The British Quiz


Valued Member
As one of only 2 Grand Prix to claim a full total of 59 World Championship races, the British GP is one of the heritage Grand Prix on the F1 calendar. For that reason it is also one of the most quizzable GPs!

  1. From 1991-95, the British GP was won 4 times by British drivers: Mansell (2), Hill and Herbert. Who won the other race?

    Alain Prost, 1993
  2. In the days of shared wins, the 1957 British GP was won by two British drivers! Name them.

    Tony Brooks and Stirling Moss
  3. Name the final winners of Grand Prix at Aintree and Brands Hatch.

    Jim Clark (by a furlong) (I'll get my coat)
    Nigel Mansell
  4. The first World Championship GP was in Britain in 1950. How many Alfa Romeos were on the front row.

    4 (out of 4), driven by Nino Farina, Luigi Faglioli, Juan Manuel Fangio and Reg Parnell. Ferrari were not present at the 1950 British Grand Prix, (they debuted in Race 2 at Monaco) so next time you hear Dominicali say "we've been here since the beginning" then take it with a pinch of salt.
  5. The British GP was held on St. George's Day in 2000. Who was the highest finishing Englishman?

    Jenson Button finished 5th behind David Coulthard, Mika Hakkinen and the Schumachers. If your answer was Coulthard, read the question!
  6. The British GP moves to June for the second time this year. Who won the only other June British Grand Prix?

    Fernando Alonso, 2006. The GP had been moved as the FOM thought that there'd be no audience for the race if it clashed with the FIFA World Cup final. As it was, the England vs Paraguay match was broadcast before qualifying. What was the score?

    England 1-0 Paraguay, Gamarra og
    . No bonus points, but pride if you got it right!
  7. Since it is not Michael Schumacher, which 2 drivers have historically won most British GPs?

    Alain Prost and Jim Clark
  8. For how many years (as of now) has their been a different winner of the British GP, year-on-year?

    6 (2003 Barrichello, 2004 Schumacher M, 2005 Montoya, 2006 Alonso, 2007 Raikkonen, 2008 Hamilton)
  9. Britain has had more World Champions than any other country (9). Given Clark, Stewart, Mansell and Hamilton, name the other 5.

    Mike Hawthorn
    Graham Hill
    John Surtees
    James Hunt
    Damon Hill

    We're talking Britain here, some extra questions are appropriate, we've barely scratched the surface!

  11. Britain has had 525 podiums! Who scored podium 500?

    Lewis Hamilton, runner-up in Monaco 2007

    100 was John Surtees(1) at 1963 German GP, (Jim Clark (2) scored 101!)
    200 was Jackie Stewart(2) at 1970 Italian GP
    300 was Nigel Mansell's Ferrari debut win at 1989 Brazillian GP
    400 was Damon Hill(2) at 1996 Hungarian GP
