There's already a thread discusing the 8th winner but has not poll and I'm to lazy to read comments, I'd just like the results of what people thinks about this. If there's gonna be an 8th winner who that'd be?

Due to the aero superiority of the HRT, Karthikeyan will win the British, Belgian and Japanese grand prix's in a canter.

Seriously though I'm going with Schumacher, his luck can't stay bad forever and it's apparent Mercedes has a decent car.

Of those non Indians mentioned, he is the only one not to look even remotely like getting a podium.

Grosjean at Valencia. He knows the track and temperatures will be hot, which should suit Lotus.

I don't think is going to happen but based on current form and car, I will say Grosjean.

Lewis has 18 wins, so has Kimi. Therefore I say Kimi will win next race. He is determined to lead Hamilton.

Schumacher hasn't been on a podium for over 5 years (3 retired). And he's listed.

Grosjean. He knows this track quite well and was performing strong there in the past.

Lotus will fall in development rate compared to top teams!

It already has!

Do some of you just rush to comment on a topic without considering the title? :stoned:

This one says "Pick the 8th winner" so if you pick someone who's already won this season it's OFF-TOPIC! As is debating if one or two drivers who could be an 8th winner may be asked to move over etc etc etc.

Please read, understand and consider your posts prior to pressing "Submit Post"... it'll save everyone a lot of bother :up:

Did you see the last race? Sometimes it helps to watch what is happening in reality instead of giving 'will happen' prognostications - so and so will win Valencia, Lotus would fall into pits before Spa, etc. It's not that tough. You just have to watch the races.

Look at that ... Romain is leading, my vote goes to him as well. There's no reason to doubt in MSC or Kimi, but their card of luck so far hasn't been around, as opposed to the young Frenchman, who has had some really nice races.

Good luck to all!

Going to have to side with Kimi here. Ignoring the last two races, he's generally been a bit better than Grosjean in the races. Also can't discount the possibility of Grosjean somehow having yet another incident either.

Romain or Michael. Can't see Kimi being in the zone.

But my gut tells me the trend ends tomorrow. Vettel will prove the doomsayers right and dominate.

I think it could be Grosjean.
But Kimi has a good chance as well, he has a good racecraft.

MS seems to be out of contention this wkd. Maybe he could be the 9th winner next race... assuming we have an 8th winner tomorrow.

Kimi or Romain seems the most likely after qualifying, but I'll be surprised if Vettel doesn't win it.

That being said, this season has been full of surprises :)

Well, there is no 8th winner in 8th races but still we can have the 8th winner in the 9th race. After seeing Valencia, I think Grosjean is going to be the 8th one.

It is possible to win without having the fastest car. You only need track position, strategy, consistency, attack and some luck. So far it was not many races which were won by fastest car/driver of the race.

Indeed, just look at Fer, he did it twice
