What they say

Rossi was asked whether Fernando Alonso or Esteban Ocon will be the team’s ‘number one’ driver:

That doesn’t exist. I don’t think it exists in many teams, to be honest, at least not in ours. The two drivers [need] to be as fast as possible and will clearly challenge each other. That’s like healthy competition and that’s about it. There’s no instruction and no number one driver designated here.
