Barrichello quick to dismiss 'team orders'

By on

Brawn GP driver Rubens Barrichello was quick to dismiss the 'team orders' allegations by the media and fans after the Spanish GP race this afternoon. The veteran Brazilian responded to the BBC, "I hope not. I've been in a team that very much favoured someone else before. Ross has been in that position (at Ferrari) too but he likes me very much I think." Hopefully he is not being naive about the situation.

Although this is what he told the press right after the race, "I had the race in my hands and I was quite surprised when they told me they were switching Jenson to two."

"I would like to understand why they changed that," he added, questioning the motives of the current dream team.

"If that happens I won't follow any team orders anymore, I'm making it clear now so everyone knows."
