3.5 points. With Q4 - Monaco was kicked off the calendar for a few years after the wave took out half the field

Tough one, also 3.5 points (I gave myself 0.5 for Q5) with a lucky guess for Q9, and with this:
Isn't Toyota the latest who qualified on the last row in 2009 with Trulli and Glock?

It doesn't ask who the last to qualify on the back row; it asks who was the last to start on the back row. And Lewis Hamilton was pushed down to last for a gearbox change!

3 points.

Normally I'd be jumping up & down at the prospect of a MASSIVE 3 points, yet I feel strangely deflated at not have a .5 in my score... :unsure:

Oh yes, I see. Sorry for the misunderstanding, and it seems I didn't remember this detail. :givemestrength:
So, then I got 2,5 points.

4 for me.
The fascinating thing is that Clark went on to become 1965 WDC without having competed at Monaco. Such was the measure of his dominance and greatness.
