Sep.26 (GMM) Heikki Kovalainen insists he is not under instructions to actively back McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton's championship challenge.
The situation between Ferrari's two drivers has been the subject of intense speculation, with world champion Kimi Raikkonen unlikely to defend his title, but reluctant to fall in line with Felipe Massa's close points tussle with Hamilton.Fellow Finn Kovalainen, 27, said in Singapore it has been left up to him how to handle the situation."The good thing is the team has not given me any instructions to do something particular, so I will see how the situation is," he said.It is a slightly different story at Ferrari, with president Luca di Montezemolo and team boss Stefano Domenicali making it clear that the team takes precedence."If it means doing everything we can to have Felipe as the winner, we will do it," Domenicali said."Our drivers deal with that easily because this is the way Ferrari have always done the races."
