Video: Is Ferrari managing its Formula 1 drivers correctly?

Leclerc Vettel Bahrain Grand Prix F1 2019

Ferrari's Chinese Grand Prix team orders failed to stop Mercedes claiming a third-straight one-two finish, and sparked debate about how it is handling new recruit Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel.

Two weeks after Leclerc was robbed of Bahrain GP victory, in China he was ordered to let Vettel past early on. That forced Ferrari to try to clarify its team orders stance after the race - not the first time this season it has ended up having to do so.

Ben Anderson and Jake Boxall-Legge join Glenn Freeman to debate the team's management of its drivers so far this year.

Is Ferrari right to do all it can to give Mercedes a hard time, and prioritise one driver when it feels it's necessary to do so?

Or does it need to accept that Leclerc is a genuine threat to Vettel and just let them race each other fairly while everything is still to play for this early in the season?
