On the paper, yes!

It all depends on the 2014 F1 machine evolution (remember, new regulations?). I'm more worried about the new cars and how they sound!

If everything goes well, the 2014 season should be fascinating for WC and Constructor titles. This development certainly isn't a good news to RBR! :)

The only fireworks will be coming from Alonso's side of the garage if he doesn't get his way, I don't see raikkonen giving a **** as long as he gets equal treatment/equipment. "Michael, leave me alone I know what I'm doing"

if the car is going to be winner from the start, then in team fight will only secure WCC for Ferrari and possibly the WDC as well, however the likelihood being these great drivers will take points away from each other.

the WDC pays no cash to the team. whocares how many points they take.off each other?..Ferrari will decide when a driver gets number one status..until that point they are to drive the car to get the team as many points possible. backing Alonso for 4 years has not won ANY title

Taipan, there is no other driver able to do what Alonso did for Ferrari, especially in 2012. Just look at Vettel. He is perfect at the moment and he was the same as well in 2011 when driving the fastest car, if not a dominating one. But in 2010 and 2012 whenever he faced touch competition , he messed up from time to time. Last year was interesting because we saw two kind of performances from Vettel. In the first 13 races he had only 3 or 4 good moments. From Singapore(after Red Bull upgrades) to Abu Dhabi he was pretty much unstopable, driving at his best. Alonso and Raikkonen are better than him and Hamilton at maximising their results despite not being as fast in qualifying. Still it will be hard to pick the driver which come in top at Ferrari, but I feel that Alonso has something more on his racecraft, so my bet is on him, just my opinion.

Next year will be interesting for all of us fans, as at the end of the year we will see who is the better driver. Alonso or Raikkonen. Seeing as they will both be in equal cars.
