25-year-old Kimi, desperate to close the twenty two point deficit to Renault's Fernando Alonso, is nonetheless thirteen ahead of Colombian F1 teammate Juan Pablo Montoya.
"At the end of the day we are a team," said Woking's 'F1 CEO' Martin Whitmarsh, "and the team interest comes first."
He told Autosport: "If we have to call teams orders we will.
"But having a balanced approach ... is a philosophy we will maintain.
"We want Juan Pablo to be a motivated member of the team."
