Jackie Stewart in F1 Racing said : It’s clear that Ferrari broke a rule, but the only thing wrong with the rule banning team orders is the rule banning team orders. Team tactics have always been a part of F1 and, as a result, there have always been number one and number two drivers. Jim Clark was number one at Lotus, Jackie Stewart was number one with Tyrell. It will always be the same and, as a responsible governing body, the FIA should remove the ban now.
Whitmasrh “” : Even if team orders were permissable, we wouldn’t change our philosophy at Mclaren. We believe in parity between our drivers and I think that’s one of the reasons why people want to drive for this team. Although we lsot the driver’s championship in 2007, I take pleasure from the fact we continued to give Fernando and Lewis equal equipment until the end, even though it cost us a title.
JB “”: I;ve never thought team orders are the way to go. I’ve never demanded number one status in any team I’ve driven for and, as far as I’m aware, none of my teammates have either. Not even in 2003, when I was teammate to Jacques Villeneuve.
Horner”": It’s not the way we go motor racing. To set out at the start of the year with a clear number one and number two goes against everything that Red Bull stands for.
JS “”: Even if team orders were permitted, you’d only see something like we saw in Hockheinem every two, three or four years. You can’t tell a team how to run a business that turns over hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
JB”": F1 is a big business, but you can’t forget the fans. They want to see racing between team-mates; they want to see 24 guys racing – not 12. You can’t forget the fans in all this.
Hope that helps!
