team orders

The leader admitted that they had given the order to their two participants not to fight in the final stretch of the event. “Yes, changing their position or letting them compete at that time made no sense. Because you don’t earn more points and you risk losing a lot of them. So it made no sense. I am totally in favour, as you have known for these years, of letting the pilots compete. That’s what I think it’s about. This is what the fans want to see and we can’t forget them. But when you get to the final laps of the race and there’s nothing to gain from the team’s point of view, you gotta do something smart. And that’s exactly what we did.”
