But we can compare Hamilton versus Alonso, Alonso vs. Fisi, and Heikki versus Fisi. Alonso was able to beat Fisi on a regular basis, although every so often Fisi would suddenly find something extra, and win. And once Heikki got over his early-season anxieties and learning curve, he too was able to easily be superior to Fisi.
So what strengths and weaknesse do Heikki and Lewis posess? Heikki needed almost a half-season before he got over whatever was bothering him, and got down to wringing the neck of his Renault. And once he gets going, he displays great strengths. lewis, although a great driver in the making, still cannot maintain pace all race, and on occasion he has been known to be unable to charge near the end.
I do not expect a repeat of the McLaren drivers' fiasco where Hamilton and Alonso spent so much energy and attention on beating each other, to the point they beat themselves. Both Hamilton and Kovalainen signed their contracts with McLaren after the end of the season, so I'm quite sure that in each contract there are clauses detailing their position within the organization and how to deal with their opposite number.
Right now I give Hamilton the upper hand because of his familiarity with the team, and his ability to get going from the very start. Despite getting testing time, Heikki may go through what he experienced last year, building up enough laps and track time to the point he can seriously compete with his peers.

Does it matter?
No, not one bit. No increase in bandwidth and an extra few Kb of text on the server.
New thread = new thoughts and input from people.
More than one post on the same subject is no harm, only good as far as I'm concerned on forum where the intention is to talk about things.
You came in and had a look and why was that? It's because you thought you were missing something new.
If this reads like I'm being nasty, I'm not, it's just one of my pet hates. It's like the people who post "repost" on something that was once talked about before, it's pathetic and of no constructive value.

Just thought that it would be better to have some order. Sometimes there are very similar threads spread all over the forum and makes you write something that was already posted. Sometimes its difficult to find something because you have to look in 5 threads.
As I said, you can do what you want, but still some people (me included) would appreciate some order.
PS: Sorry, it´s just my structured engineers head!
