in the old days (silver arrow era), when the #1 driver wasn't leading, they called him into the pits, and had him swap seats with the one driving in frontI was livid at Austria 2002, but team orders have been with the sport since the start and nobody blew a head gasket back then.
Autosport said:The Hispania Racing team mechanic injured during the Italian Grand Prix is still under observation in hospital.
The mechanic was injured when he was hit and knocked down by the rear right tyre of Sakon Yamamoto's car during a pitstop at the Monza race.
He was taken to the track's medical centre and then to hospital, where he will remain until he is cleared by his doctors.
The mechanic is suffering a concussion and has a damaged rib and the team is hopeful he will be able to leave the hospital soon.
Don't think so. I think the main factor is that Sauber's idea of having Kobayashi as the "high risk" driver and de la Rosa as the steady eperienced driver bringing in the points did backfire, with Kobayashi delivering the points and de la Rosa delivering... not so much at all.I am curious to know just how much Heidfeld's experience with the new rubber will be worth. He will surely have some valuable data for the team for next year after he got the job with Pirelli. I think that's why he got chosen in favor of De la Rosa at Sauber.
