It’s been an extraordinary season of F1 racing, with six different winners in six races.

There’s every chance that we could get a seventh in Montreal, as Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren, Michael Schumacher’s Mercedes and the Lotus cars should all be competitive there.

But who will be the first driver to win a second race this season?

Give us your guess in the comments section below. When a driver achieves a second win, we will go back and pick one of the correct answers at random and award a nice F1 prize.

I’ve done an in depth audio interview with Lotus F1 Trackside Operations Director Alan Permane for the June edition of the JA on F1 podcast. Check it out: It will be posted later today

Heikki Kovalainen.

The 1st 2 times winner: My heart wants it to be Frank’s Boy Maldonado or Jenson or Webber (in that order) but my head says it will be Alonso.

Which race is another interesting one – I’d say Michael or Lewis in Canada and then Alonso in Valencia.

4

Fernando Alonso

5

Webber

There will be 7 winners in 7 races then webber to take silverstone.

7

well since this is a competition ill have to say schumi please 🙂

8

Alonso

with one win already and his consistency so far this season, he must be the favouriteto get a second win.I think it will be a mistake from another team rather than an outright pace victory though.

9

Alonso , its a season made for him where all drivers get a chance and the winner is the one who grabs the opportunities.

10

Nico Rosberg, with the form and car for Montréal.

11

Its got to be Vettel, Red Bull are slowly rising back to the top

12

Vettel. He’ll win in Valencia I think

13

Mark Webber, and for the WDC too.

14

I’m going to go with Vettel. Not a fan of his, but I think there’ll be at least one more race where the Red Bull goes well and Seb does a race like so many from last season – gets pole, then follows it up with an easy win.

15

I believe it will be Vettel in Valencia. Canada I hope goes to Michael or Raikkonen, both wich deserve the win. But the first 2 time winner this year is going to be VETTEL.

16

Honestly, it could be anyone. Thanks to the tyres we don’t even know who is going to be quick in Canada. Nobody saw Red Bull winning Monaco after Barcelona, nobody saw Schumi getting pole either.

Based on performance in Barcelona though, I’d say that if Mclaren can get over their race pace (tyre) and pitstop issues, Hamilton should be strong once we get back to proper circuits from Silverstone onwards. As Valencia is also a high downforce high speed track, you’d think who ever does well there will be in good shape for the rest of the season as has been the case in all previous years where the winning team in Valencia have always gone on to win the constructor’s championship and the driver’s championship as well save for 2008.

Unfortunately, the tyres will dominate every race this season, so you can’t use the past to predict anything. Every race will be unpredictable right down to Inter Lagos. I just hope we get a championship fight somewhere along the way!

ill say it 7 times

MSC MSC MSC MSC MSC MSC MSC

Michael (7 letters)

Will be the 7th winner this season

7th win at Canada for him

i lost 3 fingers in an accident (7 left)

but MSC will take this for sure

18

Unfortunately it might be Vettel. If he wins, at least I will be happy to have a chance of winning some gadgets 🙂

19

Most defiantly Sebastian vettel! 🙂

20

Nico Rosberg

21

Kimi Räikkönen

22

The first driver, who will win a second race in 2012 will be Mark Webber, with a win in Canada this weekend. 🙂

23

Michael Schumacher : I suspect he is finaly coming to grips with that Mercedes & possibly the tyres as well. He was on pole in Monaco and his pace in the race was not too bad.

I think he has a fair chance of being the 7th Winner, I suspect he has the Team’s support in making that possible.

Hopefully he has turned a corner .

24

Canada

Quali –

1st Rosberg

2nd Schumacher

3rd Alonso

Race –

1st Schumacher

2nd Alonso

3rd Button

25

Webbski for me! not this week though, I think MS will win. Valencia looks good.
