Using Felipe as a scape goat are they? If anything he was very professional about it all. Ferrari messed up and the buck stops with Stefano. Massa had no choice but to ease off because because of the gap he had to Alonso. It wouldn't of mattered where it happened on the track, the pass would of occurred and the fans would of known it would be a team order pass.
Fact is, the press need their heads read if they think that the leading driver is going to bend over backwards and take it lying down. He is being asking to relinquish a race win, so he's going to do it on his terms. They have to accept that due to what they are asking of him. They should ask the question what would Alonso do in the same situation.
Wrong. If Felipe wanted to do it the professional way, he could have taken a corner wide, outbrake himself, etc. No, instead he decided to let him through at the worst possible spot... Felipe and Smedley let their emotions get in the way of the team's interest and for that they have to be punished.
