Excellent stuff TBY, especially the Jacques Villeneuve Snr question I must have missed him. Who was he driving for?
He drove for Arrows in a couple of qualifying sessions - he was 5 seconds behind his brother at the 1981 Canadian GP! He is profiled at F1 rejects, who clearly couldn't resist the temptation to put Jacques Villeneuve on the site, given the opportunity!
I concur with Boyle99, another excellent quiz! I also got a grand total of ONE right!*

I shall just have to revise more, i suppose....

* In the spirit of good will, can I have a half point for getting this answer
They both had the same drivers
