MERCEDES will let Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg race freely for the rest of the season without team orders following a thrilling battle at the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Hamilton held off Rosberg at Sakhir on Sunday, and the only demand from their team was that they did not crash.

And that is only right.

No sport should feature team orders. They make a mockery.
