Despite being critical of Ferrari's decision to order Felipe Massa to let Fernando Alonso through to win the German Grand Prix, Eddie Jordan has called on the rule banning team orders to be removed from F1.

While the result of the race currently stands, Ferrari has been hit with a $100,000 fine and the matter referred to the World Motor Sport Council, with race stewards deeming that the team had broken the rules on team orders and brought the sport into disrepute.

Jordan was critical of Ferrari's actions in the immediate aftermath of the race and while he again hit out at the manner in which the move took place, the former team boss said the ban on team orders to be removed.

"Ferrari believe the best way to win the championship is for Alonso to be the main driver," he told BBC Radio Five Live. "But it is the way it happened. It was a nonsense and the way they handled this was appalling.

"[The team order ban] is a nonsense, it needs to be repealed. Every team has to have team orders and now they are just cloaked over as a guise. But fundamentally the regulators have to sort that out.

"It has to go the world council and it has to be signed off. Ferrari probably thought they were above that and yesterday they found out that they weren't."
