I don't follow/know racing. Would someone explain what difference it makes; the two drivers are on the same team. Knowing only what I read in the OP's posting, seems like two dudes work for the same boss/employer/ and the boss made a decision and both employees did as instructed.

I can't say that the statement/principle the race engineer articulated wasn't communicated to both drivers before the race, thus during the race it was not interfering at all, but simply restating something that was already decided/agreed.
Sucks for the guy who came in second though, but if such an agreement existed prior to the race, had the dude who was second not yielded, he would have interfered with the race outcome.
