Barrichello Admits Ferrari Team Orders

Rubens Barrichello has admitted the Ferrari team gave him clear team orders in his years at Ferrari. The Brazilian was Ferrari's second driver and was even threatened to get fired if he wouldn't move over for team mate Schumacher.

Speaking with Brazilian TV show Fantastico Barrichello said: "At the Austrian Grand Prix (2002) I was told over the radio 'Do you know that Michael is behind you? It is important for the championship'. The intensity of my conversation with the team increased with every lap while there were just a few laps to go and then I was told that they would take a closer look at my contract if I wouldn't move over".

"For me it was pretty clear. Take my foot off the pedal or get fired. When I asked Michael (Schumacher) if he knew what was going on he said he had nothing to do with it. But I have documents at home to prove that he was very well aware of everything that took place."

Maybe this is a sign that Rubens will not be returning to F1 for Honda next season and is deciding to spill the beans! Like penting for your sins on your death-bed?

Yikes, I knew Ferrari team-orders were in place when Schuey was about (I think we all did), but threatening Rubens? That's low... it's like shouting at a nun... the guys as good as gold.
