I thought the Stewards (sp?) gave them that fine (which was the MAX allowed) and the FIA can still hand out a bigger punishment


THe fine came from the FIA and the WMSC can still hand out a bigger penalty


Hopefully they do

Bernie Ecclestone has spoken out in favour of team orders after Ferrari
was fined by the stewards at the German Grand Prix for ordering Felipe
Massa to let Fernando Alonso pass.

The team took a huge amount of flak from the press for its actions, but
whether a ban on team orders should exist in Formula One was also called
into question.

When asked if he thought the ban should be lifted, Ecclestone told the Metro:
"I must confess I would agree with anyone who thinks that. I believe
what people do when they are inside the team, and how they run their
team, is up to them."

Asked whether the rules would be changed by the FIA World Motor Sport
Council on which he sits, Ecclestone said: "I don't know, we'll have to
see. It's something that needs to be discussed. As far as I'm concerned a
team is a team, and they should run it whichever way they want to run

Ex-Red Bull driver David Coulthard agrees with Ecclestone and said that
all the outrage was based on a misunderstanding of how Formula One

"Team orders happen in F1," he said in his column in the Daily Telegraph.
"They always have and they always will. Just because Ferrari were
ham-fisted in breaking the rules, does it make their transgression any
worse? I cannot believe some of the hypocrisy we've heard in the past
couple of days.

"The only way to stop team orders would be to race with one car. As
long as there are two (and some teams want three -- how difficult would
it be then to control team orders?) the rule is unenforceable.

"Team principals should be allowed to do the best they can for their
team, for their employees, for their owners. That is what they always
used to do. At some point during the past 60 years we seem to have lost
sight of that fact. The public furore is based on a fundamental
misunderstanding, which is that Formula One is about the individual."
