Ferrari need to produce the best car first and then we should see some very close battles. Alonso has already mouthed off about his car and if that continues next season and Raikonnen starts to get the upper hand I forsee trouble. Ferrari have bought Raikonnen in for one reason and that is to give Alonso the hurry up. If things don't go right for Alonso I forsee a move back to Mclaren as it is unclear how long Button's new contract will last. As I understand it the contract will be for 2014 only leaving a conveniant hole for Alonso to fill if nesscessary

Prost knows very well how it works. He was the team-mate and the bitter rival of Ayrton Senna which had touch time together. And he was a team owner as well so he knows very well the business, the feeling of the drivers and the team principal. It will be fascinating to watch how Stefano Domenicali will manage this. Despite several years without winning nothing and the pressure to deliver in the near future, the least he needs is his drivers clashing with each other on track, and knowing Alonso, the battle will be off track as well.

It sure will be interesting. If Ferdi stays on top and continues to beat Kimi .. he'll grow stronger .. Should Kimi start to beat Ferdi he will to break down and the malice Mc Boy will resurface. Stefano and the Ferrari presi will protect their Stander money and the Alonso investment will be favored. Ferrari will NOT honor their no #1 status claim if Kimi gells over Ferdi!

Both FA & KR will drive the wheels of the 2014 spec car. we will be sure of that. but IMO FA will criticize the car if it's undrivable while KR will just drive the wheels of it and shut his mouth. with that attitude I think the team will rally on KR's side. if my memory serves me right he never said a word with regards to 2009 car that he drove. and even produced a win even when they stopped developing the car.
