GO TO EARLIER STORYGO TO THE NEWS INDEX GO TO NEXT STORY Domenicali hails team orders decision

By Matt BeerSaturday, December 11th 2010, 22:27 GMT
Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali has welcomed the FIA's decision to ditch the team orders ban as the end of a piece of 'pointless hypocrisy'.
Domenicali's squad prompted the governing body's re-examination of the team tactics regulation after Felipe Massa moved aside to let his Ferrari team-mate Fernando Alonso win the German Grand Prix.
The Hockenheim stewards fined Ferrari for breaching article 39.1, the rule prohibiting team orders, but the FIA decided not to impose any further sanctions and instead promised to consider amending the regulations.
Yesterday the FIA's World Motor Sport Council announced that article 39.1 would be deleted before next year - a move that met with strong approval from Domenicali.
"Finally, we have said goodbye to this pointless hypocrisy," he said during an event at the Bologna Motor Show. "For us, Formula 1 is a team sport and we have always maintained that viewpoint and it should be treated as such."
Although the specific article relating to team orders will no longer apply, the FIA underlined that it could still punish team orders in cases where it deemed that a team's actions had "brought the sport into disrepute."
Domenicali is confident that the new interpretation of the rules will ensure fair competition.
"The regulations already include points that prevent certain situations being managed in an extreme manner," he said. "The decision taken yesterday is very important."

Ah, FIA management has seen the light.

Interestingly this goes against the view of Max Mosley, who said that it was a good thing that Fernando did not win the world championship because it would have put F1 in disrepute (due to Ferrari's team order). Anyway, Max has retired so we shouldn't care what he thinks.
