And the baseball analogy is grotesquely inaccurate. Baseball is about scoring runs. In a close game you do whatever you can WITHIN THE RULES
to score runs. Nothing even remotely illegal about sacrifice flys. TEAM ORDERS ARE ILLEGAL AND FERRARI GAVE TEAM ORDERS ON AN OPEN LINE!
Both illegal and stupid, especially after Alonso's recent tirades about leniancy shown to other teams.
Its politics inside Ferrari....they want FA to be happy so the Spanish banking SAntander can stay with the Scuderia...etc etc...
but they couldn't do it in a more subtle way and fail to admit and talks to the media and public like they're stupid pisses people off....and turns out to be a major PR nightmare again.....
its not F1 season without some controversy...
