I'm sorry, but team orders are necessary. The engineers and team principals are like coaches keeping their players focused on the TEAM effort, not your OWN EGO. Without team orders, more drivers would take unnecessary risks like Seb did. Worse yet, you can have an incident worse than Turkey 2010 where drivers score nothing at all and the TEAM gets nothing as well (except for two broken cars and in-fighting between drivers). Yes, there's a Driver's Championship, but on the whole, you need to do what's best for the team. The days of unlimited engines and transmissions are over. To finish first, you must first finish, right? The engines are reliable because they're turned down toward the end of the race. Only time will tell how Seb's engine will fare when it's used again. It was quite hot and humid in Sepang. Unless the driver built the car and is funding the entry, he needs to do what he's told by the team he's driving for.
