Williams' support based on dislike for team orders ban

Ironically, the man who perhaps benefited most from team orders during his lengthy stint with Ferrari, including being able to recover from trailing by fully half a lap in that infamous Monza race, has said that he would be happy to have a say in rewriting the rules.

"I have a very clear position on what I think about team orders, but I don't think there is a very clear rule or comment that would clarify easily everybody's interests," Michael Schumacher was quoted by PlanetF1.com, "It needs really a thoughtful discussion and not many people spreading out ideas without any sense. So there is no point now to give you some hints.

"I would like to sit together with the right people and discuss it then, if you don't mind, and then come up with a very clear situation. This would be ideal - but I don't think I am going to be too much invited."

Well British folks, your dear British team and "eminent" Frank Williams supports Ferrari with the team orders because he knows it goes on all the time! What do you have to say about that? DON'T BE HYPOCRITES!

So, are you implying that Sir Frank Williams has sold his soul and lost all his credibility as a man and a team principal, all for some engine deal?
