So, another new idea for a quiz. The theme of this quiz is that every answer is a driver or engine supplier or otherwise involved in the McLaren Formula One team, except for Q10 which is a McLaren based question. Hopefully, we'll uncover some drivers you forgot drove for McLaren, and we can all call our scores.

Heikki Kovalainen

Some dubious interpretations of "otherwise involved" in there though... excuses excuses!​
I scored a magnificent one point*!

I get the feeling that one point is my quiz limit, as I've struggled to score more than one point for aeons...:s

*Q8 was the answer that provided this result. Initially I said out loud my answer. I then thought about it a bit more and changed my answer to another engine supplier. Upon pressing the answer button, it transpired that my initial response was the correct one. Luckily, I decided that I can only accept the first answer I gave, so I was correct..! :1st:
