TBH they should have got a bigger fine, and possible loss of constructors points (for Germany), but I'm not unhappy at this ruling, and the reactions of the other teams should be interesting. Could we see other teams using team orders?

FIA : No further team orders sanction. Can you confirm you understood that message?

I wonder if the possibility of inter-team orders is now a possibility. "Lewis, Jenson, Fernando, Felipe, Robert, and Nico; Michael is faster than you, and he'd like to silence the critics. Can you confirm you understood that message?"

Hey, maybe next they can come up with a system to allow one driver to transfer all their points to another driver! :D

Yes, the concept of having a world champion is too harsh on the other drivers' self-esteem. From now on, the driver who scores the least amount of points will be world champion.

Confermo di aver capito il messaggio !!!

This is going to live forever :lol:

It will be interesting to see if this one comes once again to bite Ferrari, just like other changes of regulations they have urged upon, the SC-rule for example. Alonso thought it was a manipulated race and demanded rules to be changed only to find out himself how they work in practice in the next race :p

I'm not even angry anymore, this is too funny :lol:

Eleanor, maybe I'm in shock here since I've always detested team orders (that's why it was a nightmare to hear Kimi go to Ferrari in 2006) but if they are that stupid then I hope all teams start using them - let's see what Ferrari says after that :p

Heikki Kulta wrote an article but this one caught my eye:

It's boiling so much inside Ferrari that Massa's race engineer Rob Smedley probably won't continue with his job. His apology via radio was the most incriminating evidence of using team orders and at the same time it was a sign that the British engineer is too fond of his driver.

Carlos Gracia, president of Spain’s motor racing federation revealed that he has spoken to Alonso, who knows “nothing” about the imposition of a team order.
