...Employed to win for the team, not for himself ...and to win two titles (drivers and constructors), not just one race. The *team* were winning the race, but he ignored that and did whatever he wanted (or rather couldn't control himself and do what he was told to do), ignoring his employers and the bigger picture. If *his* goal was to win *that* race, then he obviously achieved it. If his goal is to win another driver's world title, then he might just have been a little short sighted. His job has probably actually been made a little more difficult, despite the extra points.

If Colin Chapman , Jim Clark, Graham Hill, et all, are looking down on this. I'll bet they are having a really good chuckle.

Colin Chapman's onion was, the car should last enough to Just, finish the race.

Simple if you are contracted to someone you sign up to obey the boss end of story on that one.
Webber has pushed the rules before but not broken them the same as nico last gp he was pushing very hard at lewis but did not break the rules . Team orders have always been in F1 is a fact that any lover of the sport knows . This was seb having a brain fade is all as on average except for some tracks where webber is very very good but over all seb is better on a lot more tracks

Watson is what the locals in Glasgow would call a Fan - nie

He has an agenda, at least Lauda has licence to talk nonsence as he's a much respected F1 WDC... unlike Wattie.

if racing is a team sport then the rules need to be changed ....why have a drivers championship, your team mate is the most important car to beat... if you want a team sport go play football......race hard or go home pussies

@"Team orders have always been in F1 is a fact that any lover of the sport knows ."


Any lover of the sport also knows that team orders are widely ignored by drivers, that team orders are widely disliked by fans, and that drivers who ignore team orders are normally applauded by the fans for their actions.
