92% of fans against team orders at Mercedes

Mercedes took to Twitter and Facebook to canvas their fans opinion on whether they should impose team orders going forward in order to avoid a repeat of the Belgian Grand Prix.
Of the almost 20,000 votes, an overwhelming majority of 92 per cent voted in favour of free racing, with just 8 per cent demanding team orders be enacted.
Whether the team will actually listen to its fans is yet to be seen, but we might not have to wait much longer.
Both Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are at the Mercedes F1 factory today in Brackley to discuss the matter with team bosses Toto Wolff, Paddy Lowe and Niki Lauda.
The subject of the meeting is to find a way forward which both drivers can agree on without derailing Mercedes championship ambitions, whilst giving both a fair shot at the title.
It's also likely that the team will punish Rosberg for his actions, with many speculating he will either be told not to challenge Hamilton for pole position in Monza or, if he finds himself behind Hamilton in the race, to hold back.
