Good luck, and answers when I can get them up.
  1. Nick Heidfeld
  2. Olivier Panis
  3. Paul Tracy
  4. Brazil (Interlagos)
  5. 1982 San Marino GP, he was not classified, thus missing out on a debut point
  6. Took pole position. Toleman later became the title-winning Benetton outfit. Trace the lineage of the current Renault team back, and it begins at Toleman!
  7. Pole Position. JPJPJ would retire from a very healthy lead, and would unfortunately never win a GP
  8. 2006 Chinese GP, which the 7 time WDC won brilliantly
  9. Jacques Villeneuve finished 3rd at the 2001 Spanish GP
  10. Jean-Christophe Boullion
  11. Johnny Dumfries
  12. Monaco
  13. 4, Jonathan Palmer (Former BBC commentator), Michele Alboreto (Sacked because of his personal Marlboro sponsorship), Jean Alesi and Johnny Herbert
  14. Derek Warwick, Patrick Tambay and Francois Hesnault (With a small on board camera) all raced for Renault in the 1985 German GP
  15. Mika Hakkinen and Michael Andretti. The list had to be redrafted after Williams forgot to submit their entry
  16. Jean-Pierre Jabouille. In one head-to-head test, Brundle was pitted against Alliot at Paul Ricard, with a straw bale chicane in the middle of the Mistral straight. Alliot was initially slower than Brundle, but suddenly produced faster lap times. Jabouille was very pleased until he was told that the chicane had been removed for the quicker laps by Alliot.
  17. 2, Nelson Piquet (Brabham) and Keke Rosberg (Fittipaldi)
  18. None. Jacky Ickx, the 1967 European F2 champion was closest as he was runner-up in 1969 and 1970
  19. Alex Yoong for Minardi at the 2002 German GP
  20. Barcelona in the 2003 Spanish GP
10 & 1/5th (the 1/5th was for knowing how many drivers in Q13 but I couldn't remember a single name :embarrassed:)
