Why Ferrari never choose Italian drivers

It's been a well-documented fact that Ferrari, despite being a proud Italian team has rarely given Italian drivers a chance. Well, as can be seen from the latest qualifying in the European GP, the reason is quite clear. Giancarlo Fisichella, in a race-winning car, qualifies outside the top 10 for the 2nd race in a row. Well, instead of analyzing what went wrong with his hot lap, he chose to walk all the way to BMW's garage to remonstrate with Jacques Villeneuve because he felt that Villeneuve blocked him during his lap. Fair enough, Villeneuve did slowed Fisico by 0.7s. However, you rarely see that happening to Schumacher, Alonso and Raikonen, do you? By the way, tomorrow will set to be classic race again with Alonso on pole but Ferrari's Schumacher and Massa will be keeping a close tab on the fast-starting Renault with second and third places respectively
