Today we saw Valtteri Bottas become a new GP winner. Over the years it's been a bit of a forum tradition to hold a poll for who's next, although I've searched around and can't find a similar topic from when Verstappen won in Spain last year. I did find them from 2014/2015 which are amusing:
Who will be 106th F1 race winner?
Considering that this thread was from 2014 when Max Verstappen hadn't even raced yet, I think these posts were VERY inspired:
Max Verstappen, obviously....
I don't think there will be a 106th winner in 2015, so its possible that the next winner isn't in F1 yet.
Who will be the next new race winner?
I had a pretty terrible guess on this one:
Kvyat on a Red Bull-Merc next year.
And this guy got it right again:
Even though I'm not a big Verstappen fan, I voted for him because he is contending for podiums THIS year in the Toro Rosso, he should be doing the same next year but maybe in the right circumstances he could be contending for wins. I can't see Bottas winning at Williams.
Valtteri Bottas was a heavy favourite in both threads, I guess everyone came close, it's just that he became the 107th new winner rather than the 106th.
So who'll be the 108th? It's not looking like an easy clear choice is it - all current Mercedes, Ferrari, Red Bull drivers have won. My money's on Kimi's seat on Ferrari opening up for next year, and whoever gets it wins. So likely one of Perez/Grosjean/Sainz. I'm voting Perez.
