OK, I'll set the benchmark.
After careful consideration of the questions, I scored 3.666666666666667!* :thankyou:

* Or, more sensibly put, three and two thirds.

Why two thirds? That part of my score came from Q4, where I got two out of the three parts correct. :rolleyes:

A massive 2 for me :chuffed:

I did get 2 of the GPs in question 4 correct but not the years.

Well I astonished myself with a massive 4, or 4 2/3 if you count only getting the Grand Prix names in Q4.

Question 4 dispute

You do not need to name the year(s) to get the third of a point for Question 4. You only need to name the non-national Grand Prix, eg. Abu Dhabi GP (its in the UAE!)
