What will Kimi do if the situation is reversed? Go to sleep? You know, Alonso IS NOT GOING TO MOVE OVER!
Besides, I'm puzzled why you think Alonso may have the edge after what you posted in this thread yourself and via proxy from another posters PM. If I would believe half of that I would certainly expect Raikönnen to crush Alonso easily.
What will Kimi do if the situation is reveresed and Alonso does not move over?
Probably this: Kimi will try the old fashioned way - and if it doesn't work out, he'll shrug his shoulders and he'll try again next time. You already know that's what he does. He is cold like that. But I could be wrong? Alonso, however, usually doesn't react in that same cold way. You, and everyone else, know that as well.
Anyway, what in my post(s) would lead you to imagine that - if I believed "half of" what I'd posted - I "would certainly expect Raikkonen to crush Alonso easily"?
Where is the correllation from what I wrote to what you imagine I'd expect?
Life is hardly black or white and no one season in Formula One is the same as another season.
All I said is that last time Kimi had:
1) no one at Ferrari he had worked with before;
2) wasn't forceful enough in his demands like he became at Lotus; and
3) had Shumi undermining him in the background, pulling instead for his protege' Felipe (who he - Schuey - had retired for).
Then I said that this time Kimi has:
1) Fry (McLaren), Domenicalli & Co, Allison and de Beer (both Lotus) - and, very importantly, Slade (McLaren & Lotus) there going forward;
2) Shell paying his salaray + bonuses and the Chairman being a Finn too; and
3) no Schuey working "against" him.
I also said that Alonso had pissed off Fry, Domenically and di Montezemolo and his "bluff" to try for Webber's RBR seat has killed of his "honeymoon" with Ferrari management.
Where did I say that I expect Raikkonen to "crush" Alonso?
All I said is that Alonso - being an astute driver and a reader of Sun Tzu - would know and recognize all of the above and shouldn't automatically assume that he'll get the Kimi that was the mid 2008 - mid 2009 Kimi. The Kimi from early 2007 up to Canada/France 2008 ... as well as the Kimi from Hungary 2009 to end of 2009 was a totally different animal to that low 12/13 months period.
But, where did I say that Kimi would "crush" Nando?
(On the contrary, I said Alonso would have "an edge" "over-all".)
