. Filthy cretins the lot of them.
