His team mate certainly, he just needs a strong season, regular points finishes and the odd win if possible but his team mate is much more capable of delivering a WDC.

Got a feeling it's going to be Vettel and Alonso at the end of the season, maybe Jenson as an outide bet. If the Red Bull is good Vettel is more than capable of making it no4.

Grosjean for WDC? what the...? Somebody has been on the sherry.

Button is a good bet and you'll get 7/1. I stuck a few quid on that. Perez is a clear 2nd driver and this will help focus McLaren. It looks fast in testing and Button can get in the groove on the right machinery. Watch those odds drop after the first few races.

@BT33 - You say that Vettel is a crasher because of a wreck in the rain when Lewis slowed down unexpectedly. Vettel was the victim of erratic driving by Hamilton which caused Webber to stand on his brakes. The crash with Button at Spa is one of the only times that he seems to have been totally at fault. Now for a real crasher look no further than Hamilton. Running up the backside of Kimi in the pit lane has to be one of the dumbest things that I have ever seen in F1.

I like Grosjean. He is a great young driver, and hopefully he can put last year behind him. Once he gains more confidence he will do very well. And with Raikkonen and Grosjean driving for Lotus, I could see them having a large effect on the Championship. I am not saying they will win the championship, I am saying that they will have an effect if they start winning races and finishing above the main championship contenders.
