QUIZ: The story of 2012 in Vettel's own words

Here's how three-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel described his season. Can you match his words to the race he's talking about? CLICK HERE to have a go!
Having seen the end of 2012, it's time to bid a final fond farewell to the most recent F1 season with a recap of the year courtesy of none other than three-time world champion Sebastian Vettel.

In this quiz, we get Vettel to sum up 12 of the 20 Grand Prix events of the season in his own words. All you have to do is decide which quote applies to which race. Simple, right?

All of Vettel's words here come from Red Bull Racing's post-race summary of the Grand Prix at the time. That means you'll have read them here in Crash.net and other online motor sports sources over the course of 2012. But can you remember which one is which without going back through the archives to check?

Some are more obvious than others: we've tried to leave in some clues for you so that the quiz is fair, but that doesn't mean it's all that easy, either! Even looking up stuff in Google and Wikipedia may not be all that much help to you on this occasion, so unless you want to trawl back through all the stories of 2012 the best way is just to plunge in and see how much you can recall or work out by yourself.

Here's a couple of helpful hints: 12 questions means that eight Grand Prix events aren't represented here. But we're not going to tell you which! However, we don't use any Grand Prix more than once in the quiz, so once you're certain that a quote applies to a specific race then you can count that GP out of the multiple choice options from then on.

Ready to start? Then simply CLICK HERE to take the quiz. We hope you see off 2012 and begin 2013 in style with top marks - don't forget to let us know how you did by posting your score or feedback in the comments section. Otherwise, good luck - and here's to a great new season to come this year!
