I red last night in another site that the deal was done. Alonso and Raikkonen in the same team, finally. I been waiting for this since 2006. Of course that one of them will beat the other and his legacy (of the best between the two of them) in F1 should be highly rated. We don't know yet who will win and speculating is useless as is the first comment on this article. Anyway since Kimi is my nemesis (ice vs fire) I bet on Alonso betting him, just my wish, I can't say that will happen for sure. I am sure that some "experts' who do comment in this forum, will give their final verdict later on. I will have a lot of fun reading them.

fernando still hoping felipe will be retained, asking who could possibly do a better job and felipe outperforming kimi when tbey were team mates. i found a nice catalogue off kimi's 2008 season from a contributer on thejudge13,
'Kimi could only qualify 15th in Australia because of mech failure in qualifying, therefore lost the race before it even began. Lost 2nd place in Monaco due to drive through given for a team infraction then lost control on a wet patch after the tunnel and cluttered into Sutil. Exhaust failure in France handing the lead to Massa. Tactical fail by team in Silverstone, wrong tyres, lost lead and ended up 4th. Had to wait behind Massa in the pits during safety car at Germany, Had to queue behind Massa again after crashgate induced safety car at Singapore. Nerfed off by Hamilton at Suzuka while in the lead. Had to let Massa through at China. Massa was never in the same league, but Kimi's 2008 campaign makes Webber look like the luckiest person on earth'.

Alonso matured, your joking right? In public he puts a good face on, but you only have to listen to the team radio (not talking about the Monza Qualy) to know he is the same as he has always been

Lulu's PR man Benson at the BBC is saying Kimi to Ferrari is a done deal.

Should be funny watching Ferrari trying to manage this but they have the strongest driver line up unquestionably.

The only problem I have for both drivers is that they are poor at qualifying. Starting on row 3 onwards gives someone like Vettel the chance to put both drivers to the sword.
