This smells like internal politics at AMR. Did anyone watch "Drive to Survive" season 3? Otmar is under no illusions that his job is secure, so quite naturally he is going all out to prove to Lawrence that he can make things right. After all of that PR only to be languishing in the midfield not to mention their start signing is being outclassed by Lance who is basically driving for free.
Yerp, the rules did hurt them, but this extra push by Otmar in a "dead season" is a bit overdoing it!
