No phrase terrifies Formula 1 teams as much as 'team orders'. But it should not.
Team orders are legal and there are circumstances when their use is perfectly acceptable. The reaction to the mere suggestion that Mercedes may need to use them to keep Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg under control has proved F1 has yet to grow up and stop being so scared of it.
Arguments over team orders tend to lack nuance. To many, team orders are a hard and fast concept meaning pre-ordained finishing positions. Nothing more, nothing less.
