    It's the time of year when F1 drivers have the blood rushing to their heads as we head "Down Under". To celebrate here's a Jack Brabham themed quiz.

    Q1. How many years did Jack actively race in F1?

    16 years, from 1955 to 1970 - half a point for one either way

    Q2. How many teams did Brabham race for?

    3 - no half points here

    Q3. Can you name the teams?

    Cooper, Rob Walker Racing and, of course, Brabham

    Q4. To celebrate Australia's first World Endurance Championship race Brabham and Alan Jones both drove Rothmans Porsche 956's (for different teams). What year was this?

    1984 - when of you didn't have a Porsche 956 you shouldn't bother

    Q5. Brabham took part in the Indy 500 on four occasions, how many laps did he lead?

    Just one in 1970 - half a point of you guessed less than 10

    Q6. On to the second of the motor racing Crown Jewels, Brabham raced at Le Mans three times. What was his best result?

    Third in class in 1957 in a Cooper

    Q7. Final question on the Crown Jewels, how many times did Brabham win at Monaco?

    Just the once in 1959

    Q8. Brabham won consecutive titles in 1959 and 1960. Who was the next driver to achieve this feat?

    Alain Prost in 1985 and 1986

    Q9. All Brabham cars, even when a certain silver haired billionaire owned the team, had a BT prefix. What did BT stand for?

    Brabham Tauranac - Ron Tauranac helped Jack set up Motor Racing Developments (MRD) together

    10. Brabham was, famously, the first driver to win a car which bore his name as team owner. Where and when?

    At the French GP of 1966 - the year of his third title

    Not a quiz for the kids but I certainly learned some things setting the questions.
