Maranello, 2nd August 2005 - "We gave Rubens Barrichello the possibility of accepting an offer of a multi-year contract, longer therefore than the length of his relationship with us, while we also had the possibility of exercising an existing option in the contract we have with Felipe Massa, a young driver who nevertheless already has sufficient experience and whom we had already targeted as far back as 2001," stated President Luca di Montezemolo. "I wish to thank Rubens for his contribution over the past few years, which, to date, has helped us to win five Constructors' Championships. "From him, from everyone at Ferrari and from our technical partners, first and foremost Bridgestone, I am expecting maximum concentration and effort to get back to winning ways before the end of this season."

Sounds ok.

It's nice to hear encouraging words from the team of a driver whom is soon to be leaving them.

I heard the letter went something like....

"Dear Rubens,

Thank you for not once over-taking shumacher in your Ferrari career & moving over to let him over take you every second race. We are quite sure your hand must have been extreamly sore waving him past all the time.

A big thank you to you to helping us throw the race at indy this year. Our great Shumacher drove brilliantly for his only victory of the season beating 2 super Jordans & 2 lightling quick Minardi's and thanks to you Rubens you obeyed us on the radio and didnt pass him.

Thansk again for being the only driver in F1 that was paid to loose for 6 year

Kind regards

Then you heard wrong didn't you....

I imagine David Coulthard got a similar letter from McLaren, especially after Jerez 97 and Oz 98, among other races where he let Finns past, but of course you would deny all knowledge of this like the good unthinking drone you are.

O' Damm, what have I started... Ive got the Ferrari clan fuming. haha.

To be perfecty honest Mclaren did a bit of team orders themselves this season when they called Kimi in the pits first under the safety car even though Monty was leading.

In the same race though Fisi held up Alonso when I thought Renault should have told him to get out the way of their quicker driver, So its a tricky topic I suppose... <_<
