For me, looks like from 2007, admit it or not, the pending match for many is Ham vs Alo, preferably with roughly matching machinery, to stablish who's the best realy.
They were teammates in 2007 - what do you mean to establish who is really the best? It is clearly Hamilton, who as a rookie, beat Alonso in equipment that was roughly matching. I think Hamilton would beat Alonso again in the same team with roughly equal equipment over the course of the season.
I still reading this same (word by word) sentence from then, together with usual replicas: "same points, unfairly team approach, no truly rookie...".
If you think game is over, congratulations! You are one of sort with this clear and tough mindstate, but you know, don't you? there are some other people that don't agree, or maybe, simply want a second round to enjoy the show.
What do you think, wish a new match?
I think it would be a waste of time.
Alonso had far more experience than Hamilton in 2007. He was also a double champion. By virtue of having seen him race, we already knew he was a great driver. That didn't change after 2007 - he was still more experienced than Hamilton and still a double champion. In those terms he was a more seasoned driver and had accomplished much more - and in that way he was the better driver overall at the time. You can't take that away from Alonso.
Hamilton was a young gun rookie, a hotshot that came in and beat the 2 time champion - so he was better on the season
- but not better than Alonso overall - of course not, he had only driven for 1 year.
In any other season, paired at the same team, either one could win again, and then we would be able to say the winner was best on the season - but it would not necessarily mean that the season winner was the best overall of the two. Now, both have experience, but maybe their career paths are going to be vastly different - so you would still have to wait until they retired to compare fairly. Otherwise you are just guessing.
I see no point in their racing one another again. If the joy was watching them race on the same team - we already saw it - and we already know that either could win. If the point is to "determine who is best overall of the two" - that is impossible. It was a miserable year for both drivers, why make them go through that again? It is pointless, imo.
I see no point in pairing either of them up with Vettel for the same reason. It tells you nothing. All you get is a winner on the season - and anyone could win. Again, you have to wait until they retire before you can compare their F1 careers.
