Aside from all the regulations and rule changes in Formula One for next season, the most intriguing aspect of 2014 will be at Ferrari.
Ferrari have moved away from their vision and usual team policy of building their team around one driver.
The Maranello team had huge success with this strategy with Michael Schumacher, but success hasn’t followed for Fernando Alonso, despite many believing he is the best all-round driver of his current generation.
So moving into the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship season, Ferrari opted to take a different approach.
With numerous regulation changes, F1 will be witnessing the biggest shake-up the sport has seen in decades.
Ferrari’s plan to get ahead in this market was to sign up two former world champions with Kimi Raikkonen returning to the team to drive alongside Alonso.
The thought is that in the factory, in the simulator and on the test track having the experienced heads of both Kimi and Fernando should aid Ferrari’s development.
Aiding the teams development should see a faster, more competitive car, that should see an improvement in results on the track.
But what then happens on the track if the two drivers are in direct competition with one another?
