Alonso is one of the best overall as he does very well in bad situations as he had a shaky Renault in 2008 and then a very bad Ferrari this year and still won in Malaysia this year and a few races in 2008. But there are other drivers that dominate better and have more specialties like Vettel,Shumacher,Raikkonen.

Plenty of people seem unsure about Alonso's ability. I'm not a fan of the sulky spaniard but one thing I can confidently say is he's better than Kimi. Why?
Easy, just compare Kimi's performances viz-a-viz Massa and Grosjean. On this evidence Alonso is way ahead of Kimi. Now things don't necessarily work out as simply as this in reality, but you'd have to admit on this evidence Fernando is superior to a driver who most people seem to rate very highly indeed. My own favourite...Pironi - these days no one takes my fancy.

I think he is regretting those words big time right now. IMHO this guy has something personal with Ferrari unresolved, he should give credit where credit is due and reckon Ferrari hired the best, only failed in giving him a decent car afterwards.
