With the Oz GP almost upon us I thought It's about time for a little bit of Clip the apex style fun.

Here are 10 questions on F1 Aussie style to keep you going. I know the the web is a wonderful place but try and give it a go without having a peek around for the answers. If you feel confident you can post your answers on here or you can keep them to yourself. I will put the actual answers up in about a week. Good luck.

Where there are limited Grand Prix can you post some general questions? - particularly relevant for Singapore/Abu Dhabi. For Valencia, there be plenty of European GPs to chose from!
No worrys Teabag, I'd all ready thought of that for the Euro Gps. As you say there is a hat full of questions to be had about Euro GPs in days of old.

I was going to worry about Singers when we got there. :snigger: That one is going to be a bit more tricky to make relevent given that we have only had one race there so far. An Idea did occur that I could make that one about unusual GPs given the running at night thing. One off tracks and odd ball stuff.

Glad you think it's a good idea. I'd like to see more people have ago but maybe they did and didn't post there answers.

It's good to have a bit of fun.
