team orders allowed in formula one

well, just a quick comment.

many people will disagree, but i do believe that team orders have a definite place in formula one, and they should. after all, there are teams! and they pay the bills! so they should get to decide what should happen in a race, whenever they can.

team order yes - but you gotta know how to use it, as did red bull.

that’s the second point: teams should be smart enough to make the best decisions for business. and truth be said, that will always be the best decision for the fans. if the fans watch and love the sport, the teams will get their money – it’s that simple. absurd usages of the team order (schumacher x barichello) are bad for the sport, the alonso x massa affair this year is tolarable (not for brazilian fans, though), and if vettel had helped webber, that would have been approved by most. red bull was the smartest this year, letting their drivers fight it out until the bitter end. it was risky, but even if alonso had gone to win the title, red bull would have been the moral winners all over the globe – in terms of adverstising, that matters quite a lot.

but once again, team orders should be part of formula 1, and teams should try to be clever about using them correctly.
