Ok the rules are as follows. Someone will ask a question, whoever gets it right 1st gets to ask the next question. If no one gets it the poster asked another till someone gets it right. Please refrain from using Wikipedia and other sources of information as your only cheating yourself,everyone here seems like they have the knowledge about this great sport so cheating is unessesary.  

Question: When did Felipe Massa last lead the drivers championship?

I'm not sure the internet would even help in this instance as nobody cares enough to record Massa's career stats.

"He has the speed of Casey [Stoner] but the brain of Valentino." ~ Honda's Livio Suppo describing Marc Marquez.

"Everything will be alright in the end. If it is not alright, it is not yet the end." ~ Paulo Coelho

Over the years the racing car has changed and the necessity for the sensitive and precise handling of the faster, lighter grand prix cars of the post war era, emphasised the need for a more subtle and controlled driving technique. Fangio, with his iron self-control and uncanny skill, met this demand with contemptuous ease, to set a style that raised the art of racing driving to the height of a new science. 20 years earlier in 1937, that great French driver Jean-Pierre Wimille, then at the height of his fame, said of Fangio "I have seen at Buenos Aires a brilliant new driver, the day he has a real racing car to drive, he will perform miracles”.

Wasn't that the race where Johnny had something like a screwdriver or spanner or something under his pedals? I am pretty sure it was something like that.

If I am right:

Olivier Panis broke both his legs in Canada in 1997 and Michael Schumacher broke one of his legs at Silverstone in 1999, how many races did they each miss as a result of these injuries?

Yes that is correct


The answer to your question is 7 races for Olivier Panis who returned for the Luxembourg GP and Michael Schumacher missed 6 and returned at the Malaysian GP where he took pole.

Iam pretty sure that's correct so ill go again

Why did Michael Schumacher change his helmet from white to red mid 2000?

Hmm I don't know the helmet answer though, will leave that one for someone else.

Barrichelo,

Now I may or may not be right, but here's the next q... who is know as pooka in F1?

We keep on working, we do our thing, Vettel shouts over the team radio,We are who we are!

"Vettel is a champion. That’s not referring to his achievements, but rather to his approach to everything he does. He wins. All the time. His preparation is meticulous, his attention to detail reminiscent of Michael Schumacher at his peak, and his performance on the track is almost always flawless. Vettel is capable only of domination. He knows no other way... Vettel is not in Formula One to be liked. He is there to win. And in the words of Ayrton Senna, perhaps the greatest of all Formula One drivers, “Nice men don’t win.”"
Chris Cameron-Dow


"One might be tempted to say Ferrari are inconsistent this year. I think the opposite.
They are having one very good race followed by one very poor race. Consistently.

I know Moss finished runner up a lot but I'd be surprised if it was the most times.

There you go!
Yup, actually he shares the accolade with Prost, both with 4 seasons as runner ups. I am surprised about people mentioning Barrichello. He only ended up as runner up twice.

Okay, I suck at coming up with these kind of questions. Mostly because my knowledge is not that good so it's hard to find something I know which everybody else wouldn't. So, who won the most F1 titles?

Kidding.

The question is: of the currently active F1 drivers, who has won the most GP's that were interrupted by a red flag (including GP's that were completely stopped or restarted later)? For a bonus, name the GP's. If you have the memory to do that, you scare me.

Not too difficult Posted Image

Edit: Oh, and yeah I completely forgot about Prost! Probably if I'd been French I would have forgot about Moss and remembered Alain.

Sounded more difficult than it actually was! The answer is, of course, Alonso Posted Image  And yes, I will never forget those races! Let's see...we have Nurburgring in 2007, the race that guy in the Spyker led when the deluge arrived! Then you have one of my favorite races from Nando: Korea 2010. And last but also least, last year in Malaysia.

But now that I think of...Jenson as well? He certainly won that one in Malaysia 2009 with the half points awarded and the amazing win at Montreal and perhaps some other?

I also remember Vettel at Monaco in the race that he was about to lose with his tires shot but  they allowed to change tires. And Nico this year at Monaco as well. And then there's Interlagos 2003 which was stopped after nando crashed heavily, although I think that one was not won by any of the current drivers.

EDIT: Interlagos 2003 was won by Fisico! I forgot! And of course I cheated and looked up if my reply was right :P
Yup, Alonso is the man, and Button only won 2.

Damn, I am just like you, I suck at making trivia questions:
Which team was sponsored by a pop group? Name the group!

Yup yup. For anyone interested the leader in this category was Prost who won 7 red flag races. Senna and Schumi won 6, and Damon Hill won 5.
