8 for me. I got lucky on Q5 (pure guess) and Q10
(I did think it was false but I thought it was Alonso, forgetting Hamilton was ahead of him in 2007).

I have to confess I'm not being entirely fair on these, because I tend to only take part in them hen I'm pretty sure I know the answers. Shame on me.
