Poll: Should Biaggi have been allowed to benefit from team orders?

Max Biaggi won his second World Superbike championship at the weekend by just 0.5points, ahead of Tom Sykes. Sykes won the final race, while Biaggi finished fifth. Biaggi's team-mate Eugene Laverty finished fourth after visibly slowing in the final laps of the race should his team-mate need the extra points. Is this fair? pollcomment

Always been the same.

And it won't change.

What was more important - a rider's and manufacturer's championship or a win for Laverty?

Let's be sensible here. would Laverty have won anyway? i think not.

Ducati lost the 2009 WSB chamionship because of no team orders between Haga and Fabrizio.

No one likes to see it but it is a team sport and massive investment by sponsors and the teams themselves will dictate the scenario. Get over it.

so what?!

like it doesn't happen with other teams, other sports - if the rules allow it then why not? If I were team manager I would expect nothing less..... its a team - we all want to win.

Its just wrong!

If this sort of thing starts/continues to happen the sport is just going to become like F1 and loose its competative edge. Its just unacceptable in my view
