DO IT FOR FERRARI!

Hello everyone,

Please take the time to read this petition which will be sent to the FIA to make sure Ferrari are not docked points when the Motor Sports Council meet at the end of June in Paris.

There is a strong possibility this will happen because:

a) Lots of "fans" were complaining about the Ferrari domination before the Austrian GP.
b) It would make for better TV viewing figures because it would (unfairly) reopen the championship in Ferrari's disfavour.
c) The Motor Sports Council which will decide the outcome are not directly involved with F1, so they may not care if there is no regulation against team orders and just hand the punishment out because of "unsporting behaviour" (which could basically mean anything).
d) The FIA and Max Mosley do have some influence though and if the FIA know we Ferrari and honest sports fans will not put up with any rubbish, it will force the Motor Sports Council's hand in proceedings.

Ferrari are the most honest team in F1 and Austria proves it. If Ferrari wanted to do team orders sneakily, they could have easily made Schumacher pass Barrichello in the pits.
Ferrari have patiently waited 20 years to win a championship. Did Ferrari cause an uproar when the two McLaren's of Senna and Prost collided at Suzuka for two years in succession which had an effect on the whole championship, let alone a single race?
Ferrari have always maintained a stiff upper lip, put their head down and worked on building a championship winning car. It took 20 years, but they finally did it through hard work, sweat and determination.

Now people want to throw away all that hard work just because teams and team fans such as those of McLaren and Williams can't stand not winning the championship for a few years. Tell them to sweat and put some hard work in like Ferrari did, and if necessary wait 20 years. Not by cheating!

Sign this petition and lets stop this. We Ferrari and honest sports fans have a voice too. Let's show them we care.

Please sign this petition (it's only 3 days old, but we have a month before it gets sent).

Here is the link to the petition:

Thank You

It may be a dirty word but in the most expensive sport on the planet the lire  investment by Fiat in Ferrari must be more zeros than anyone can imagine.  Whether people like it or not sport today is about winning &  the taking part is secondary. Sure I was disappointed for Rubens but it is a fact of life that "he who pays the piper calls the tune"
Ferrari should not be punished for securing the best return on their investment

The formaula one is not the sport of individuals but a "team-sport" so it is logic that Ferrari-team-manager looks for the best results for the team !
