Cheating Bastards! Ferrari Team Orders Scandal!

Ferrari claimed a 1-2 finish at the German Grand Prix under dubious circumstaces, Fernando Alonso leading home his team mate Felipe Massa after a Ferrari orchestrated overtaking move 18 laps before the chequered flag. Ferrari have been fined $100,000 for issuing team orders but the results stands pending a WMSC meeting about the incident. Ferrari issued a radio message to Massa saying “Fernando is faster than you. Can you confirm you understand?” – Soon afterwards Massa slowed to allow Alonso to pass with Massa’s engineer Rob Smedley getting on the radio to Massa after the pass to say “Good lad. Just stick with it now, sorry.” I can’t see how this could be ambiguous in any way, Ferrari should have been excluded from the race, a $100,000 fine is a joke, that’s loose change for Ferrari. As for  Luca di Montezemolo claiming hypocrisy in F1 and the drivers (including Michael Schumacher) who criticised the team orders ban; if you don’t like the way the sport is run, get out and race somewhere else. Sebastian Vettel took the final podium place while Britons Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button came home in fourth and fifth respectively. Mark Webber finished his disappointing weekend in sixth place, Kubica, Rosberg, Schumacher and Petrov finished in seventh, eighth, ninth and tenth one lap down on the leaders.
