For those posting that team orders are foolish- maybe so, but the reason for them in this situation is that if the teammates take the fight to each other they will destroy their tires, and this will make them a sitting duck for the third place car to overtake them both. This could have been Rosberg's race, both he and Hamilton believed he was the faster of those two, and if the Red Bull boys are fighting it out, their tires go over the cliff and Rosberg just sweeps through for the win. Could easily have happened. The tires control everything now that they drop off so dramatically when they are past their prime.
