Ferrari's current No.1, is a brilliant driver but is said to have a massive ego, as was evident during his one-year stint with McLaren in 2007 when he just couldn't get along with Lewis Hamilton.
Likewise, Alonso-Raikkonen is also potentially a fire and ice combination — two dominant forces who will fight together and against each other. After Mark Webber is gone from Red Bull next year, they will likely be the only team with a fierce drivers' rivalry. It may or may not work for Ferrari, but fans and F1 won't be complaining about it.
