He was holding up Kimi at that stage but a really impressive drive by big John. He's an enigma, great one weekend and shocking on others. As long as he has a solid 2nd half he'll hang on to his drive, they can't afford big parts bills on race weekends as it's not a team that exactly awash with cash at the moment.

If we *must* have team orders, as long as they aren't happening too early in the season, so be it. In this case, while I would consider it still early in the season, Grosjean is miles behind Kimi in the standings.. So it's understandable why they wanted to switch things around.

I'm not a Grosjean fan after all the chaos he caused last year, but he certainly can be quick from time to time.

His car was slower than Kimi car. Kimi will easily over take his car anyway.
If Grojean car was faster than Kimi car or same speed as Kimi car and then it will be unfair to Grojean.
Grojean car is slower than Kimi so the team order is not big deal. Team order help Kimi to over taken Grojean without risk of having accident.

amigo. did you not hear the radio calls from romain, earlir in the race, where he was behind kimi ad asking to be let past as he was faster? maybe if he had been given clearance to pass, he could have had a better chance of a win?
