MotoGP » MOTOGP QUIZ: A final look back over 2012

18 races have passed since the MotoGP riders took to the track in Qatar, and the title battle came down to a two-man duel between Jorge Lorenzo and Dani Pedrosa, while two former champions - Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner - were also making headlines with their plans for 2013.

All in all, there was a lot happening this year, and before we start to set our sights ahead toward the new season we'll just take a pause for one last recap of the racing year that's just drawn to a close.

From winning margins and fastest laps to retirements, missed races and Casey Stoner's shock announcement that he was quitting MotoGP altogether, we've endeavoured to give you a testing taster of 2012 in a bite-sized ten question puzzle pack.

Ready to start? The first question is below. But before you get underway, set aside those handy online references sources that you love so much like Google, Wikipedia and's own indispensable news and results archive so that when it comes time to brag by posting your final scoring achievement in the comments section, you'll know it was all the work of your own little grey cells!

Good luck, and see you on the other side ...
