So today we're going to party like its 1999. Its a favourite season of mine, so lets see what you can remember of the craziness of the last year of the last century*.

1. Easy start. Mika Häkkinen won the Championship. Name the rest of the top 5 in the WDC for ¼ of a point each.

Edmund Irvine, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, David Coulthard and Michael Schumacher.

2. Which Grand Prix was held for the first time in the World Championship?

The Malaysian GP

3. Rubens Barrichello's dash to pole at the French GP was due to weather conditions. Which driver also gambled on the weather and started second?

1 and 3/4 plus a couldn't be bothered to do the maths on question 7.

I guess 1999 must have passed me by.
