Domenicali welcomes end of team orders ban

10:04 am on 13 December 2010

The Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali has welcomed the lifting of the ban on team orders in Formula 1 as the end of a "pointless hypocrisy".

Ferrari were fined for team orders this year but not penalised further because previous incidents had gone unpunished.

The rule was removed by governing body the FIA at a meeting over the weekend.

Domenicali says for them F1 has always been a team sport and should be treated as such.
