    1. 3/20. And I got 4th. Probably won’t last, though.

    2. Great quiz, want to know the answers now!

        @reynard88d, I can give you mine so you know the wrong answers ;-)

    3. 4… But I’m 22nd. I wish I was alive in the eighties!

    4. No point in me taking that quiz, I know nothing about the previous turbo era :(

      To be fair, I’d have trouble with a quiz about a season more than 2-3 years old. I watched avidly and followed all the tech too, but I remember little.

    5. @keithcollantine

      Looking at the Quiz leaderboard, it appears I have taken only 26 quizzes. Is there a way to know which ones I have not done ?

      Also, some members have taken 38 quizzes, while it seems there is only 34 available (seasons: 9; drivers: 12; teams 2; races: 11). How come ?

    6. The only quiz till now that really made me embarrass!! :P

      1. I’m even worse than you.

    7. There should be a quiz version “Turbo era for dummies”. That actually might not be a bad idea for all quizzes for the period of 1950-1990-ish.

      But then again, this is F1Fanatic… but then again, this is not Historical F1Fanatic and a lot of readers were not yet even born in the Turbo era.

    8. 11. delighted with it. First few were impossible for me

    9. absolutely no clue. thought i might get the odd point for a lucky guess but i didn’t.

    10. The amount of pollution in that picture is absolutely brilliant

    11. 16/20 and I was born in 1984 !
      I’ve read a lot of F1 books and magazines since I’m a teenager. ;)

    12. Patrese’s first name’s spelled “Ricciardo” in one question! Muscle memory or something…

    13. 10/20! pleasantly surprised
