6th F1 winner set for Monaco?

SIXTH F1 WINNER? Will Lotus' newcomer Kimi Raikkonen be the next winner of a 2012 F1 GP? Some paddock pundits think so.

F1's next winner - at Monaco - could be at the wheel of a black and gold car.

Finnish commentator and former driver Mika Salo told MTV3 broadcaster: "I think Kimi (Raikkonen) will be the sixth different winner in the sixth race."

Although results so far in 2012 have proved impossible to predict many paddock pundits expected Lotus' E20 to be the car to beat last weekend in Barcelona.


"The big surprise was when Kimi didn't win," admitted former Ferrari driver Salo, referring to Pastor Maldonado's victory for Williams.

Also confident about Lotus' potential is Raikkonen's team mate Romain Grosjean, who finished behind the 2007 World champion on May 13. "It's good to be a little disappointed with third and fourth," he told the French-language RMC Sport. "It shows that, as a team, we are convinced we can win."

According to the current World champion team Red Bull's drivers, however, there's a downside to 2012's impossible-to-predict F1 landscape. "Maybe we will see an HRT or a Marussia on pole in Monaco," 2011 World champion Sebastian Vettel said, unenthusiastically but half-seriously.

Mark Webber insists that what has been described as "the Pirelli lottery" might not be a good thing for the sport. "I don't know if the fans will get sick of seeing so many different winners," the Australian told Fox Sports.

"It's nice to have different winners but also we want rivals."
