My friend and I have religiously watched F1 since the mid 1980s yet we scored 2/10 mostly due to luck. Most of the preamble to the questions seem to be utterly irrelevant to the final actual question which is suitable for only statisticians. Poor quiz. Not fun. Or in in the spirit of a light hearted quiz for the casual F1 fan. Not happy. This is not what the forum needs to bring in more people.

People who take the time to write quizzes should not be subject to criticism. At the start of the season volunteers are asked for and all are welcome. Pitching questions can be difficult and made more so if English is a second language. There are a set of guidelines published in this forum, one of which states that the quiz writer is free to make the quiz as difficult or as easy as they wish.

On behalf of CTA I would like to thank all those who wrote a quiz this year and look forward to challenging ourselves again next year.
