Team orders are bad enough when you are stopped from racing your team-mate but its obvious that Ferrari told the Ferrari supplied Sauber to stop Perez from overtaking Alonso.
Funny that within half a lap of being told to hold station, Perez makes a "mistake". How convenient.

I love this sport but it is so bloody frustrating when team politics takes over. Disgusting.

It's also odd that Perez is on the verge of joining Ferrari - possibly within the next few races when Massa gets sacked.

Also, I thought they'd closed the loophole where cars "break down" on the last lap so they can change the gear box for free before the next race yet Red Bull were blatant (but half a lap later called it an emergency).

Sort it out, Todt.

It was a bit obvious. Even the commentators were embarrased but stopped short of any accusations.

A real shame for Perez who deserved the win. Gutted for Madlonado yet again!

this is why I no longer watch the sport.. it's getting nearly as bad as wrestling for having staged results...

Even though the team orders and some of the bullshit spoils the sport, i actually enjoyed the race today.

In 1972, Roy Bergiers scored that try and said "that was for you lofty"

Agree totally Abbey! I think Perez made the 'mistake' as he realised that his 'win' was being taken from him! As for Todt do you really think he'll penalise Ferrari?
