They are 2 good drivers, but not great. Alonso however does know what it takes to win and maybe that makes him a great F1 pilot...But he's not the fastest driver out there (something that he himself by the way acknowledges as well, which is probably one of the things that make him a winner, to acknowledge his weakness as well as his strenghts).

who cares?
being nice to mechanics doesn't make you a great driver.
Kimi never had any comments about his team mates and was never involved in anything like Crashgate. Only reason that Kimi didn't win three titles is called Mercedes Benz. One of that titles went to Alonso, one to SChumi. Drinking espresso with the staff it's not a big issue. Wait 3 races, and you'll hear Alonso moan about something...

If it's one thing we already know, it's Alonso is a first-class manipulator of men - he swayed Renault into his court away from Trulli back in 03 and 04. When he couldn't do the same at McLaren, the daggars came out.

Felipe is right, they are good drivers - but we're watching Alonso already try and jump into the Scuderia's pocket. Off track tactics are all part of the Fernando package.
