    I asked www.random.org to give me 10 random numbers between 1 and 913, and I would write a question about the World Championship Grand Prix which takes that ordinal.

    1. What did Bob Gerard become the first person in World Championship history to do at the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix (2)?

    He became the first person to finish two races in the same position (6th - bonus half point if you got the right position).

    2. At the 2011 Singapore Grand Prix (853), the top five were unsurprisingly Vettel, Button, Webber, Alonso and Hamilton, in a mirror of the final championship. Which driver, by finishing sixth, broke the Championship link?

    Paul di Resta for Force India

    3. Felipe Massa celebrated his maiden win at the 2006 Turkish Grand Prix (764), but which future team-mate celebrated his 100th Grand Prix that day?

    Kimi Raikkonen

    4. Ligier scored their first front-row lock out of 5 at the 1979 Argentinian Grand Prix (314). But how many of those 5 came in 1979?

    4 of them were Laffite/Depallier in 1979 (Arg, Brazil, Spain, Belgium) but the fifth was at Brands Hatch in 1980 (Pironi/Laffite).

    5. The 1983 European Grand Prix (387) at Brands Hatch saw Nelson Piquet, Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell step on the podium. For 1/3 of a point each, name their team-mates!

    Riccardo Patrese, Eddie Cheever and Elio de Angelis

    6. Which driver was the only qualifier not to complete lap one at the 1996 German Grand Prix (592) in only his second outing at Hockenheim?

    Jos Verstappen

    7. Ferrari did not appear at the 1973 Dutch Grand Prix (230). Name either of the two engine suppliers who were not Ford Cosworth.

    BRM or Tecno

    8. Sebastian Vettel was not on the podium at the 2011 German Grand Prix (249). How many times did this happen in 2011?

    Twice. Here and in Abu Dhabi, where he retired on Lap 1

    9. Which constructor scored the most Constructors' Championship points at the 2007 Spanish Grand Prix (772), without them being retrospectively confiscated?

    Ferrari with 10 for Massa's win. McLaren would've scored 14

    10. At the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix (783), how many laps were officially held under the first Safety Car?
