The latest episode of our Bring Back V10s classic F1 podcast revisits Ferrari’s infamous team orders fiasco from the 2002 Austrian Grand Prix.

We look back on everything that happened around the controversial finish where Rubens Barrichello was ordered to let Michael Schumacher through for victory, including why the Brazilian thought he’d never be asked to give up a race win early in the season.

Mark Hughes and Matt Beer join Glenn Freeman to discuss how all the key players at Ferrari handled the fallout from the race, and why Schumacher’s approach was different to that of Ferrari management.

We also look into Ferrari’s dominance of the 2002 season, and why Williams-BMW and McLaren-Mercedes found themselves so far off the pace. And no review of the 2002 race from the A1-Ring would be complete without looking at the horror crash involving Takuma Sato and Nick Heidfeld – including details of the damage the accident did to the Jordan from Gary Anderson.
