I managed 3 as well. I'm not sure what Q5 means TBY, were their only victories at their home GP? I wouldn't have known the answer anyway :D
A shocking 1 for me.

(though I'd like to award myself half a point for getting 50 percent of the name in question 2)
Joining C_a_T on 1 too.

I tried Panis at Monaco for Q5 but of course it's all technicalities there. Damn Monaco being a principality!
