Pre-GP Quiz 2019 Germany Grand Prix, Pre Race Quiz


Race Winner
Now this quiz should have been brought to you by Olivier, only sadly he's not been seen around these parts for some time. I hope he's okay and will return at some point in the future, fingers crossed. I told our esteemed mod cider_and_toast that if Olivier didn't return I'd pick up this quiz for him so that still was one.

Here it is then, I hope you enjoy it and I'd love to know your thoughts and scores please if you could spare a second to post them. Thanks in advance to all who take the time to do that :cheers:
