Why Alonso will be better than Raikkonen?

alonso-raikkonenI wondered why Alonso will be better than Raikkonen ever since the news broke 2 weeks ago. Although Alonso is my favorite driver, Raikkonen still is my second favorite and i wanted them to be together in Ferrari.  Here is my take on why Alonso is better for Ferrari than Raikkonen.

Ferrari have replaced a top driver with another top driver.

Raikkonen has done very well with an awful car later this season and has obtained a string of good results since Hungary when Badoer failed and Fisichella couldn’t gel nicely with the car. But Alonso is a 2 times world champion and there is no reason why he couldn’t have done the same!

Another reason can be the sponsorship from Banco Santander. Everyone knows the relationship between Spanish superstar and the sponsors.

Kimi Raikkonen is a loner, though. A Ferrari generation grown with Schumacher doesn’t get along with Raikkonen who doesn’t speak a lot with mechanics. The contribution of the driver to the car development, with no tests, is fundamental.

Raikkonen and Alonso in a single team would remain a dream!
