F1 » F1 QUIZ: Test your recall about the flyaway threesome

It's not so long ago that the European stint of the 2012 F1 world championship came to an end at Monza with the third of three consecutive wins for McLaren, and a firm lead in the drivers championship for Ferrari's Fernando Alonso. But since then, it's been all Red Bull in the three flyaway races to Singapore, Japan and Korea - and now Sebastian Vettel holds the whip hand in the title battle. How things can change in just a month!

The Asian mini-season started with pole position for Lewis Hamilton and a penalty for Mark Webber, but after that the tide started to change in a big way. We've dug out a few nuggets from the trio of races about them and some of the other players in the F1 paddock over the last month, including a double dose of history in Japan and an unlikely fastest man on the track in Korea to help round out your memories of a pivotal time in this year's championship.

There should be a little something for everyone in the Crash.net Flyaway Quiz, so have a go at the 12 questions (to get the most fun out of it, try answering without the aid of Google, Wikipedia or other online references sources) and see how you fare.

Ready to get started? The first question awaits you below. Don't forget to let us know how you get on, using the comments section when you've finished!
