F1 » F1 QUIZ: Green flag for the 2013 quiz season

After all the car launches and pre-season testing, it was wonderful to see the cars actually lined up on the starting grid at Albert Park, Melbourne for the first Grand Prix of the year in Australia. And who was expecting Kimi Raikkonen to claim the first victory of 2013? By comparison, the winner in Malaysia was far more predictable: and yet nobody expected Sebastian Vettel to blatantly ignore team orders to do so.

Lots been going on then, and we're only two races into the season. Have you been keeping up and following all the events from the two rounds so far? If so then you should cruise through our first F1 quiz of the 2013 season! Five questions apiece on the events of Australia and Malaysia, and nothing too tricksy this time so that you can ease back in after the offseason over the winter.

Who was fastest and when, who led and who was penalised: if you were paying attention during the first two race weekends of the year then this should be a welcome cool and refreshing breeze. To keep you on your toes we have thrown in a couple of history questions as well, to give the events of 2013 a broader context.

Try it first time through without trying to research the answers on Google, Wikipedia, Crash.net's news archives or other F1 reference sites, and you'll be much prouder of your achievement when you share them using the comments section after you've finished.

Ready to start? The green lights are coming on one by one, and it's time to Go! Go! Go! with the first question below ...

Question 1. Here's the traditional Crash.net curtain raiser question for the start of the new quiz season: which driver was the first to come out on track for action in Melbourne on Friday morning at the start of FP1?
  Question 1 of 10
