Hulkenberg or Ricciardo would fit the bill me thinks.
Hulkenburg is not a number two driver.
Look at the guys history before and inbetween formula 1, you will be hard pressed to find a CV better than that anywhere.
Anybody would have a hard time against Hulkenburg, whilst I consider him unproven, my hunch is that he is as good as either Hamilton, Alonso or Vettel.
A lot of people felt he was the one of the stand out drivers last year.

The one signal Red Bull sent to Vettel in Malaysia was "Webber can get away with things, but when you do, you are in big trouble".
An opinion presented as a fact.
