Schumacher wants to help F1 review team orders

BY foxsports • September 9, 2010

Michael Schumacher believes he's the perfect person to help Formula One's governing body clarify the sport's disputed rule about team orders.

Schumacher was the beneficiary of the infamous team order Ferrari gave to Rubens Barrichello in 2002, telling him to cede victory to the seven-time champion on the final straight of the Austrian Grand Prix.

That led to a ban on team orders, which Ferrari broke at this season's German GP when Felipe Massa let Fernando Alonso pass him for victory. Governing body FIA decided Wednesday not to dock the Italian team any points, but said it will review the regulation.

Schumacher says being part of the review ''would be ideal.''

Most drivers at the Italian GP on Thursday agreed the rule needed to be amended.
