Debate: Should Ferrari use team orders?

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, Melbourne, 2007The use of team orders at Ferrari has been a source of conflict among F1 fans – some defend it, others deny it, many decry it.

But with the departure of Michael Schumacher the question of which of its two drivers Ferrari is going to back is less clear cut.

Should Ferrari revert to backing just one of their drivers for the championship? If so, which one should it be, and how long into the season should Ferrari wait before giving them that backing?

Would you rather see Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen duke it out between themselves? Or do modern teams compromise their chances unnecessarily by letting their drivers race each other?
