LDM speaking about the evidence: Alonso will...benefit. So, Raikkonen might be entitled to hear, a similar statement, as he will also benefit from partnering Alonso, isn't it ?

What happened to the Ferrari cant have two cocks in the same pen speech in 2012 with LDM saying you cant have two No1 drivers at Ferrari with him sighting Lewis and Alonso's clash in 2007 to the reason why going down this road would not work.

Raikkonen is like Lauda, both retired at a point and then returned stronger. Maybe! But did John Watson benefited by the arrival of Niki Lauda to McLaren? If I remember well it was the team which benefited, McLaren started an upward trajectory from then.

nealio. it is far too early to hazard a guess as to who will be the competitive teams next year. yes, Ferrari may be one, merc another but a smaller team could well spring a surprise. little will be carried over from this year. maybe merc will fall back again, maybe Ferrari engine will be a bummer. maybe Williams will get a new lease of life with their new engine, etc etc

richard, You are correct and that is why I put the qualifying statement at the start of my comment. Note the big "IF" which starts it off. But based solely on driver pairings and past history it would appear that Ferrari have chosen a strong driver roster for next season with the hope of contesting the Manufacturers championship, IN MY OPINION.

IMO, this will be Alonso's best -- and last -- chance to actually prove he is the best out there. If Kimi beats him I fear the Ferrari dream is over, and they'll move on and actually support Raikkonen this time. And I see nothing wrong with that.
