Way back years ago Mclaren put two top drivers in the team, possibly it was Prost and Lauda, and I remember Murray Walker asking how Mclaren were going to decide which one was the number one driver and being quite shocked to discover there wasn't one. Whilst people on here are always going on about favouritism within Mclaren, fact is they were one of the first (if not the very first) of teams to say "We don't favour one driver over the other". That was a real rarity, and hardened journalists went round shaking their heads in disbelief that a team would be so foolish as to do that. So if Jenson dislikes team orders, at least he is in a team that won't relegate him to the number two driver, there only to support the number one driver.
