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 :(

Mar 17, 2013
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.

Von Trips?

Yes.

Level 51

And maybe also Stefan Bellof. He was really talented in a bad Tyrell car until his death. He even closed the gap to Senna while in third place at the Monaco GP 1984 before his car failed.

Level 67
Jul 19, 2021
Rindt also won posthumously

Level 64
Jun 22, 2022
Yes, Jochen Rindt was born as German, too. But as he raised in Austria, he also started for his "home country"
+2
Level 38
Aug 7, 2013
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).

Level 44
Feb 1, 2018
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
+17
Level 80
Mar 25, 2018
Tragically pathetic? How many F1 races have you won, Bob?
+4
Level 74
Mar 25, 2018
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.
+1
Level 57
Oct 14, 2022
To be honest Senna's crash shouldn't have happened...He almost didn't participate in the race after Roland Ratzenberger's death the day before. If only he knew...

Shouldn't The Stig be on here somewhere?

Level 68
Apr 23, 2014
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'.

Level 44
Feb 1, 2021
You did well. I think that I must be getting old as I could see a picture of Hamilton and couldn't remember what his name was, but no problems picking off Surtees, Brabham, Jones, Fangio etc.
+2
Level 56
Mar 15, 2015
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!

Speaking as a Brit, we can't take credit for Jones. Definitely Australian.

Considering how recently Nico Rosberg has been added, I'm surprised it only has 86% guessed since he has only just won it.

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.
+1
Level 57
Oct 14, 2022
Keep in mind that Rindt only won because Jacky Ickx refused the title

Not saying Rindt didn't deserve the title, I'm just stating facts here.

I didn't write Verstappen because he shouldn't be champion. He's still great driver and the mess was not his fault!

Level 70
Mar 20, 2022
It's a shame really - the 2021 championship will always be remembered as controversial with the fastest driver on the day having it taken away on the last lap. I do hope Verstappen wins in 2022 to prove he is actually an F1 champion.

Mar 21, 2022
Ah yes, the old "crying" comment! I've watched F1 my whole life, but the embarrassment of watching elite sportsmen and engineers having thier work undone by WWE-insipred faux-sports-entertainment was too much for me! The whole thing was a shambolic display of manufactured rating-counting which left the true fans angered, embarrassed and dejected! I'm sure you must be a true sports-fan of you're happy for those in charge to change the rules at the drop of a hat to make for "exciting endings"...? In the last 2 minutes of the World Cup final, why not make the penalty box 30 yards bigger.... or have 8 pockets for the snooker final... or have tries worth 10 points! Pretty sure that would be considered a joke?
