F1 » F1 QUIZ: Get ready for the brand new season!

Hardly seems any time at all since the F1 teams were packing up their equipment in Brazil and looking forward to putting their feet up and having a quiet time over Christmas, does it? Now it's all hands on deck again, as preparations for the 2013 season step up to fever pitch with just a month to go before the first race of the year in Melbourne, Australia.

Have you been keeping up with the developments over the winter that will no doubt shape the action in the forthcoming title battle? There's been car launches, driver signings, and of course the first round of pre-season testing as well.

If you've been paying attention then this first quiz of the new season will be a snap; and if you haven't, then it should provide you with a handy recap of some of the events that have been happening so far in 2013, and will get you into shape ready for the maiden Grand Prix on March 17.

As always, the quiz is best experienced first time through without looking up answers online via Google, Wikipedia, Crash.net's news archives or other F1 references sites. That way, you can let us know how you get on using the comments section when you're finished.

Ready to start? The first question is below - best of luck to you!

Question 1. Who recently dismissed Mark Webber's chances of winning the 2013 drivers championship, saying that the Australian would struggle under the pressure and "can't maintain this form throughout the year"?
