Alonso has shown his true colours, he just plain doesnt like the competition - but he's still just a little better than Hamilton, if Hamilton improves or Alonso cracks he's fucked though.
Raikkonen has decided money and poon are better than success, and Massa doesnt quite have that something needed to step up.
So, er Hamilton to do it.
I don't think alonso has a problem with competician. remember he signed to macca when raikinen was there and generally considered one of the best, in fact if the mercedes engine could have managed to stay in one bit for a race distance kimi would have at least one drivers crown & probably 2. when questioned who he'd rather be beaten by- his teamate or ferrari- he's always said his teamate cos that means he has the car to win it's just down to him.
massa I've kinda like since not reading the script and showing up schumacher last year, but all he can do right now is win from pole, bit of a one trick pony but if the ferrari returns to form and he gets those poles he's not down and out. seems to be more competative than raikkinen anyway, who just hasn't found his feet yet and it'll slip away from him real soon unless he improves.
hamilton... just seems to thrive on the edge, relish danger but has the talent to make it work. reporter: "... when you hit the wall in monaco..." lewis: "which one? i hit it about 7 times" he can only get better as he gains experience.
