    I don't know why we are shy using team orders when our rivals are more than willing to do so every race?!

    Kimi will just sit there now. I hope the team replaces him next season. He has been useless since 2008

    Kimi is absolutely useless, even when Bottas makes a mistake he can't profit from it as he's too far back.

    Why did we not have any US available, could've changed Seb's front wing as well.

    FIA is a joke. They gave a Ferrari penalty for just crossing the pitlane line, and for what Hamilton did, they closed their eyes. Its a JOKE

    No it really isn't. It's what a team intent on winning does. If the team had told Kimi to let Seb past 6 or 7 laps earlier than they had, Seb may have built up enough of a lead that he didn't need to push at all in the wet which may have avoided the situation. The team need to get over the fear of putting in place clear team orders.

    Seb was the lead driver, had an alternate strategy and his race was compromised because the team were too afraid to tell Kimi to move over.

    Mercedes will be hoping for more wet races now.

    Welcome to the new and improved F1. Where everyone is allowed to become champion, if their name is Lewis.

    Can't believe what happened. It all started from not covering Hamilton's pitstop by Kimi. Though I doubt he would have hang on. Seb ed it up today.

    Mercedes team orders, yeah, racing at its finest but it's Ferrari that's criticised.

    Why? Vettel was really quick until the mistake. I don't think Merc is faster in wet.

    Our current pitwall not ruthless enough. Remember Fernando is faster than you? Our current pitwall more worried about driver feelings than the actual result.

    They will keep Bottas 5 sec behind in case of a penalty

    Exactly what I thought. We are back to our bone headed strategic moves. I surely hope this will not fire up Lewis even more.

    Any team orders from any team is low. Said it when Ferrari did it, look through the thread

    A day when we should have wom the race, Merc end up 1-2. A points swing of about 40 points from Seb to Ham.

    MA needs to be a bit bolder and make critical calls sooner, fair play we want to play fair but we need to remember the goals WDC and WCC. Mercs are not shy about usimg team orders

    I honestly don’t understand your rant. There’s no penalty for that if no advantage gained. Cutting the white line on pit exit is illegal as per rule book

    He had almost 10 sec when he hit the wall. How much do you need? It was a silly mistake. Hope it doesnt happen again

    Should have won here and hungary too and we all could have had a nice summer break leading both championships. We wouldnt have been in this position had Ferrari swapped them earlier.

    Advantage gained?

    THe guy clearly goes towards pitlane and the CUTS the road to get back in, are we forgetting people getting penalties for barely touching the white pit lane line?
