I seem to remember one of the Lotus engineers in an interview saying that his tyres were still reasonable, but he got onto the marbles and lost tyre temp for a couple of laps. I'll have to see if I can dig up the quote.

the answer is correct. a reasonable tyre will not lose grip by making contact with the marbles.

the lotus team anticipated 2 stop, and pit kimi for used medium, expect him to come in again, but they change their strategy, leaving kimi running half of the race distance on that used medium. If they switch to 1 stopper earlier, they could've pitted him for fresh medium.

One of the many Lotus 's blunder strategies in this season.

Kimi says "I ran out of grip in the tyres as they faded"

Does "Kermit" count as an answer for 11?

22/26 for part two, so a combined 42/51 for me :D

Sky had 26 questions for second part, fail.

Sky now appear to have realised their mistake, the quiz is now 50 q's long. The '2nd' question 25 is not on there now. So actually got 22/25, and 37/50

Part 2 Questions.

http://www1.skysports.com/formula-1/new ... -Questions

Did remarkably well, but I thought this was the easiest quiz of the season.

22/25 + 23/25 = 45/50

Here we go then with the first 25 questions in our end-of-season challenge...

1. The start of the season produced how many different first-time 2012 winners in succession?

2. Jenson Button won the season-opener in Melbourne, but at which point of the race did he overtake McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton for the lead?

3. Fernando Alonso brilliantly won the European GP in Valencia but where did he start the race from on the grid?

4. At which race did Lewis Hamilton rack up his 100th GP start?

5. Name two of the three other drivers who reached the century of starts in 2012?

6. Michael Schumacher finished on the podium for the first time since his comeback at the European GP in Valencia. At 43-years-old he became the oldest driver since whom to do so?

7. Fernando Alonso fell one race short of Michael Schumacher's record tally of consecutive points finishes when he was taken out of the first corner at the Belgian GP. How many straight races had he racked up points in until then?

8. McLaren's early-season results were compromised by a string of problematic pit stops, but at the German GP in July they recorded F1's fastest ever pit stop. How long did the stop take?

9. Which team protested the Mercedes's Double DRS system at the Chinese GP?

10. Mark Webber's first pole position of the season came in Monaco, but who did he inherit the position from?

11. What item of track 'scenery' was flailing from Lewis Hamilton's McLaren in the closing stages of the Korean GP?

12. What was the Sauber radio message to Sergio Perez that prompted a wave of conspiracy theories at the Malaysian GP?

13. Romain Grosjean picked up a one-race ban for causing the multi-car pile-up at the start of the Belgian GP. Besides Fernando Alonso, which drivers were forced into immediate retirement?

14. Fernando Alonso led the World Championship by how many points heading into the August summer break?

15. Why did Kimi Raikkonen plummet to 14th place in the closing stages of the Chinese GP?

16. What did Mark Webber deride Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina circuit as being - prior to the venue staging arguably the most exciting grand prix of the year?

17. How many positions did Fernando Alonso lose in the closing six laps of the Canadian GP by not pitting for tyres for a second time?

18. Timo Glock claimed the Marussia team's best-ever finish in Singapore, what was it?

19. Which team skipped Practice Two in Bahrain in order to leave the circuit early after some of their mechanics were caught up in a petrol bomb incident on local roads in the build-up to the weekend?

20. What part of their car did Red Bull have to redesign following an F1 technical directive issued after the Monaco GP?

21. How many consecutive laps did Sebastian Vettel lead between the Singapore and Indian grands prix? (As it's a tricky one, we'll give you the point if you're within 25 laps of the answer).

22. What was the significance of Sebastian Vettel's 34th career pole position in Japan?

23. What ground Lewis Hamilton's MP4-27 to a halt while in the lead of the Singapore GP?

24. Nico Hulkenberg pulled off one of the passing moves of the season with a double overtake of two cars during the Korean GP. Which two drivers did he pass?

25. Why was Sebastian Vettel handed a 20-second time penalty in the hours following the German Grand Prix?
