You don't know that this years F15T is exactly where it belongs. Throughout the entire season if Ferrari are splitting the Mercs you will have to accept there will always be the lingering question of 'What if it was an Alonso/Riciardo partnership' In 2008 and 2009, there was a lingering question of...

Re: Who will end their career with the most wins?

I expect Fernando to reach 53 wins, Jenson to reach 29, Hamilton to reach 40.

I do not have a guess about Vettel&Raikkonen as of now.

I guess that if Raikkonen&Rosberg had teamed up at Ferrari this year; their points ratio would have been similar to the above poll results. But if they had driven W06, points ratio would have been much closer.
