Clip 12 Months Ago Quiz


Valued Member
So, what was happening 12 Months ago on Clip the Apex? Lets pick out a few threads from this time last year:

1. Last year Nigel Mansell became an ambassador for Lotus (sportsman). So what was Nige's best result for Lotus?

3rd on 5 occasions

2. I asked who would win the Force India Intra-team battle. So where was Paul di Resta's best qualifying session last year?


3. FB told us Felipe Massa claimed that his own performance was hindered by Bridgestone tyresin 2010? Here's what Galahad said:

Massa is a nice guy but this victimisation schtick is getting a bit tiresome. In :censored: of 19 races, including Hockenheim, Alonso was quicker. Ferrari are running a racing team, not a charity. Even then, they let Massa stay ahead in Melbourne.

If Felipe's problems really were with the tyres as he says, I look forward to seeing him competing more strongly with his team mate in 2011. I won't hold my breath though.

Fill in the gap!
