Mark did exact thing in Silverstone 2011. “Of course I ignored the team (order) as I want to try and get a place”. He was told to back off of Seb who's car was damaged (by Alonso) but he kept pushing.
While team order is to hold station, i doubt Seb was aware that Mark has turned down his engine. Seb and Mark were right next to one another after Mark’s final pit stop, and Seb raced him immediately. If Mark had turn down his engine in the box Seb would have beaten him to P1 when Mark came out. Seb was flying by neck to neck on the track as Mark raced out of pit lane. So one does wonder when did Mark turn down engine.
If anyone is to be blamed it's the team. Both were on fresh tyres with 16 laps to go why hold station. Let them race til last few laps, then hold station. You don’t race to be 2nd best ESPECIALLY being the current WDC holder. Seb was already fuming earlier on cos he was backed by slow Mark into Hamilton (following team orders to stay behind 3s to save tyres).
