QUIZ: Get yourself ready for the new season!

Revitalise your F1 muscles by clicking here to take our new quiz!
It's been a long four months since the end of the 2011 season. In the meantime, there have been some serious distractions like Christmas and New Year to take your mind clean off F1. But now's the time to get your brain back in training for the 2012 season which is just days away from starting, and Crash.net knows just the thing to do it.

We've put together a brisk ten-part quiz to help revive your slumbering memories of what happened in 2011, as a way of helping get you prepped and ready to go for when the action starts in Melbourne on Friday. We hope you find the questions fun and entertaining, and that they jog your memories of the stories of the past year while at the same time getting you in the mood for what's to come in 2012.

Remember the marathon four hour-plus Grand Prix at Canada, for example? A last minute call-up there for Pedro de la Rosa helped put him firmly in the frame for a race seat at HRT in 2012.

Then there's the small matter of the Lotus Renault car that was a little too hot under the collar for its own good, along with plenty of other heated exchanges up and down pit lane as well.

And all the while Sebastian Vettel was setting records as he marched to his second consecutive world championship title ahead of Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso et al.

So are you ready for some questions? There's also a dose of F1 history included, and we haven't forgotten those who like a few good stats facts, too.

Just try and make sure you steer clear of Google, Wikipedia and all those other invaluable online repositories of knowledge (including Crash.net's own superlative news archives!) when you give the quiz a go - we wouldn't want you subjected to any post-race disqualifications, now would we?
