@Realist “@Tetley Okay, so how might you respond to the retorts a few days about the instances in which a satellite team won a WC or beat factory guys in a race. I personally feel that people give too much credence to “team order” suppositions. It's my opinion. You're free to disagree. ” Nicely put mate. Like yourself, I’d like to see every man and machine racing the others and the best crew winning. However, I’m convinced that when big money and status are involved then there is more cloak-and-dagger stuff behind the scenes than we outsiders will ever know. That’s the nature of Management in ultra-competitive scenarios. Regarding VR46 passing CC35, I’m sure that Cal’s pit signals had shown Vale coming up fast, and Cal had realised he couldn’t prevent being passed, so he chose not to delay Vale by contesting the overtake. If he had fought with VR46, then the consequent delay in Vale’s progress would have favoured the Hondas, which Yam's management would not view benignly. Smart Cal.
