    Team orders are allowed this season, however does anyone know if Ferrari used it? Massa’s radio got active almost twice before Alonso got past him. Anyone know what was said?

    Massa had said he would help Alonso as much as he could. I don’t think it was necessary to explicitly tell him to let Alonso through.

    Does this really need an answer?

    I would think anyone who heard the radio message and then saw Massa easily let Alonso past can clearly see that was a team strategy play. Naturally, the moment Alonso could get anywhere near Massa it was always going to be the case in the current circumstances.

    We’ve already got a discussion about this going on in the race review:
