Ferrari's fire and ice pairing of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen has, in the words of president Luca di Montezemolo, put two roosters in the same hen house. Which of the two drivers will be crowing loudest come the end of the season is one of the questions all of Formula One wants answered. Any team needs both of its drivers to be pushing each other on and finishing on the podium in the chase for the constructors' championship, a crown Ferrari last won in 2008 when Raikkonen was with them.Di Montezemolo, who has been seen it all before over his decades at Ferrari, told reporters in December that the drivers knew exactly what the team expected of them: The team always comes first.If the car turns out to be a winner, and both drivers are challenging for the top of the podium, the internal politics at Ferrari will require a firm hand, but Domenicali is confident his drivers will work together.He said last month that the returning Raikkonen was more mature, and closer to the team, than he had been when he left Maranello in 2009 to make way for Alonso's arrival.
