Which driver is most likely to break his F1 duck in 2013?

Winning a grand prix puts a driver in fairly exclusive company, but can a new name breakthrough and reach the top step in 2013?
Pastor Maldonado did it, as did seven others in 2012, but Romain Grosjean admits to wanting to do it so badly it affected his judgement at the start of races.

Despite the spread of winners last season, taking the top step of the podium in F1 clearly isn't easy, and joining the pantheon of victors even harder as the sport concentrates its success on just a handful of teams. However, as Maldonado proved in Barcelona, sometimes the unexpected can happen, and there will be a few drivers hoping that the fickle finger of fate points their way in 2013.

We have compiled a list of the most probable contenders, so simply click here and cast a vote for the driver who you think is most likely to break his F1 duck and become the latest addition to the list of grand prix winners in 2013.

As usual, as well as casting your vote, don't hesitate to voice your opinions in the comment box below, as we're sure they'll make interesting reading....

Logically, any driver in a car not capable of winning won't win. Nased on last year, that excludes pilotes in Marussia, Caterham, Toro Rosso, Sauber and Force India Cars. Of the race winniing cars, I think SP is most likely as the McLaren is a fundamentally faster car than the Lotus, and he's fairly reliable. RG would be second choice, driver less reliable, car less quick. As a wild card I'd go for VB, all depends on what car Williams cobble together for 2013 - remember this time last year, who'd have suggested PM?

Those calling Perez a 'No 2' driver will be in for quite a shock. Button was never that quick to begin with. He won at McLaren because of good tire management and good team strategies, remind you of anyone ?? ... Perez HAS the same qualities AND is younger and quicker. I predict Perez will out-qualify and out-perform Button winning a minimum of 3 races.
