Hoped I'd do a little better but I open my account with a 2 1/2. Better than some I did from the great back catalogue of quizzes though :s Soon you could do a quiz on previous quizzes! :dizzy:

Using the Spesh calculator I got 3 1/2 which I have to admit being quite pleased with as that was a toughy.

I have to admit to being quite surprised that
Hamilton
doesn't figure in Q1.

Me too, I would have thought he would have been in there.

5 6/7. Got only that best American thing right from the questions that were based in earlier days of World Championship.

Hamilton made his d├ębut at 22, the cut off line for top 20 is 21y 1m 12d (Christian Fittipaldi), and hence lies 38th on the list behind Kubica and Raikkonen. Its funny, he arrived at a top team at the same age (roughly) as Alonso, Kubica and Vettel but since they did a year in F1 too early then he hadn't served his apprenticeship, apparently!
