I think that even though there are obvious frustrations between certain drivers at times, I would expect most of them to be friendly off the track. It also seems to be in a drivers mentality not to hold grudges, look at schumi and DC, Schumi and Hill, Prost and Senna or even Massa and Hamilton in 2010 - all have disliked the other, but all have showed admiration and respect to the other after the rivalries too place. I think a lot of the on track rivalries in the past 10 years have been dreamed up by the press (or maybe Bernie) and handed to us on a plate for a better show, not too dissimilar to pro wrestling, albeit without the results being know before the start (I hope!). It's then up to the drivers to hopefully say what the media wants to hear to keep the story rolling.
+1. I have seen many interviews, not official F1 ones, that have been enlightening about how certain drivers/ex drivers think about each other. According to some here, Prost totally hated Senna, Hill totally hates Schumacher, Fisichella totally hates Alonso etc. Not so according to interviews I have watched. These people are/were at the top of their respective sport which means, on track, they don't give/gave each other leeway, which you would expect from anyone that is that competitive. Doesn't mean that outside that competitive field, they don't genuinely like each other. After all, people keep on going on about Alonso supposedly getting rid of Fisi at Renault, yet, after all that, Alonso & Fishi, along with Robert Kubica & others, played cards together all the time. Just saying, as much as we, the fans, think we know certain things, we don't really
