When we sat down in the carwow office to design the world’s hardest F1 quiz, we didn’t quite realise just how taxing the internet’s F1 experts would find it.
Fewer than 1% of the people who took the quiz scored between 90% and full marks, so don’t feel too bad.
Here are the official answers – see how many you knew, and even if you were on the right track.
Q: Which is the 2014 Lotus F1 car?
A: This one.
Q: Pick the four Finns that’ve been awarded the F1 Drivers’ World Championship trophy
A: Mika Häkkinen, Keke Rosberg, Kimi Räikkönen and Nina Rindt.
Nina Rindt was awarded the trophy in 1970. She was awarded it in place of her Austrian husband Jochen Rindt, who lost his life at the Italian Grand Prix that year, but had accumulated enough of a lead to win the championship posthumously.
Q: Which isn’t a real Murray Walker quote?
A: “The rain is coming down harder, and the track is getting less dry”. Sorry. We’ll stick to writing car reviews.
Q: Match the moustaches!
A: Ertl, Mansell, Rosberg.
Q: What type of tyre are these?
A: Soft dry.
Q: Which legendary Grand Prix circuit is this?
Q: Which road car is the odd one out?
A: Ferrari F40. It’s the only one that hasn’t had a version that’s named after an F1 driver.
We’ve been subjected to the Infiniti FX Vettel edition, Pagani Zonda 760LH (Lewis Hamilton), Fiat Seicento Michael Schumacher edition and the rather dashing Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Stirling Moss.
Q: Tyrrell famously raced a six-wheel car from 1976 and many teams then tested the design. Which team didn’t?

A: Juan Pablo Montoya – the Colombian hit 231.5mph in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza in 2005.
Q: When did F1 cars last race here?
A: 1966. It’s the Reims-Gueux circuit in France, beloved photo opportunity for many a European petrolhead.
Q: Who came 3rd in the 1971 Italian Grand Prix, just 0.09 seconds behind the winner?
A: Francois Cevert. The race set a record for the fastest average speed (150.75mph), which wasn’t broken until 2003. The top five finishers were covered by 0.61 seconds!
Q: If every race had used the 2014 scoring system, who would have the most career points without winning a World Championship?
A: Rubens Barrichello, in the red Ferrari race suit.

Q: What caused Johnny Herbert to retire from the 1998 Italian GP at Monza?
A: A spanner. A mechanic left a spanner in the footwell of the car, and it jammed Herbert’s pedals, which led to a crash.
Q: What is the shortest distance travelled in an F1 career?
A: 800 metres. The unlucky driver was Marco Apicella, who crashed on the first corner of his only F1 race at Monza in 1993. He was replaced by the next race.
