F1 » F1 QUIZ: An Autumn in Asia

F1 has headed to Asia once again for the latest phase of the 2013 world championship, and so far Sebastian Vettel has had it all his own way and after the latest of a string of consecutive wins he's on the cusp of nailing his fourth consecutive title next time out in India.

But before that happens, there's just time for a Crash.net quiz to allow us to take a breather and also to take stock after the frenetic back-to-back action of Korea and Japan. As well as those two races, we've also got questions about the Singapore night race that kicked off this latest phase of the F1 season, and we also throw in a little history (both recent and somewhat further back) while at the same time looking forward at things to come in the remainder of the season.

Not bad for just ten questions, is it? We've given you a good mix of subjects this time, from things you really should know fairly easily if you've been watching the races and reading the Crash.net coverage, to other little bits of information that might just catch you out unless you've got a truly voracious, unstoppable appetite for F1 trivia!

Truly something for everyone this time, then. As ever, to get the most enjoyment out of the quiz then try to avoid looking up the answers first time through and steer clear of sources like Google, Wikipedia and even the inestimably comprehensive news archives on Crash.net, as you'll have far more fun torturing your brain cells that way.

Ready to start? The first of the questions is below. We'll see you on the other side. Good luck, and remember to tell us how you did with a quick post in the Have Your Say comments section on the news story when you're done!



Question 1. Let's start all the way back in Singapore. Sebastian Vettel was on pole position for the Grand Prix, but who was alongside him on the front row when the race got underway - this driver's fifth front row start of 2013?
