Ferrari has been summoned to see the stewards following the German GP team orders controversy. More on autosport.com as it happens


The stewards should be seen to be doing something to stamp it out. I have a feeling though that they'll all just get a clip round the ear and a "oh you bunch of rascals" :roll::

Eddie Jordan was saying that he thinks it was the team bowing down to Alonso's wishes rather than the decision solely coming from the team. Alonso on the radio after the flag was interesting to when he asked what happened to Felipe. Alonso is very clever trying to make it look like he knew nothing about anything.

Just wondering what Redstorm's opinion is? I know he's an Alonso fan so I'm curious to see what he thinks :)

Hey, wait.. It was nothing, basic racing... :)


“I don’t expect any penalties whatsoever because Alonso was just faster and Massa made a small mistake when shifting up three gears at once,” Smedley told Germany’s Sky Sports after the race.

I feel so sorry for Massa :( he looked so disappointed and miserable at the podium ceremony and at the press conference. not one single smile....

I think it was ridiculous what happened today. It was so OBVIOUS that Massa was ordered to let Alonso pass .. goshhh!! Ferrari :<>:

well this is the result:

Ferrari has been fined $100,000 and referred to the World Motor Sport Council for team orders and bringing sport into disrepute
