F1 » F1 QUIZ: 2013 - a champion's year in his own words

So as we ring out the old and look forward to the starts of a brand new season in 2014, there's one last opportunity to look back at the events of the season just concluded. We thought we'd do it with the help of a unique tour guide - the words of none other than four-time champion Sebastian Vettel!

Here are his comments on all 19 of the races in the 2013 F1 season. Can you work out which of the races he's talking about in each case? It's not always very easy to distinguish one Grand Prix from another just from a driver's own post-race comments, but that's the challenge facing you in the final Crash.net quiz of the year.

One 'hint' we'll give you is that there is one question (and quote) for each and every race: no Grand Prix is left out or duplicated in ths questions this year. That means that if you find that a later quote clearly refers to a race you've already tried as an answer then you might need to rethink and backtrack.

All the quotes have appeared in Crash.net and other F1 news sources over the year, but do try and steer clear of checking back through the archives if you want the most fun and satisfaction out of the quiz - although Google and Wikipedia are unlikely to help you all that much this time.

Ready to start? The first of the quotes from Sebastian Vettel awaits you below. Let us know how you did by posting in the comments section when you're done!



Question 1.
I messed up today. I would love to come up with a nice excuse as to why I did it, but I can't. I can understand Mark's frustration and the team not being happy with what I did today; I owe an explanation to him and the whole team... We could have ended up finishing eighth or ninth after destroying the tyres in those two laps; I put myself above a team decision, which was wrong. I didn't mean to and I apologise. I'm not happy I've won, I made a mistake.
