Both Vettel and Alonso have been in amazing form, i dont think Kimi is up there. It would certainly spice things up a bit though if he could be more competitive. I would however love to see Massa get into better and more consistent form.

I would love Massa to make a come back. I think his career depends on a better performance this year. But unlikely Ferrari will let him do better than Alonso. I have my eye on Hamilton..

It comes down to the car. We knows he's a great driver as he managed to finish every single race in 2012. If the car is a bit more competitive then I think he will do quite well. Vettel has the momentum. Alonso seems more focused on complaining than racing but he's always competitive.

Well the source of the picture is questionable. You are right the scoops are different but the other few pictures of the 28 before are not the same as this 28...
