Great that this quiz is on the front page on the same day as the first race of the new season! I cannot believe I missed Jim Clark :(

Good quiz. Not much of an F1 fan but did ok. Given how many Germans drive currently I'm surprised more Germans haven't won it in the past.

There probably would have been one more, but he died in an accident in the penultimate race in 1961.

23 out of 32. Got the major players in the game and the tragic figures ( e.g. senna died in tragic accident, nikki lauda sustained lifelong injuries due to racing accident and ofcourse Michael Schumacher experienced a tragically pathetic tailend to his career...he couldn't quit while he was ahead. But can not take away the fact that those three are some of the greatest drivers in f1..even if only because they each won multiple f1 world year end championships).

What you mean by saying that Schumacher could quit while he was ahead? He didn't sustain injuries in the car but while skiing if I'm correct

Tragically pathetic? How many F1 races have you won, Bob?

One of the most tragic is also Jochen Rindt who did not participate in the last four races because he crashed and died at Monza, yet he won (posthumously) the championship in 1970 because he had a sufficient lead.

I expected to do better; I guess I've forgotten a lot since the height of my F1 mania 15 years ago. I got everyone since 1988 except Button (should have remembered him) and a scattering of others before that. I'm berating myself for not thinking of Fangio, Piquet and especially Lauda, given there just was a movie about him.

Probably watched every race in 1996 but still could not come up with Damon Hill. Got stuck on 'Nigel something'.

I'm at that age (and possible early onset memory condition!) where I can't remember names. So I knew that there was (Brits) Jim and Mike and John, and the American Joey guy from Ferrari, but in the time I couldn't force their surnames. Joey turned out to be Jody. But I surprised myself in that I knew everyone from the last twenty years except for Kimi. But I don't follow Formula 1 like I used to. When I typed in the pictured guy and four years in a row came up, I was shocked!

Some of the least guessed drivers have the most amazing stories: John Surtees won the Formula One and als also the Motorbike championship; Rindt was already dead, when he became champion; Farina was the first champion ever.
