September 2014 : Team orders in Formula 1 has been a hot topic recently. In light of the collision between the Mercedes drivers and all the instructions that we hear from the pit wall that have been seemingly ignored recently by Lewis Hamilton, it’s a subject that people have varying opinions about. In both Budapest and Monza, I think Lewis was absolutely right to ignore the pitwall and keep pushing on. Although he’s part of a team, Lewis is fighting for the Driver’s World Championship and sometimes he has to be selfish and then deal with the consequences later. Mercedes meanwhile should be applauded for letting their drivers race and fight it out despite the odd skirmish which cost them a win at Spa.
