What amazes me is why don't Ferrari just come out and admit that they operate a Number 1 policy. They've done it for much of their recent history. It seems bizarre to be making these admissions because something that really isn't news then becomes news. Weird !!!
But then the rest of the teams should come out and admit it first, since they all do it the same way.
In the Schumacher days they operated with a #1 policy since the beggining, and Austria 2002 was an example: Schumacher was already first in the championship with an advantage, they had a dominant car, and it was early in the season. After Schumacher was gone, they stopped doing that, and they gave equal opportunity until a leader emerges and the situation is required. And that's how every team works. You just have to see Raikkonen vs Massa in 2007 and 2008. And with Alonso that is still maintained, since we all could see for the last 3 years that in early season Massa wasn't moving over. Also, the combination of a star driver vs a young/experienced and reliable driver is not exactly exclusive to Ferrari. So there, quit crying already
