That's a huge smash...

Today, we saw the dangers that Formula 1 still has deep within its cruel armoury, but thanks to safety developments- we had Sergio Perez trying to work his way back into a Sauber for tomorrow's race just a few hours after his shunt. As such, I thought a quiz regarding crashes would be a good- if perhaps inappropriate in the eyes of some- way to recognise the crash history of F1.

1. Who, at Monaco in 1996, only made the barriers at St. Devote on lap 1 after absurdly deciding to start on dry tyres in the wet conditions?

2. Which infamous crash at Singapore 2008 helped Fernando Alonso to win the race from fifteenth on the grid?

3. Which driver broke his legs at the one-time Dallas Grand Prix in qualifying after finishing second at the previous race on the streets of Detroit?

4. Who, on his first attempt to qualify, found the barriers and broke his legs for Simtek in Spain in 1994?

5. Name two leaders of the 1999 European Grand Prix who crashed out of the lead.

6. Murray Walker returned to the commentary box on the radio for the European Grand Prix of 2007. Who was craned back onto the circuit after spinning off into the gravel?

7. Who did Mark Webber collide with at Monza in 2009 to virtually kill off his world championship chances?

8. Who flew over the field at the start of the 1980 Monaco Grand Prix?

9. Who started the huge pile-up at the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix?

10. Martin Brundle, Jos Verstappen, Eddie Irvine and Eric Bernard all collided at the 1994 Brazilian Grand Prix. Which driver was subsequently excluded from the next three races and who did the tam hire as his replacements (There were two replacements)?

11. The polesitter at the 1995 Italian Grand Prix spun off on the parade lap, who was this driver?

12. Ayrton Senna collided with two different drivers at the first corner of the 1994 Pacific Grand Prix. Who were they?

13. Which Brazilian driver was unable to stand in for Ralf Schumacher at Indianapolis 2005 because of his team's use of Michelin tyres?

14. What did Mika Hakkinen do after crashing out of the 1999 Italian Grand Prix?

15. Which driver prevented Juan Pablo Montoya from winning his first grand prix (which was his third
start) after messing up his breaking?

16. Taki Inoue crashed into what at the 1995 Monaco Grand Prix?

17. Michael Schumacher crashed into several drivers, possibly on purpose. Who narrowly escaped a nasty accident at last year's Hungarian GP after a run-in with the German?

The quiz will be marked out of 21. Enjoy!
