Just Curious as to thoughts on Ferrari 2014. The old Senna/Prost Days with McLaren, or a more mature, disciplined form of aggression?
Will Domenicali be able to keep control of the fight for D1?

Will Alonzo be up to the very aggressive approach of Riokonin? Massa was always "a team guy." Alonso almost seemed emotionally weakened in some of his good by tweets last week.

I've always been a huge Riokonin fan, especially in Red. IMO, if Alonso can step up, and the F2014 has a good high speed, and low speed downforce package these two will make a great team.

Being from NZ my team is McLaren, so when I was growing up Hakki was my pick (also helped that he was a true gentleman of the sport), and as the team evolved I have followed the drivers accordingly. Kimi to me was the best purest racer I have seen, locked into a world of commercial bullshit which he did not fit. Lewis was/is fast and aggressive and on his day one of the best. Imagine my dismay now that Kimi is going to Ferrari, Lewis splintered and went to Merc, leaving behind the journeyman Button and the crash happy Perez.

The only reason my hate for the Scuderia is tempered is because of finger boy. How anyone can support such a conniving sportsman is beyond me. Without his Newey rocketships things would be very different. Alonso is a bit of a tool as well, and can come across as a bit of a whiney bitch when things are not going well.

2014 is going to be interesting.

Well, Kimi and the Prancing Horse do have a well established reputation. I can't see Kimi going to Ferrari without believing he could win the Championship. Don't really see how you can say Alonso has the ability to be a whiner, and exclude Hamilton?
