    PARIS, June 26 - Michael Schumacher paid on Wednesday for a moment of 'panic' on the podium but team orders are a part of Formula One, according to the sport's supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

    "There's team orders in bicycle racing and whatever," Ecclestone said after a hearing into Ferrari's controversial win in Austria last month.

    "That's how it is and I don't think we should change it. It's a team event."

    Four times world champion Schumacher, Brazilian Rubens Barrichello and Ferrari escaped sporting sanctions but were fined $1.0 million for what happened on the podium after a race that outraged fans in May.

    The International Automobile Federation (FIA) suspended half the sum for a year.

    Schumacher won the Austrian Grand Prix after Barrichello was ordered by his bosses to allow the championship leader through in the final metres.

    The obvious manipulation drew boos from the angry crowd and widespread condemnation for the Italian team's tactics.

    Asked whether Ferrari had escaped lightly, Ecclestone said they had done nothing wrong on the track.

    "There is nothing they could do as far as the race was concerned, nothing at all," he said..

    "In this case it didn't make any difference to the constructors' championship and as you can now see it didn't make any difference to the world championship either.!"

    STUPID
    Barrichello won the European Grand Prix at the Nuerburgring on Sunday after Ferrari this time told Schumacher not to overtake his team mate.

    "Their behaviour on the podium was a little bit stupid," continued Ecclestone, referring to the sight of Schumacher pushing Barrichello to the top step in Austria.

    The FIA commented earlier on how the Brazilian had stood in the winner's position while the German national anthem was played and how both stood together while the Italian anthem was sounded.

    Schumacher also took the winner's trophy from the Austrian Chancellor, did not acknowledge him and handed it to Barrichello before taking the second place trophy.

    "I think Michael got into a panic, he'd never been booed before so reacted," said Ecclestone.

    "He didn't think it through because he didn't have time to think it through. So I think in the end what has happened is alright.

    "There's an excuse for it but the result wasn't very tasteful," he said of the way Ferrari manipulated the Austrian race.

    At the time, Schumacher had a 27-point lead in the championship. He is now 46 clear and on course to secure a record-equalling fifth title before his home fans at Hockenheim next month.

    "If they had fudged something early on in the race, which people suggested they should have done, it would have robbed Rubens of the fact that he actually did win the race," said Ecclestone.

    "So now the world knows that Rubens actually did win the race. Michael acknowledges that as well."

    Todt defends Ferrari over U.S Grand Prix finish

    INDIANAPOLIS, Sept 30 - Ferrari sporting director Jean Todt has played down the significance of the bizarre finish at the United States Grand Prix on Sunday, and insisted that team orders were not implemented.

    Five-times world champion Michael Schumacher led the race throughout before slowing as he attempted to manufacture a dead-heat finish with team mate Brazilian Rubens Barrichello.

    The plan failed as Barrichello was credited with victory at Indianapolis, one-hundredth of a second ahead of the German.

    It was a reversal of the incident that caused a stir in the Austrian Grand Prix in May when Barrichello was ordered to allow Schumacher to pass him on the final lap and claim a hollow victory.

    But Todt told reporters on Monday: "It was not team orders, there was no need for team orders.

    "Seriously, the only thing that was said was that after the second pit-stop they should not fight any more and there was no more fighting after the second pit.

    "Michael could have won, but he wanted to have Rubens very close to him which we were very happy about, because you know we love Michael and we love Rubens.

    "But we all work for Ferrari and that's the only thing that really does matter for us.

    "It was not planned. It just happened like that. I was told it was seven centimetres. For us it isn't something that matters. What does matter is to have two Ferraris first and second."

    Todt said the Maranello-based team's tactics in Austria had been largely misunderstood.

    NICE OUTCOME

    They have since claimed both the drivers' and constructors' world championships, with Todt adding that the end to the Indianapolis race was a nice outcome from the team's point of view.

    "In Austria some people could have had a tougher understanding like thinking it's arrogant, it's typical - but here, honestly, it's among us," Todt said.

    "We were not penalising anybody. In Austria you could say we were penalising (Juan Pablo) Montoya, who could have had four points, or something different. But here, I think it's a nice thing."

    Ferrari were heavily criticised once again with Schumacher's decision to slow described as a "cock-up" by British American Racing team chief David Richards.

    But despite the condemnation and claims that the Italian team regard themselves as more important than the sport itself, Todt said he was only interested in achieving the best for Ferrari.

    "I think it would be very presumptuous and not humble at all to say that we are controlling everything," he added.

    "We are not controlling everything. We do our best, but we don't want drivers to fight against each other if it is not in the interests of the company.

    "We are in a sport where we have commercial interests and if we ignore that, we could have long discussions about that.

    "We just feel that the interests of the team, of our partners - commercial, sponsors, technical - is to win races. We do what we do because we feel it's the best for the company."
