What does Ferrari do? They absolutly can't take a chance of taking themselves out, but if they tell Vettel to go slow the second row will be all over them.

Is there any reason to suppose that Kimi will be slow off the line? I would
expect him to lead up the hill with Seb in his wheel tracks. If Ferrari
want to promote their championship leader there will be plenty of
opportunity later, although with Hamilton out of the running I would hope
they won't bother.

If Vettel does one of his blast starts they could run out of room at turn 1 real fast.

I think that the only way Ferrari will allow Kimi to win is if Seb is out of
the race.

Kimi knows what he's doing...

I doubt they'll think much about it. Vettel and Raikkonen are both experienced, and it's the start of a race when all sorts of things may happen.

Why would any team, at this point of the season, tell experienced drivers what to do off the start? There is, in any case, little they can do to control the situation.

Though it turns out that they did - at least a little. Vettel specifically mentioned after the race that the team had discussed the first corner.

Well it all worked out. Vettel waited for pit strat to put him ahead and never looked back. Well done Ferrari.
