    That first question was insane! HAHAHA!! Just a poor result, 5/10. Turkish GP’s history isn’t long, and quite modern… I’ve should have done better ;) What will be the British GP’s quizz with more than 59 years of history?! I’m waiting for it already! Some question should be related to bend names :)

    Hmm, getting better at (guessing): 4/10.
    I guess that chicane before the left hander on to pit straight is 2 corners. I forgot how to count.
    Go Felipe, make it 5

    Woohoo! 7/10 this week.

    Not bad, got Q4,7 & 8 wrong. Couldn’t remember the fine amount and should have known the others! Oh well still pretty good.

    Does make it easier when the history of the race is only very short to remember more about it! hehe
