F1 QUIZ: China and Bahrain - how closely did you watch?
The 'travelling circus' that is modern F1 has completed its first four flyaway races of 2012 and now heads back to Europe for a short break, a bit of testing - and then some races at 'proper' tracks in May at Barcelona and Monaco.
You can't say it hasn't been unpredictable, with four different drivers from four different teams occupying the top spot of the podium in the first four Grand Prix events compared to three wins for Sebastian Vettel by this time in 2011. But all that unpredictability can make it hard to remember just what's happened so far - and Crash.net is here to help you sort out that jumble in your memory attic.
So let's check and see just how much you can recall about the two flyaway events that took place in April, with the Chinese Grand Prix on April 15 and the controversial Bahrain Grand Prix the following week on April 22.
It's more fun and fulfilling if you try answering the questions without resorting to help, so that you can take pride in your memory and attention abilities rather than your prowess of using Google and Wikipedia, or of thumbing through Crash.net's own hallowed news archives for the answers!
Let us know how you fare using the comments to tell us just how well you've been paying attention to the rollercoaster ride of F1 so far in 2012 ...
