I don't think so...He's good but I just don't see the little extra something (yet). I think he will have a good carreer in F1 though, maybe even win on occassion, but unless he lucks into a great car and a not so great teammate at some point I don't see him becoming champion over some of the other talents on the grid.

I also think that his carreer will depend a lot on how long he'll be the top French driver on the grid and therefore can count on the french industry to back him up, but so far things are looking good for him.

Well maybe Bouiller talked a bit too much but He has potential for sure
The Kid just need to understand things learn and laern again and do it step by step.

He is now in a good team easy car and good ambiance he needs to enjoy that, the rest will come later

In the right car, in a couple of season yes he can. He can win world championships, proved that last season. Given a couple of seasons to learn the tracks properly and get used to what F1 is all about I think he'll be there or there abouts.

Right now he struggles to keep pace with Kimi in race conditions. If he will step back and learn from Kimi he has the potential but if he thinks he can take on Kimi right now he is going to get soundly beaten.

Qualifying does not a champion make.

I thought Perez was the next World Champion? Oh, so it's Grosjean now? Jeez!
Give that car to Kovalainen, Kobayashi, Maldonado, Glock or Di Resta and they'll do the same. He's French, smart and relatively quick. But the others I mentioned aren't French. Period.

Say what..
This was his first good outing..OK, so he was able to make
the podium, Cool. I see no evidence that Gorosjean is capable
of winning the WDC, now or in the future. Man its just to
early. One very good race, I need to see more. Crash now
has a pole. How can anyone make judgement with so little
evidence. GP2 winner he is, but this is the world of F1.
We all know the long history of one hit wonders who have
competed in F1. Come Brazil if Grosjean has what it takes
we will all know..

Most of the F1 sites are making the most (taking advantage) out of most fans minds (minds that click as fast as cats do their thing in January).
First there was a rush/crash about Sergio Perez one off and now it's Grosjean's turn.
Now not to take anything away from what Grosjean achieved for me he drove as good a race as Kimi if not better, when he was overtaken by Kimi (1) he was doing the same lap times as SV (2) on used tyres (3) KR was on a new set of tyres (4) KR started the race on new tyres and drove the whole race using new tyres and still didn't manage to beat SV who started the race on used tyres.
