V.Good. Well done to Fergy and Integrali (whom I suspect of cheating...)

Sorry, number 9 is wrong (or at least that wasn't the one I was thinking of...)

So, answers to:

7.a. Which F1 race was won in the pit lane?

b. Who won it? Integrali got it: Schumacher

9. Which driver accepted a test drive for Lotus with a broken back?

Man, the next one has to be much harder...

Shall I do it or does someone else want to?

Lotus

9. I know Zanardi had broken bones, some in his back I believe, but yes, I didn't figure he was the guy you meant.
Lotus seems to have had a penchant for hiring broken test drivers!
Don't know the intended answer...


QUOTE Was that all knowledge or did you use a book?

What, and give away my secrets?


Some was stuff I knew or had an idea about. Confirmed the ideas and found a couple of the answers in a web search. I'm not an encyclopedia on this stuff, by any means!
