What an amazing season - eight different winners over the course of the 2012 season, including first time wins for Nico Rosberg and Pastor Maldonado. And yet despite that early unpredictability, the season still came down to a duel between a couple of two-time world champions both competing for their third title. In the end, Sebastian Vettel clinched it over Fernando Alonso after surviving an early scare in Sao Paulo, but it was a much closer-run affair than his championship victory of the previous year.
The facts and figures in our 2012 season review quiz sum up just what a different season it was from the Red Bull-dominated 2011 season. So can you remember the first driver out on track this season? The longest and shortest races, the slowest and fastest circuits, the youngest and the oldest drivers, who took pole position and which driver led the most laps? What about the total number of drivers who took part in 2012 and the overall number of pit stops that took place throughout all 20 Grand Prix races this year?
If you know this sort of detail then you'll be in racing hog heaven and surely come out with top marks; and even if you don't, a true F1 fan should still be able to work out the likely answers in our ten-part multiple choice quiz. If you do come out scratching your head at the end, don't worry - in that case, we think you'll come out of the experience enriched by some interesting and surprising trivia about the 2012 season as a whole.
As ever, try the quiz first time through without looking up the answers using Google or Wikipedia - and try to leave looking back through Crash.net'
s news archive until after your memory has been jogged by going through all the questions at least once. It's much more fun that way.
