By far the best driver line up, as evidenced by the Sepang result.

I'm reading today in the UK press that Kimi was hampered by his engine. Maybe.

Alonso has established his McMerc credentials, as has Hamilton, who is a perfect partner at this stage. Win and you're a hero, come second or third in your debut season consistently and you're learning your trade. It's a win-win situation and Hamilton is young enough and mature enough to learn from Alonso and aim to improve his form.

I haven't been this excited watching F1 McLaren-Mercedes since 1999 and 2000.

Also thought Kimi was a great driver, but he now drives for "the enemy".

Alonso is a wee bit in the Schuey mould so easy to see why some folks don't like him.

Hamilton has blown away all the pre-season guff about him being brought in too early - so far at least. But can't help feeling the jury will be out on him until he registers a win - let's hope it's not too far away eh.

In the Mika and DC years, when they had the best car, they didn't always perform but one driver usually put in a decent race... I think that Hamilton is capable of the same feats as DC and hopefully more. Being Scottish I always favoured DC, but this kid has some real pace and racecraft to match.

As long as McMerc win - I'm with them both all the way. After last season it's great to have something to shout about.
