So you're leaving 2007 behind, only to set the scene with circumstances that are very similar, if not identical, to 2007.......
Massa is family, he knows how to feel their love, and give more love back to them. In the meantime Ferrari did all they could to catch Alonso, he's their big ticket signing. Now a team that spent that much time chasing a driver would want to maximise their investment and give him a star role, wouldn't they?
To directly answer the thread title, none of us knows the answer, because Alonso has only had a comparable F1 team mate once, in the year that we dare not speak its name.
.......you're then saying that the only time we can compare the current situation to a previous one in Alonso's career is in a year that you don't want to mention or discuss............
The exceptional nature of that year are not a reliable indication of the future......
.......and given all that you're saying that past events, no matter how similar they are to current circumstances and no matter what the common denominators are, can't be use to make any predictions? Nope, that doesn't go against logic every person uses every day of the week in my book.
....just like you wouldn't plan a holiday to California based on the earthquake of 1908 (or whenever is was)
Well, if there had been tremors and a major earthquake in that vicinty in the past few months then you would probably think twice about going. A sufficient amount of time has not past to be confident that anything has changed.
The window of opportunity to discuss anything in this thread has come and gone and it will now descend into la, la land. Ciro should now just close it.
