Not only should Red Bull sanction their driver - a 1 race suspension being the LEAST that should be applied - It should be ENFORCED in the regulations.
Now that team orders are a legitimate part of the rule book, a clear failure to comply with team orders should be considered as serious a transgression as failing to comply with a marshall or other race official.
When team orders were not legal, then political games could be played, but not any more.
Furthermore, the governing body has to take some blame for creating regulations which have resulted in teams telling their drivers to stop racing in order to preserve components on the car, not for the race, but for the races to come. Having created the situation where this could happen, they must now step up and see that the rules they have created are followed, or scrap those rules.
