I remember Hamilton saying after the 2008 spanish GP (where Ferrari clinched the 2nd consecutive one-two finish) that he was missing the challenge that Alonso would have given him if he would continue to be Lewis team-mate. He said that sometime Ferrari is so fast that you can't do anything to at least challenge them and you just has to sit for 3rd place. But having Alonso on board he said that he had to fight with teeths and nails for 3rd place and their rivalry could push both of them to new heights, so they might even trouble the Ferraris ahead of them.
Well I guess that Lewis has has much more sportmanship than Alonso does. But if that's true, the Ferrari drivers can push each other next year and as a consequence they might trouble more the drivers of rival teams. Who knows? Until next year :)

i think that many are just hoping nando bursts a blood vessel, what can be better than having a raikkonen or alonso in your car, answer . . . having two of them in the cars, seeing the imposibility of that ferrari have the best alternative. fernando was quite sporting when trulli finished ahead of him in 2004, often to flavio's chagrin.

Once again, IF Alonso is being quoted correctly this declaration of his can only ADD to the brains problems that some seems to have fallen into by the announcement by FERRARI of their supper drivers line-up.
