8 Booo Ferrari!

Anyone saw German GP today? Ferrari did it again. Shamelessly ordered Massa to let Alonso past.

I think Ferrari should be penalized seriously for that. But FIA just love them too much.

All teams apply team orders - in obvious or hidden form - as soon as only one of their drivers can compete for the championship.
Simply because a drivers' title is so important for each member of the team (except for the other driver and his race engineer).

Vettel made it clear that he would let Webber through for championship.

The last driver who refused to obey was probably René Arnoux during the French GP 1982 (at Renault with Alain Prost).

Btw: I was equally frustrated after last race when RedBull got driver's title only because of two bloody ladas blocking the road.

I was supporting Ferrari 100%. Didn't want a can of energy drink to win both titles. Especially with the cocky Vettel behind the wheel (Vebber would deserve it).

It was the best season with the worst possible outcome.

What Ferrari did in Germany was equivalent of spitting a giant spit in all formula 1 (and motorsport in general) fans.

There is no way of justifying it.

If they did that and at least admitted that it was a team order (in stead of everybody (Massas race engineer, Massa himself, team principal etc.) blatantly lying), them everybody wouldn't be so upset.

But in stead they lied shamelessly, as if we were total idiots and couldn't understand what was happening.

Ferrari once again ripped off F1 fans - the very same group who makes F1 financially feasible.

If you mess with your customers, you're going out of business.

Team orders were formally banned during 8 of over 100 years of grand prix racing, from 2003 to 2010.
The ban has been lifted now since it only led to a culture of concealment, hiding the true performance from the spectator - instead of ensuring that the team’s leading driver in a certain race would finish higher up.
Several moves from almost every team have proven this.

Really i expected a great race today but Ferrari ruined it...it was way to much...F*cking cheater scrumbags they are...they got 100,000 $ penalty...a JOKE. probabily massa was not slower than alonso
Alonso will have been on the radio crying to Luca that felipe was faster than him in the race and also in front, so Luca forced Rob Smedley to tow the company line and tell Massa to slow down and let him past. yet again they have disgraced the sport and made a mockary of the sport. $100,000 is a crap sum of money I hope the motorsport council sort them out and give the victory back to Massa or just strip the team of all points and ban them from either a couple of races or for the remainder for the season.

really a big shame...massa could do it today...or a big beatiful duel massa vs alonso..but they ruined it...they deserve a big good penalty now
