Now that Nico's finally won his first race, let's guess who'll be the next to win his first one. Will it be Sergio Pérez, the star from the Malaysian Grand Prix? Or maybe Romain Grosjean if Lotus can keep up with the development rate of the big teams? Take a vote in the poll and explain in the topic.

My guess would be Sergio Pérez. Maybe even this season if we have another surprising race like Malaysia, the Sauber seems to be a decent car. If Ferrari signs him for next season, his chances will greatly improve of course.

I highly doubt that we'll see another driver getting his first win this season. It's just that it'd require pretty chaotic race(not that we won't have one) and additional luck/circumstances to pull it off. In general from this bunch I pick Perez as he's the closest one to get a drive in a top team.

All depends on who gets what drive next year. Hypothetically speaking if they all get their promotions I'd go for Hulkenburg for Mercedes, Grosjean for Lotus then Perez for Ferrari

Probably Perez, based on him ending up in a Ferrari seat from next season onwards.

The Lotus isn't far off and I think Grosjean is yet to hit his stride, so I would say he has the best chance of winning a race this year.

Sergio Pérez, but I don't think it'll be this year yet. Webber isn't looking like he's losing his seat at the end of the season anymore, but still don't rule out Vergne or Ricciardo as next time winners.

I don't know who will be next, but Perez will definitely win GPs - eventually in a putter, but lots once he moves up to the top teams.

Given that Dispenser89's guess in the last thread was that the next winner would be Rosberg in the Chinese Grand Prix, I'm waiting to see his answer in this thread.

I might wander over to my favourite online bookmakers and stake a fiver on his guess...

How about Adrian Sutil luckily winning a rainy Silverstone or some other wet race after replacing an utterly useless Massa?

Would have said Grosjean but as this season is completely random and luck and seeming to lack any consistancy.. Maldonado works too.

Next.. maybe Narain?

Grosjean is next. Lotus is a very quick car.

But can he beat Kimi on race pace? Maybe when he runs into problems like in China or whatever.

Grosjean probably. Force India car looks way too weak even with the race order changing from race to race. Surprised that McLaren and Red Bull seem unable to get their act together, saying that Hamilton probably would have won this race if he didn't have his pole stripped. So I'd say Hamilton to win at Monaco.

As much as I love Kimi, there will be days when Grosjean will come out on top. Then again, who would have thought Perez was near a victory, and Maldonado would win today? Who knows, maybe Kobayashi or even someone from Force India can win!
