No team orders at Newman/Haas

At the end of the Denver GP Sebastien Bourdais passed his Newman/Haas teammate Bruno Junqueira and some wondered if there were any team orders to allow Bourdais to get as many points as possible since he is in contention to take his third straight Champ Car title.

"No, zero," said Junqueira. One of the nicest things about Newman/Haas, there is no team orders. For sure when he went to pass me, he didn't like completely pass me. I could have like maybe tried to make the corner and keep ahead. But already got together here in 2004. I kind of give him a lot of space. Then I got on the marbles outside. When I got the marbles, I went wide, then he had a chance to pass me turn two. Maybe if I was racing somebody else, I would play a little bit harder. But I was on the 'push to pass', didn't let him by. He was faster than me at the end. In the beginning of the race, I was faster than him, and I passed him.
