I think the majority of fans me included, don't want to see team orders in F1. However, Bernie and all those who think Bernie is right are ignoring the fact that F1 operates in a cost-cutting environment, where severe penalties are handed out. Rule 28.4 a) Each driver may use no more than eight engines during a Championship season. Should a driver use more than eight engines he will drop ten places on the starting grid at the first Event during which each additional engine is used. ....... 28.6 a) Each driver may use no more than one gearbox for five consecutive Events in which his team competes. Should a driver use a replacement gearbox he will drop five places on the starting grid at that Event and an additional five places each time a further gearbox is used. With rules like these,teams cannot help but use orders to bring home the cars with a minimum of wear and tear on them. Vettel is an employee of Red Bull, he is not Red Bull.
