Similar event the year before?[edit]

Someone amended Formula One to add details of a similar Ferrari 'team orders' incident in 2001. The words added were as follows:

In the Austrian Grand Prix in 2001, Rubens Barrichello, Schumacher's teammate at Ferrari who was 2nd in the race, was ordered by Ferrari to allow Schumacher to overtake him under "team orders". Barrichello let him pass on the last lap at the finish line. But this was further uproar to come at the same track the following year when the same situation happened, only this time, it was for the lead of the race. And not only did Barrichello slow down to let Schumacher through, the world champion made his embarrased team-made stand on the top-step of the podium which caused outrage with the supporters at the circuit and around the world. As a direct consequence of this controversial race, the FIA banned any further use of team orders in the new rules and regulations and fined the Ferrari team $1million for their actions. It was Ferrari all the way

If this is accurate, we could mention here that a similar incident occured the year before. I haven't checked the accuracy of the statement, though. I've deleted it from the main F1 article as being too much detail for an article which is already over long and slightly incidental. 4u1e 18:59, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
