Fast facts: Michael Schumacher believes he's the person to help F1's governing body clarify the disputed rule about team orders. Schumacher was the beneficiary of the infamous team order Ferrari gave to Rubens Barrichello in 2002, telling him to cede victory to the seven-time champ on the final straight of the Austrian Grand Prix. That led to a ban on team orders, which Ferrari broke at this season's German GP when Felipe Massa let Fernando Alonso pass him for victory. Governing body FIA decided Wednesday not to dock the Italian team any points but said it will review the regulation.
