Im sorry, that's ridiculous. Keeping Rosberg behind because Lewis racing him cost him his fuel? Really? Tough! Mercedes underfueled lewis/lewis didn't fuel manage. That's not Nico's fault. You want racing.....but you think keeping rosberg behind because lewis used too much fuel is right? Make your mind up. Lewis/Mercedes dropped the ball. If lewis ran out of fuel racing Nico, then that's his own fault. he should've just waved his teammate past, Mercedes should've told lewis to let him go instead of crippling BOTH cars.Ether wrote:I think team orders on both driver and both teams (Red Bull and Mercedes) are correct. They both ordered to all drivers to Multi 21, or HOLD POSITION. Why? whether or not discussing about who is number one, I believe every teams had their own concern.. Red Bull was Pirelli Tyres concern, meanwhile Mercedes was more about Fuel insufficient on Hamilton, and also probably Pirelli Tyres.
Letting Rosberg pass in order, also means TEAM ORDERS, it doesn't reflect anything what we wanted, RACING. We saw some racing between Hamilton and Button in Mclaren, that was RACING, no team orders (maybe in some GP there was team orders). So if we hope to see Rosberg passing Hamilton, that wouldn't be for free too though, as we said, racing... IF Hamilton racing Rosberg in terms of defending on straight finish line, it would have consumed more and more fuel, which means, Rosberg podium might cost 12 worthy points of Hamilton didn't finish the race. I exceptionally could respect Mercedes call on team order this time.
In Red Bull situation, the situation was a bit different. Even the main situation or concern was more or less the same. Related to reliability issue, and tyre - unknown - situation on degradation. So, interestingly, Red Bulls are accepting Webber should be in front of Vettel because they concern about those situations. This was pretty unusual! We didn't need an Einstein to predict who will finish in front of each other if there were two drivers in front of each other in Red Bull.. We saw it so much in 3 YEARS!
judging any who disobeying team order, Vettel or Webber, okay both are having trouble on team order quite often, especially Webber. Okay, he did disobey pretty much some time ago, but the situation did not "unclear" as to Webber said that he didn't want to stop racing. He wanted to race.. So be prepare - Vettel - !! But in this situation, Vettel was in grudge telling webber to move over by saying he was faster but unfortunately he didn't! and at the final stage, Vettel was in "automatic-mind" after 3 YEARS he felt as a number 1 driver, he just racing Webber! but in terms of nothing to warn to his teammate before the fight! So, I have to say, it was a coward act from Vettel, and pretty much to say, he showed that disrespecting him is particularly reasonable, and now people already start to disrespect him as well.
May aswell just say Formula 1 is motor racing, just don't race your teammate and any team with a ventured interest with a frontrunner should also, not race each other.
