Taipan, You know better than what you state in your last post. Of course we all would prefer no team orders. However, they exist and in this instance Mark followed them, faithfully turning down the power to conserve engine and tires. Remember last weekend? RBR had cause for concern. He had gapped Seb until the orders came in and would have very likely won the race on pace. Seb took advantage of not obeying team orders to win the race, and brought the wrath of everyone including Horner and Newey down upon him. Thinking back, Pironi would never have been in a position to pass Villeneuve without disobeying team orders. If orders exist then drivers must follow them. The results of not doing so can be catastrophic.
