That's an answer to a different question..... And probably one that not everyone would agree with.

Alonso should have won in 2012 and Ricciardo is a number 2 driver at best.

Yes he should, but he had 3rd best car for most of the year. If Alonso was in the RB he would have tied it up way before the end of the season.

I'd like to know your selection criteria for no.1 and no.2 drivers!

While Alonso undoubtedly is one of the greatest drivers talent wise, his team integration skills seem to be lacking, when looking at his history. So the car might not have been the only reason he missed out on the 2010 and 2012 titles.

He certainly seems to have made the worse choices. Just imagine if he had stayed with Ferrari instead of going to McLaren

That choice was made for Alonso not by him.

As was his leaving McLaren first time round a choice made for him.

Good point!

Same play as Ricciardo's situation. Alonso was royally screwed over by McLaren.

There's always two that play a game. While a choice can be made for you, the question is whether you made the other party make the choice.

I think it was a threesome and McLaren liked the idea of Hamilton.

McLaren took Alonso back a second time despite their previous parting, and I believe Renault would have him back in a heart beat if they thought they could build a car worthy of his talent..

But if I'm following what you say here, Vettel was the main reason they got close, but Ricciardo destroyed Vettel when they were teammates (without breaking a sweat) and if Ricciardo is a number 2 driver then it logically follows that if Ferrari employ Ricciardo as number 2 he will win them the championship.

Indeed dsg, indeed!

But of course some will say Vettel was deliberately underperforming in 14 to get out of his contract!

Oh no, that was just luck for the most part. And indeed Vettel was dreadful that year. Sort of like Hamilton 2011.
