Not my cup of cake
and the chances of Ricciardo winning the title are about nil or less.
The only reasonable scenario is with regard to points being worth money. If either driver is holding the other up, and there is a chance that the faster bloke can pull off a pass or two to finish higher and score more points, then a team order would be sensible. Conversely, trying to "manipulate" the driver's positions, say via a delay for one in the pits, could mean that any additional points gained by the faster bloke could be negated by the other losing places and points. A seamless DRS overtake down a straight to minimise loss of time and overall position for both drivers has to be a better strategy.Ok (and I'll regret asking this) - tell me why they need team orders when they have no chance of winning either title?
