Poll was created a while ago for Mclaren... http://forums.autosp...w...=171105&hl=
Apparently 50% thought they should employ team orders around the German GP this year even though both drivers were close in points
and had a shot at the title. 11% were undecided.
I think your statement should read that 'F1 fans don't like Ferrari team orders'
I don't think that's quite true, as I remember there being multiple threads and posts in the Webber v Vettel thread after Horner asked Webber to maintain the gap all complaining about team orders.
I for one had and have no problem with Ferrari using team orders, however as the handsome op (licks hand and slicks hair back) that started the quoted thread I would advise you to look at the negatives I put down for employing team orders. I do think that employing them can have both a detrimental effect on the second driver and the team. I also believe that Ferrari now operate a no 1 drivers policy, alluded to by there statement (I'll find the link possibly from the horse whisperer) about wanting to employ one main driver and a younger driver to complement him, and that Hamilton specifically wouldn't fit into this model, and that this along with the pressure put on by Alonso's excellent performances and his politics have done much to negatively impact upon Massa's confidence, and consequently his driving.
