A month ago, I was the only person in the WORLD who predicted that BMW Sauber driver Robert Kubica would qualify second and go on to win the Canada Grand Prix. I will now predict that the other BMW driver, who is quickly becoming my favorite underdog to root for, Nick Heidfeld, will win his first race at Hockenheim.
His second place finish at Silverstone in the rain greatly boosted his confidence. And we have all seen that when the BMWs are running well, they are very competitive with the Ferraris and McLarens.
Nick holds the record for the most F1 starts without a win, surpassing the record previously held by Rubens Barrichello, who won his first race after123 starts.
My second prediction: Heidfeld will shave off his Chewbacca beard after the win.
