  1. 17 for me. Nice one Keith!

  2. 8/20 Somehow I keep failing these quizzes :(

  3. Some recent stuff

  4. I was going well until the moment I pressed Enter by mistake… only had answered half the questions, I think, and got 10. So for me it is 10/10 rather than 10/20…

  5. Urgh, I only got 1/20. I only watched the last two races of 2008 and that was the year I got into F1 but I was still hoping I could do better

  6. 14/20. This I think is the best score I’ve had from any of the quizzes. 2008 is a personal favourite season of mine.

    1. I was 12/20! And I agree, 2008 was a fantastic season. First full F1 season I watched. I was hooked, especially after the drama of Brazil 2008!

      1. @thrillerwa09 Exactly. There were many of the big manufacturer teams, 7 race winners, Hamilton won at Silverstone, and as you say that last race was exceptional. To win the title on the last corner of the season just says it all. Good score btw!

  7. 20 out of 20! Genuinely delighted with that!

  8. 11/20. Not bad for me.

  9. Loved it. Finally a recent enough quiz for me to get a good score, 19/20 :)

    Got 12/20, is there answers for the ones we got wrong?

    also, 2008 wasn’t the third straight year with a new champ. Alonso was a repeat champ in 06.

    1. It means that there was a different champion every year in 2006-2008 (which continued on until 2011). Alonso in 2006, Kimi in 2007, Hamilton in 2008(, Button in 2009, Vettel in 2010)…

      (or was it edited after your comment…?)

  11. 20/20. Not too bad, about time I got one of these quizzes spot on :P

  12. 13/20, my recollection of what happened behind the front runners was a bit hazy.

  13. 19/20

    I looked back and now know which question I got wrong ;)

  14. 11/20! What a disappointment!

  15. 19/20
    Not bad, not bad at all.

  16. 18/20 – Not bad for first timer!

  17. I thought I remembered 2008 fairly well, but I only managed 8/20. Those questions were tough :x

  18. One of the few quizzes I had taken previously (without remembering). Instead of the last score of 0, I got to 4. However, I didn’t have time to answer the last 5 questions.
    I did follow the season in 2008 but in much less detail so the questions are quite tough!

  19. Only 6/20, very disappointing :(

  20. 17/20

    Far better than my usual score, but 2008 remains my favorite F1 season to date (since watching around 1991-92).

  21. 19/20. I realized after watching the questions again that I answered #17 wrong.

  22. 8/20 – I’m useless, but I have an excuse (I didn’t really follow F1 at that point because I wasn’t very old)!

  23. Keith,

    It’d be really nice to have some answers to these questions too!

  24. 20/20! Probably helped that I re-watched the entire season just a few months ago…

    not sure to be happy or not :)
    ah, the 2000’s, the good old days…

    10/20. Finally somewhere “high”er up!

    The Canadian GP was the 1st GP I saw, I think, or perhaps Monaco. But I got the Rosberg question wrong!

  27. 20/20. I sorta cheated on 2 questions, but at least I admit it. Best finale, but 2005 is still the season I remember most, after starting watching F1 in 2000 when a certain German seemed unbeatable. That is probably the source of my Alonso love affair…

  28. 20/20. Pretty good. I didn’t think that I remebered this season so well
