@Tealeaf In terms of pure speed, I agree, Kimi is faster, but I think Raikkonen's consistency is better than Alonso's coming back to F1. He did fizzle out towards the end of last season, but I think that was because Lotus were losing the development race. I also don't think he capitalised in the first few races due to rustiness, before the dev race properly started in Europe. Alonso is a better all rounder in that he makes the best of a bad situation. He is also I think more aggressive when it comes to overtaking than Raikkonen. The DNF's are what cost him last year. Kimi is definitely looking better this year, as is Alonso, but Red Bull won the development race last year and that won them the title, I wonder if the same will hold true this year.
