    I am exited, but at the same time know I know far to few facts of Senna to get a top score, especially compared to some F1Fanatics! Ah, well here goes

    Keith, is there a way for user-contributed quizzez to be submitted?

    Rats, disappointed with 14! Loving the quizzes Keith, keep them coming!

    12 out of 20 : I’m quite satisfied, considering I was a very small kid during the Senna years :)

    I need to study before taking these quizzes, I got a score of 3 on the Schumacher one. I feel ashamed.

      I think if you study it’s a bit like cheating, I have scored badly but i know if i studied I would get near perfect scores. Also i am finding the spelling error help isn’t working and I think I am getting zero for those ones…. also the timer doesn’t display… Multiple choice with well thought out red herrings would work much better I think

    17/20 – not bad, as with the Schumacher one I was aided by having read “The Life Of Senna” very recently (an excellent book btw).

    Real shame it doesn’t tell us which ones we got wrong though…Keith, is this something you have looked at?

    3/20. Better than I expected, since Senna died before I was born!

    4/20!!! blast! I literally know nothing about the details of his career.

    • Mlracing (@mlracing) said on 12th August 2011, 17:16

      hey we got the same score. I thought i would have atleast 5 right :) . Anyway these quizzes are hard. Can’t believe people get more than 16 questions right on these quizzes while going from the top of the head.

  11. French Steve (@french-steve) said on 12th August 2011, 13:47

    15/20 : not bad for a guy born in 1984 !

  12. 10. Disappointed! Interestingly on the leaderboard it says I’ve done 5 quizzes, when to my knowledge I’ve only done 4, and there only are 4! I may be wrong though! I love this feature. I’d like to think some people are cheating – I thought that was very difficult and think most people would struggle to get the 18/19 that some people claim to get! It’s only yourselves you’re letting down… ;)

  13. 4/20 – Senna died three weeks after I was born, and I’ve never taken a great interest in his career.

    • Adrian J (@adrian-j) said on 12th August 2011, 19:06

      You should. I was only 13 when he died and as a Mansell fan never liked Senna. Then I saw the film recently and it woke me up to how brilliant he was (not just as a driver, but in getting the team around him etc) so I borrowed “The Life Of Senna” from my Dad and it is a fascinating read.

      If I hadn’t just read that book then I wouldn’t have had a clue about a lot of the questions..!!

    • Antranik (@antranik) said on 12th August 2011, 19:42

      17 out of 20

      And he died before I was even born, but I’ve taken huge interest in his career because he truly is, F1’s greatest ever.

    As a fanatic of anything Senna, I am disappointed with 18/20 lol. I was sure I got 20, oh well. Great quiz Keith, I wonder if Peter Windsor takes these quizes, I wonder what his score would be since his Knowledge is very impressive to say the least.

    Really would like to know which ones I didn’t get though!
