The FIA has taken the decision to drop the rule banning team orders during races after the Ferrari controversy this year.
In a statement, the governing body said: from 2011, “article (39.1) forbidding team orders will be deleted.”
Though the rule will be dropped, the FIA remains the right to punish teams if they feel an order has bought the sport into disrepute.
“Teams will be reminded that any actions liable to bring the sport into disrepute are dealt with under Article 151c of the International Sporting Code and any other relevant provisions.”
The statement added that all radio transmissions between the teams and FIA would be available to broadcasters by 2012 in a move which should make on-track decisions more transparent.
