re: "I think team orders are turning it into a business more than a sport though."

it's always been a business and team orders have always been around... you and i have simply not always been privy to their existence.

There is no chance of Vettel being suspended or likely to be given any form of censure by Red Bull because as Mark has already said Vettel is always given protection by the team.

Mark wanted Lewis' situation who in-turn wanted Mark's!

Mark obeyed the order to be on the "multi 21" engine setting but Seb didn't. The his disobeying of the order is not the issue, it's the irritating orders to control drivers and the racing that is the issue. Mark was put between the devil and the deep blue sea, with a choice of ignoring orders or watching Seb sail past.

Personally, I just want the teams to let us see who the fasted men are and let them race and finish in pace order.

in evry race, if any team has comfy 1-2 then sometime team will call to hold position. no more risk, no more racing. prerve engine, not run out of fuel. sometimes call is made after final pit stop. drivers know this before race starts. if one driver ignores this, that does not mean he is faster than other.

all teams were caught by less rain. for all we know, might be redbull just as short on fuel as mercs and would not make finish line if they fought each other for last 10.

That is what is called a "lie". Both drivers were on the same engine setting.

It's fascinating to see the way a lie spread around the internet.

Pssst! Wayne Rooney is the father of Kates child! Pass it on!

Large numbers of people repeat it, and suddenly "everyone knows it".
