Each team has two cars fighting for the constructor’s title and two drivers, each fighting for the driver’s title. This can create a conflict between the drivers, both fighting for the individual prize, and the team fighting for the constructors. 

If the drivers are competing for the position, the team may issue team orders for them to stay clear of each other to protect the team’s maximum points opportunity. Or they may allow them to race.
