Both scenarios are quite possible next year.

Murray getting a slam. But both will happen in the future

IMO 40% chance of Murray winning a slam, only 10% of DelPotro getting to #1.

A year ago I would have said 75% and 2%

Delpo reaching the first spot is a much more difficult task than Murray getting a Slam.
Therefore odds are Murray will do it first.

besides, Delpo has an obstacle called grass if he wants the first spot. I'm confident he will get to QF and maybe SF this year at Wimbledon.

yes, and in that case the two points could happen in the meantime :

Murray winning his first slam in Wimbledon and Del Potro becoming number 1 instead of Federer

Not saying its likely but imagine if Federer lost early in a couple of slams, that would lose massive points since he's always defending big points, so I wouldn't rule out the possibility of him slipping not just from number one but from the top2 in a hurry, plus he's unlikely to make it up with Masters wins when he does lose the slam points it may not happen this year (or it might) but it will happen sometime and when it does nobody will be expecting it

actually I imagined that situation because if Murray wins Wimbledon (which is not impossible at all ), Federer will lose many points there.

And if Del Potro did better than Federer in the beginning of the year, and even with a small result in Wimbledon, he would be ahead of him.

Yes Federer depends a lot on his points in slams (and more especially in Wimbledon which is his favorite one), that's for sure
