    8/20 Somehow I keep failing these quizzes :(

  3. Some recent stuff

    I was going well until the moment I pressed Enter by mistake… only had answered half the questions, I think, and got 10. So for me it is 10/10 rather than 10/20…

    Urgh, I only got 1/20. I only watched the last two races of 2008 and that was the year I got into F1 but I was still hoping I could do better

    14/20. This I think is the best score I’ve had from any of the quizzes. 2008 is a personal favourite season of mine.

      I was 12/20! And I agree, 2008 was a fantastic season. First full F1 season I watched. I was hooked, especially after the drama of Brazil 2008!

      • Deej92 (@deej92) said on 14th June 2013, 1:17

        @thrillerwa09 Exactly. There were many of the big manufacturer teams, 7 race winners, Hamilton won at Silverstone, and as you say that last race was exceptional. To win the title on the last corner of the season just says it all. Good score btw!

  7. JackySteeg (@jackysteeg) said on 13th June 2013, 13:32

    20 out of 20! Genuinely delighted with that!

    11/20. Not bad for me.

  9. Enigma (@enigma) said on 13th June 2013, 13:39

    Loved it. Finally a recent enough quiz for me to get a good score, 19/20 :)

  10. Chiz (@a-flying-toilet) said on 13th June 2013, 13:45

    Got 12/20, is there answers for the ones we got wrong?

    also, 2008 wasn’t the third straight year with a new champ. Alonso was a repeat champ in 06.

    • tmekt (@tmekt) said on 13th June 2013, 15:56

      It means that there was a different champion every year in 2006-2008 (which continued on until 2011). Alonso in 2006, Kimi in 2007, Hamilton in 2008(, Button in 2009, Vettel in 2010)…

      (or was it edited after your comment…?)

  11. 20/20. Not too bad, about time I got one of these quizzes spot on :P

  12. AdrianMorse (@adrianmorse) said on 13th June 2013, 14:03

    13/20, my recollection of what happened behind the front runners was a bit hazy.

  13. 19/20

    I looked back and now know which question I got wrong ;)

  14. Fixy (@fixy) said on 13th June 2013, 15:57

    11/20! What a disappointment!

  15. Kingshark (@kingshark) said on 13th June 2013, 16:07

    Not bad, not bad at all.

  16. ASN (@ninefiveasn) said on 13th June 2013, 16:40

    18/20 – Not bad for first timer!

  17. George (@george) said on 13th June 2013, 17:42

    I thought I remembered 2008 fairly well, but I only managed 8/20. Those questions were tough :x

  18. Mike Dee (@mike-dee) said on 13th June 2013, 18:34

    One of the few quizzes I had taken previously (without remembering). Instead of the last score of 0, I got to 4. However, I didn’t have time to answer the last 5 questions.
    I did follow the season in 2008 but in much less detail so the questions are quite tough!

  19. Diceman (@diceman) said on 13th June 2013, 18:58

    Only 6/20, very disappointing :(
