Although i have quibble with one of the questions.

Which was the only race to have been restarted twice?, Didn't Spa 2001 have two restarts, one after a car stalled, another after Luchiano burti's Accident
Thanks for pointing that out,
Both that Brogan mentioned were red-falgged twice, but the one AMR mentioned was restarted after the stallers, and then one red-flag for the crash. Not sure what the difference is, but spa 01 only had one red flag.

Also thank FB for sorting out the button :)
