F1 » F1 QUIZ: Who said that in 2013?

While we're still in this long barren spell with no new F1 Grand Prix races until Spa at the end of the month, we have the opportunity for a recap of the 2013 world championship to date - but one that takes a uniquely different slant to things.

For one thing this summer quiz is only interested in the winners of the 10 races so far. It's not as varied as 2012 where we seemed to have virtually a different driver win every race in the first half of the season, with Sebastian Vettel having claimed four victories and Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg two apiece with just one each for Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton; but do you think you can tell which race they're referring to in their quotes, given immediately after the race either during the podium interview or the official FIA post-race press conference?

Here's where you find out and impress us, either with your memory skills or your 'ear' to pick out a driver's voice and the key clues about the race, just from what they're saying. All the quotes have appeared in Crash.net but steer clear of the archives, Google, Wikipedia and the rest if you want to enjoy yourself and honestly earn that warm-glow of self-satisfaction at your final score.

The first question is below; don't forget to let us know how you did via the comments section!



Question 1. "Obviously a long time from the victory here – eight years. Definitely it was nearly a perfect Sunday for us, with not any problem in the race. The start was clean; it was good. We managed to overtake Kimi. And then in the first stint we managed to pass Lewis as well."
