F1 » F1 QUIZ: Did you weather the heat in India and Abu Dhabi?

The focus of the latest two Grand Prix races in India and Abu Dhabi was on whether anyone could do anything to stop Sebastian Vettel from running away with the 2012 drivers' title. No one could touch him in the first, and even being forced to start Abu Dhabi from the pit lane couldn't stop the young German from claiming a podium finish in the end.

But there was plenty else happening away from the world championship battle - if you were paying attention, that is! Who was fastest, who was slowest, who made their first appearance. Penalties, crashes and a surprise winner awaited us in the desert, all of which we've attempted to wrap up into a handy ten question recap of the most recent two Grand Prix events, which should contain something for everyone no matter their area of interest in F1.

Pretty much all the answers have already been covered in the pages of Crash.net over the last month, but try not to trawl through the site or resort to Google, Wikipedia or other F1 reference sites if you can - it really is much more satisfying if you manage to extract the knowledge from your own head or figure it out yourself.

Ready to get started? The first question awaits you below! Do let us know how you get on using the comments section when you're done. And - good luck!

Question 1. Toro Rosso's Jean-Eric Vergne was fastest through the speed trap in India in both qualifying and the race, just as he had been in Korea. But who was the SLOWEST of the 24 runners there, over 12km/h off Vergne's pace on both days?
  Question 1 of 10
