    I’m kicking myself for not getting that the first time around!

    OK here we go. What connects these races:

    1977 Canadian Grand Prix
    1982 German Grand Prix
    1990 Brazilian Grand Prix
    2001 Brazilian Grand Prix

    @blockwall2 Ah of course: All corners at Magny-Cours!

    @blockwall2 They all contain corners or straights named after drivers.

    Sage Karam gets an Indy 500-only deal again which is better than nothing but like a lot of people I think he deserves a full-time ride:

    http://www.indycar.com/News/2017/02/02-02-Karam-Dreyer-Indy-500

    Incidentally that press release credits him with “a 32nd-place finish in that year’s Indy 500”, which is a very polite way of saying he crashed out on the first lap:

    But like I say, I think he’s better than that…

    They’re keeping the announcements coming – ex-GP2 squad Durango (who briefly tried to enter F1 at one stage) will have a two-car team:

    DURANGO JOINS WORLD SERIES FORMULA V8 3.5

    This steady drip of press releases from the organisers has the feel of being choreographed, nonetheless it is encouraging to see more names appearing.

    Today it’s another newcomer: Italian Damiano Fioravanti will drive for RP Motorsport. So that’s eight drivers in the field so far.

    Egor Orudzhev returns with AVF, that’ll surely make him the title favourite.

    Orudzhev’s 2016 team mate Aurelian Panis won’t be back however, he’s signed a deal to race in the World Touring Car Championship.

    At the other end of the field Giuseppe Cipriani will be back for another season. He is revising the Il Barone Rampante name for his squad and says he will have a second driver as well.

    @theawesomefish @eurobrun @lolzerbob @ben-n @jackysteeg I suggest we adopt the practice used in the programme that the first person to spot a legitimate connection between all four wins that round and the quiz moves on. Otherwise we’re going to have a lot of ‘that’s not the connection I was looking for’ replies which I think could get a bit tedious.

    Shall we do that from the next question, and in the meantime perhaps @theawesomefish can offer a tip on this one which clearly has everyone stumped!

    The first rookie driver for 2017 has been announced: Diego Menchaca forms an all-Mexican line-up at Fortec alongside Celis.

    Hamilton’s latest – keep an eye out for the weirdly inaccurate mirror:

    @geemac Yep that’s true, that was back when the tracks gave out individual prizes, some tracks did it that way.

    But this thing NASCAR have up with… there’s no other way to describe it, it’s truly F1-level over-engineering.

    @hunocsi was first in with the right answer: They all have more than one pit complex.

    (Incidentally, I’ve always wondered about the tiny one at Suzuka before 130R. Is that a pit or just somewhere for course vehicles?)

    Anyway, over to @hunocsi for the next question…

    @fjbh10 Again, in the right area, but not the right answer…

    No one’s got it yet though a couple of you are in the right area…
