F1 » F1 QUIZ: Get up to speed in time for Australia!

The car launches are complete, the drivers all announced (finally, and not without a few hiccups!) and the pre-season testing is over and done with. All that remains now is for the F1 cars to take to the track in Albert Park, Melbourne for the first race weekend of 2013. Excited, much?

This month's quiz ranges over the whole history of the Australian GP, from last year's race all the way to back before the event was even part of the F1 championship. Some questions will be easy, some a little more fiendish - but we reckon they're all packed full of information vitamins to get your brain into race shape for the season opener.

As always, it's more fun and satisfying to try the quiz first time through without looking up answers online, so try to consider Google, Wikipedia, Crash.net's news archives and other F1 references off limits. And don't forget to let us know how you get on using the comments section when you're finished.

Ready to start? The engines are revving and the lights are about to go out...
