Mr FIA is a muppet, I cannot suffer alonso but the simple fact is he was by far the quickest man in monaco, everytime lewis tried to chase him down alonso would speed off and set a fastest lap. This is why I cant understand all this rubbish about team orders, how can there be oders when the driver infront is so much quicker than the guy behind, its utter nonsence
you have race teams so dint that make it a team sport? and if its a team sport then shirley team orders are part of it. imagine another team sport with the same set of rules applied to it,I.E. football... you have the ball and instead of being able to pass the ball you have to try and score on yer own..or doubles at tennis . its either a team sport with teams or its an individual sport, in which case why do teams need to field two identical cars?
just more #$%$ thats goes towards ruining the whole being of F1. teams orders have alway been there in F1, didn't the great fangio once jump into his team mates car cos his wur fooked?
" eh! come in to the pits please lewis the spanish #$%$ needs to borrow yer car"
bernie has made the sport much bigger than it used to be before he took control but in doing so he has killed it off and made it the farce it is now.

I assume the example of JM Fangio refers to his title win in 1956, when at the last round in Monza, he got into Peter Collins's car after his broke down?
Na, they weren't team orders. All accounts for that final race clearly state that Collins -who had a shout at the title and was leading at the time- came into the pits and HANDED his car to Fangio on his own accord.
There was no radio, and drivers in those days were outright heroes. So no 'team order' conspiracy theories, please.
The irony is...
Everyone thought that Collins would be champion one day, so handing the 56 title to Fangio merely delayed his eventual crown. But Peter Collins died in a crash at the Nürburgring GP in 1958.
