"I think that our top priority, as I have said in the past, will be to optimise the team points.
"So it may be that in some races it will be important that the two are somehow helping team decisions and accepting team decisions in order to optimise the team's interest, but by doing that we are helping the driver's interest as well."
After finishing sixth in the constructors' standings last season, its worst finish for 40 years, Ferrari is introducing a new power unit for this year in the hope it can fight at the sharp end again.
While there is optimism on this front, Binotto has explained the two drivers could be issued team orders if a gap develops between them in the championship and there are advantages for such an instruction.
"Later in the season, if there is a clear advantage of one driver to the other and one driver may achieve an objective which is not possible for the other, again, here, I think it will be an open discussion between the two," he added.
"So let's see how they can eventually help each other but still benefit the team. Optimising the team points is the first priority."
Charles will just drive to the front - He doesn't need Binotto blessing. And if the car is sh!t again Charles will leave!!
He doesn’t need Binottos blessing because Binotto will be gone.
