Alonso paired with Vettel, Alonso comes out on top. I would pick Vettel to have the edge in wins, but Alonso's consistency would garner him more points throughout the year. I doubt we will ever see Alonso and Vettel as teammates. I do look for Vettel to someday drive for Ferrari, though. Topping the Schumacher legacy will be the ultimate challenge for Vettel. Don't be surprised to see Alonso finish his career with McLaren, now with Dennis no longer directing the McLaren F1 team and Hamilton gone. This would especially be the case if Ferrari signs Vettel.

one day in realising their biased opinions,people would find themselves ashaming for having contributed on choosing him The Driver of The Year when all he can do is nothing for the title but big whinings.
Renault days was a fluke out of radical rule change turmoil in campaign to stop the domination of Ferrari + MS that went to his favour.

Personally, I find it hard to believe that Ferrari is all that interested in winning the WDC no matter what they keep saying. :) If they were, they would have put Kimi back in his 2007 seat, their last WDC. I believe that if Kimi had been in FA's seat last year that he would have won the WDC. On Fridays Kimi ran r&d for Gro, while Massa was running r&d for FA.

Seb, is smart. He knows the most important to question to ask is "What team will Adrian Newey be at?" The second most important question is "How do I drive for that same team?"

Not dreaming. I believe people in the paddocks know the drivers more than we do. Alonso also won 2 championships in a row in a non-Newey-designed car. Web maybe be quick, but his cars are also clearly faster than the rest of the field during most parts of last 3 seasons.

Some fans insisted that since Ferrari didn't hire Lewis Hamilton, that was a slam on Hamilton, now Ferrari say they would also not pair Vettel with Alonso either. It's pretty simple -- Ferrari clearly favor a number1 number 2 driver scenario, and Ferrari already has their number 1 driver so no more room in the in. For those who think Redbull will be dominant until the end of time.. I say watch F1 in 2014., I'm guessing you will be surprised by the changes you see. btw -- Ferrari almost beat Vettel and Redbull with a slow car.. my guess is they will have a fast one in 2013 stay tuned.
