F1 » F1 QUIZ: Celebrating the Best of British!

While every F1 Grand Prix is equally important, don't you think that there's something just a little special about the British GP - even for fans, drivers and teams from elsewhere all around the world? The next Grand Prix on the 2013 F1 world championship calendar is the British GP at Silverstone on June 30, and we can't wait!

We thought it would be a fine idea to help everyone get into the spirit with a 'Best of British' quiz that looks at the history of our favourite event of the season and which is also a celebration of British world champions down the ages since the very first in 1955.

How many times has a British driver won the British GP? Who is the only British driver to have won the event five times in his career? How many times has the 'British GP' also been the 'European GP'? These and many other questions may or may not await you in the following pages, if you're up for the challenge!

This should be a good test of your knowledge of the history of the sport, but don't worry if you're not an expert - you'll have some fun and learn some interesting facts along the way all the same. Do try keeping away from Google and Wikipedia the first time through, though - and even resist consulting Crash.net's own news archives if you can! And once you're done, do let us know how you get on by using the comments section to impress us with how much of a British Brainbox you are.

Question 1. Silverstone has been the home of the British Grand Prix for an unbroken run back to 1987, and recently signed a long-term renewal to keep the race - until which year?
