So, a top 10 quiz for a race with 6 starters? The top 4 from qualifying make a cameo!

1. Michael Schumacher has only finished outside the Championship top 4 once before in a year he completed every race. Which one?

1997... He was not classified!

2. Since his début in 1993, Rubens Barrichello has scored the third highest number of points. With Michael Schumacher obviously in third, who leapfrogged the Brazilian into second this year?

Stat accurate after 2010 British GP

Fernando Alonso

3. Tiago Monteiro scored Jordan's 19th and last podium at the 2005 USGP. There are 6 other drivers to score podiums for Jordan. 1/6th of a point for each.

Barrichello (1994 Pac, 1995 Can), Irvine (1995 Can), Ralf Schu (1997 Arg, 1998 Bel, Ita), Fisichella (1997 Can, Bel, 2003 Brz), Hill (1998 Bel), Frentzen (1999 Aus, Brz, Fra, Ger, Bel, Ita, 2000 Brz, Usa)

7. When Jarno Trulli retired from the 2010 Bahrain GP, he became the first man to retire a Lotus in F1 since whom?

I expect better mathematics from the site moderators, jez.

2 and 2/6. Surely you must reduce it to its simplest form of 2 1/3!

1 & 1/2. I know, must do better..!

(Thanks to TBY for alerting me to the foibles of algebra and allowing me to avoid forgetting to find the lowest common denominator. It was 1 & 3/6 really!)

For the record, I deliberately left it as 2/6 as there were 6 answers required for one of the questions.

2 points for me.

(though thanks to the fractions system I got all 6 drivers correct and only get 1 point for my efforts)

I was considering it. :whistle:

Don't do that! I've only got a lowsy 2 again :)

As soon as we get into historic questions I've got more chance of winning the pools than I have of picking a right answer ;)
