  1. Keith, when are we going to be able to see the answers upon completion? I don’t think we can learn anything if we never get told what we get wrong. Unless this is happening and it just doesn’t show up for me… but i’ve never seen the answers to a quiz on here.

    1. Yes, we should definitely get answers to our replies after a while (maybe a week, to allow people to take the test first). I scored 11 on this McLaren quiz but out of the 20 answers I felt sort of condident on maybe 14 of them. I want to know which 3 I got wrong!!!

    2. Message me the answers after you see them so I can a get 100% score. ;)

      1. Preferably the answears should be released after the quiz has ended.

  2. This is devilishly difficult, I’m amazed I got 14 correct. Yay me. Anything from the 60s, 70s and 80s is guesswork so yes I’d love to see the answers also!

  3. I scored 6! Could be worse. I wish that we could see the answers though.

    To be fair most of the answers are a quick google or flick through Wikipedia away if you want to know where you went wrong. I imagine Keith doesn’t post them because the quizzes technically never end, they’re always available.

    1. They just need to be shown after you take the quiz, like any other online quiz.

  5. Dropping the chrome livery was the biggest failure outside of the technical and driver exodus.

    Whoever decided to drop the most beautiful livery and most ownable looking into the future (outside of red) should be fired..

    1. Ah but the chrome livery weighed 3KG over other paint jobs due to the pain, and cost them a 10th a lap … probably the reason they only won one championship in 17 years

      1. Yes the championships are returning without the chrome.

        Good point.

  6. the second half was really tough. happy with 12

    1. There’s another Rood on F1 Fanatic?

  7. This is really a f1 fanatic quizz! I’d be amazed if the casual viewer could score more than 2 out of 20 :-)

  8. Yes please, there is not enough sense of completion without being able to know which ones we even got right or wrong. It’s just, here’s your score, the end.

  9. Got “11” but I guess that only counts for a 0 since I ran out of time on first go, with a timer that you can’t see unless you keep scrolling up to it… And then it’s a system of only first results count? If it isn’t going to show us the answers afterwards, what’s the point?

    These quizzes are great but the system being used is truly, truly awful, there are so many better quiz templates out there that can be used.
