Among the most fascinating aspects bound to shape the 2014 Formula One season are the inter-team battles.
This season, no driver is fighting for pride alone. Some are fighting for their places in the sport while others, at the opposite end of the scale, are aiming to reach the very top of it.
At Ferrari, we have the clash of the titans between Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen, with their legacies set to be defined by how this season unfolds. At Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel now has a team-mate who might just be willing to talk to him. And at McLaren, they have taken the bold step of pairing a rookie with a world champion for the first time in recent years.
Here, from the least to the most likely, we focus on which so-called No. 2 drivers could upset the man on the other side of the garage and become their team’s prime focus.
