F1 » F1 QUIZ: September Silly Season Special

F1 is back in action after the August hiatus, and it seems to have returned turbo-charged - at least if the fever-pitch speculation and gossip in the F1 paddock about the driver market is anything to go by. With Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso locking up the top two spots on the track in both Spa and Monza, we thought we'd focus instead on the off-track news for this month's Crash.net F1 quiz.

So how much do you really know about Red Bull Racing's new signing, the all-smiling Daniel Ricciardo? Kimi Raikkonen's move back to Ferrari means the end of Felipe Massa's tenure at Maranello and could also mean Nico Hulkenberg is left out in the cold despite his stunning run at Monza for Sauber, a team with an impressive pedigree of developing future F1 stars. And now Mark Webber is retiring, who will be next in the spotlight of being asked whether he's really getting too old for all this, especially if teenager Sergei Sirotkin makes his bow next March as planned?

Lots of questions to dig into with this lot, and you'll need to be up on your recent F1 history (or a very lucky guesser!) to score the highest marks this time around - although if you're not then this will be a treasure trove of information for you about the drivers on the move at the end of 2013.

Are you ready to give it a try? The questions start below. Steer clear of looking things up in Google and Wikipedia (and even our own news archives!) first time through if you can, and take pride in your achievements by letting us know how you did in the comments section once you're finished!

Question 1. It was Daniel Ricciardo's confirmation at Red Bull that finally unlocked the frozen driver market. But for which team did Ricciardo make his F1 race debut halfway through the 2011 season?
