It has been brought to my attention there was a factual error on Question 1.

My intention was to spotlight the last non-Champion driver to drive car ?1 for a full season, which was
Ronnie Peterson in 1974
. However, it has been brought to my attention by cider_and_toast that for one race
in 1985, John Watson replaced Niki Lauda in car ?1 due to injury.

For this reason, points for
remain, but for guessing
you will be given an additional point.
