    13. I wonder what some of the answers were. I thought some of them may have been trick questions as it advertises itself as the hardest F1 quiz and some were 2 easy

    "Who is the third most recent person to die during an F1 Grand Prix Weekend" is a bit on the nose as questions go, I feel.

    9/21 for me :( Pissed off that I remember reading the answer to the 1971 Italian GP question in an encyclopaedia I used to own but I just can't quite remember it...

    To try and put answers together:

    1. Clearly the Lotus has the tusks
    2. The option without Heikki, the trick there is the lady is Jochen Rindt's Finnish wife, who collected the trophy on his behalf.
    3. "The rain is coming down harder and it's getting less dry", I'm sure I remember the other 3.
    4. I don't know my 'taches. Mansell in the middle, Rosberg bottom? No idea about top so can't get the right answer.
    5. Yellow walled tyres are soft.
    6. That's the old Monza.
    7. Odd road car out? Ferrari F40, Pagani Zonda, Mercedes-Benz Mclaren SLR, Fiat Seicento and Infiniti Q50. I think Pagani as the others have badged F1 engines?
    8. I think this is a trick question, as all those teams have tried 6 wheeled cars. Ferrari had 4 back wheels though, so perhaps them?
    9. 1961 introduction of 1.5 L engines
    10. Paletti as de Angelis was killed testing.
    11. White Flag is slow car on track
    12. Convinced Montoya holds the top speed ever for F1.
    13. French race track? I think it's Reims which was dropped after 66
    14. Cevert in 3rd
    15. Rubens must be above DC, doubt Webber is close.
    16. Deliberate crash
    17. I don't think 1200 rpm is fast enough for an F1 tyre at 200mph
    18. Spanner
    19. Wikipedia reckons Marco Apicella holds the record with just 800m, although I thought Perry McCarthy only made it to the end of the pitlane in his single F1 race, perhaps he got free practice though.
    20. 20,000 litres of air per minute? No idea. An article from 2005 suggests Honda's F1 wind tunnel used 1000 m3 of air per second, so I doubt it's that. Can't see wheel guns using that much. An article online suggests at 18,000rpm an F1 engine consumes 27,000 litres per minute, so with the reduced rpm that would fit.
    21. Ensign N179

    That list scores a disappointing 17/21. 4,7,8,17,19 would be my guesses for the wrong ones.

    On 6 wheels I thought it may be hesketh. I would have thought Ferrari would have tested something

    I believe you're right. Ferrari dabbled with 4 wheels being bolted to the rear. Basically 2 front tyres stuck together in pairs. Never raced though.

    on six wheels the question is didn't protest it, so I went March as it was the only other 6 wheeler I can remember racing. I had it in my scaletrix set, it was easily the best car, the principle worked as it didn't fly off at full speed around the banking like the others did, like the lotus.
