With so many knowledgeable people around (Yes Frank I'm thinking about you), I guess we can have some fun with this kind of game Very Happy. It goes more or less like the "Guess the track" or "Guess the car" one, answer correctly and the next quiz is yours Typical questions are about anecdotes, rarities, records, etc

I start:

Can you name the only two left-handed F1 champions in history?

But you play the guitar right handed?

This will end up like my former University soccer team, from 11 players 10 of us were left-footed and only one right-footed ... talk about statistics saying only 11% of population are left-handed Laughing

Easy Martin, ask a question about F1 2012 or 2013. It'll be impossible to answer for our Bible :jp:

Let's see if Guillaume knows this, maybe he is too young :

Which former motorcycle rider was known among the paddock as "elbows" due to his ability to touch with the elbows in the ground when leaning the bike extremely?

Yessir, It's Ruggia, well done

Spies is no doubt a great champion, but let him try that with slicks from the 80s Twisted Evil
