Cynical Dennis dampens Ferrari success

http://www.f1newswire.net/newsboard/tpl/index.php

Ron Dennis has said in typically cynical fashion that he feels Rubens Barrichello was gifted victory in today's European Grand Prix. The arrogant McLaren boss who has long been regarded as a 'sore loser', was attempting to dampen the Brazilian's victory at the Nurburgring where he led home a formation finish with team-mate Michael Schumacher. Dennis believes that Ferrari Team Principal Jean Todt didn't dare impose team orders this time around with his team's imminent appearance before the FIA this Wednesday.

Dennis believes the team acted logically, but criticised the call which he percieves was made between the pitwall and Schumacher to instruct the German not to pass his team-mate. "They're playing to the audience," he said. "I suppose if they've got their FIA diary (date) coming up it's the most logical thing to do."

Meanwhile Ferrari Technical Director Brawn defended Rubens Barrichello and said that team orders were never an option during the race. However, both drivers were obviously instructed to slow down in the closing laps of the race in order to avoid any failures which would have prevented them from taking the superb 1-2 finish. "As far as we're concerned this is Rubens' second victory this year, we're counting Austria as a Rubens win," he commented afterwards.

Williams' Technical Director Patrick Head also believes that team orders did not play a part of the result in today's race and said that Barrichello had the pace to beat Schumacher in a straight fight anyway. "I don't think he was gifted the win," he added. "I think Rubens was competitive enough to beat Michael today."

No matter what Ferrari does Ron Dennis always finds something to complain about.
What a loser !!!

Team Orders See Schumacher In Second

Michael Schumacher was told not to overtake team mate Rubens Barrichello in Sunday's European Formula One Grand Prix, Ferrari boss Jean Todt said.

The Italian team's sporting director said the drivers were instructed to hold their positions and not risk an accident on their way to a one-two finish.

While technical director Ross Brawn said there were no "team orders", it was clear that he was referring to the sort given in Austria last month when Barrichello was told to let Schumacher past for victory.

Todt made clear that the drivers were not racing each other in the closing stages on Sunday.

"After the second pit stop we told the drivers to keep their positions and avoid incidents," Todt told reporters.
