Team Orders Will Be Legal From 2011

The rule prohibiting team orders will be banned from the 2011, the FIA announced on Friday.

After a meeting in Monaco of the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC), the sport’s governing body said the controversial article 39.1 is deleted from the rules.

The regulation introduced in 2002, came under the spotlight this season, when Ferrari was penalise $100,000 but otherwise escaped without sanction for switching the order of Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso by issuing a clear radio message.
Now, teams simply face the prospect of bringing the sport into disrepute according to the standard article 151c and any other relevant provisions will apply to their actions during grands prix.
