, Merc uses team orders once and apparently they've been abusing it? You must have missed last season in Hungary where Hamilton gave back a position to Bottas while still challenging for the title.

Keep on hating bruh

As if Ferrari didn't play the team game to death, when Michael was still driving for them. Just ask one Ruberns Barrichello.........

Do you not know anything about F1?

It's a TEAM sport: TWO drivers and TWO cars. There has been and always will be, (at least as long as the current rules exist), TEAM orders.

Yea, just like Prost and Senna in Aus in 88 and 89. Or Hamilton and Nico in Spain 16.

Very rarely, and I mean very, a team will have two drivers of the same caliber and let them go at it; which is awesome. But in the vast majority of cases there is one dominant driver and one not so ‘dominant’, such as in the current Mercedes team. Bottas can be quick on a given day, but he has no where near the skill level of Hamilton. As such it would be complete madness for Mercedes to cut their own throat as it were and not issue team orders when they’ve been necessary.
When the WDC and team championship is secured, then let’s see what happens.

3 place grid penalty for SV:

All over red rover??

SV will have to pass MV to get to second. That'll be fun.

Awesome indeed. Remember these legendary rivalries:
Pironi-Villeneuve @ Ferrari '82
Lauda-Prost @ McLaren '85
Piquet-Mansell @ Williams '86-'87
and even Hamilton-Alonso @ McLaren '07

Makes you realize how good Nico’s championship season was. If Hamilton wasn’t on pole Nico was. If Nico wasn’t on pole he was usually within a .1 at minimum. Bottas isn’t anywhere the the talent of Nico, let alone Lewis. Mercedes let them duke it out that season, only because Nico showed race winning pace every weekend. Unlike Bottas.
