this is kind of tough
Apr 11th, 2009 at 05:14 GMT
I didn't know the city for the Bahrain GP. Wish I could put Indianapolis.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 05:58 GMT
Just Monaco should be accepted. The entire country is the city of Monaco and it's called the Circuit de Monaco.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 07:37 GMT
The plural of Grand Prix isn't 'Grand Prixs', it is 'Grands Prix'. Also, I agree with accepting Monaco. Monte Carlo is just an area in the city.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 08:21 GMT
13/17...I think I watch too much F1 :-/
Apr 11th, 2009 at 08:31 GMT
Wow none in the US. I agree also about accepting Monaco.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 09:01 GMT
Good quiz. I agree with Monaco. Also, the actual names of the Grand Prix, such as Hungaroring and Interlagos, not Budapest and Sao Paulo respectively. As that's what I was expecting from the quiz
Apr 11th, 2009 at 10:03 GMT
For once I can say as a European that it's a
that there are no North American answers here. I miss the Canadian Grand Prix and the US should have a race.
14/17, although I remembered 16 of the races. Forgot what the capital of Malaysia was (duh, that race was only six days ago!), didn't know the name of the place in Bahrain, and completely forgot Turkey had a circuit. Great quiz.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 10:05 GMT
It should accept Nuerburg, as entering an e after a vowel is the accepted alternative for a vowel with an umlaut in written German. I agree Nurburg should also be allowed or there would be issues with other languages, but still...
Apr 11th, 2009 at 10:29 GMT
Agree with Oliver, Hungaroring and Interlagos should be accepted, also Sepang for Malaysia. Have only ever heard the Bahrain GP referred to as that, never as the given answer. It's sad there's no French GP this season.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 10:36 GMT
The quiz does accept either Monaco or Monte Carlo already. Hopefully north america will be given a round to host next year and maybe even Africa can be represented by a South African GP Shame that both the San Marino GP and Hockenheimring arent there this year because those were the ones i used to be able to speed around on the old playstation games
Apr 11th, 2009 at 10:37 GMT
@DRB. The French GP was one of the most dull circuits on the calendar and the drivers hated the location. A shame that a great country like France is missing this year, but I can't say that same for Magny-Cours itself. The Canadian GP is the biggest loss from last season imho.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 11:00 GMT
Francorchamps should be accepted for Spa.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 11:10 GMT
Shouldn't "Sepang" be accepted for Malaysia?
Apr 11th, 2009 at 11:14 GMT
This is a really weird way to set up the quiz. The races are almost always refered to as, for example, the Hungarian Grand Prix so natural questions are `Near what city is the Hungarian Grand Prix held?' or `On what circuit?' But the choice of the hint means that, in effect, we're being asked, `What is the name of the city in which Heikki Kovalainen won his only Grand Prix last year?' That's several levels of indirection from a natural question.

Waiting for people to start bashing Grand Prix like they do NASCAR as its just the same thing on a different track.....I'll probably have a long wait.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 14:09 GMT
no f1 is sweet nascar is almost as borin as watchin a baseball game
Apr 11th, 2009 at 16:15 GMT
There shouldn't be 6 races between the Middle East and Asia. While North America gets the cold shoulder.
Apr 11th, 2009 at 16:22 GMT
this was real hard and watch every GP. i wish the country would be acceptable but then again anyone could get most of them. great quiz anyway!!
Apr 11th, 2009 at 16:29 GMT
17/17 :D, It is the sport I watch the most however so I'm actually glad I got that!
Apr 11th, 2009 at 16:31 GMT
i totally forgot about monte carlo :( im an idiot onli 7/17 must do better

Why is this labeled "2009" when it lists winners from the 2008 season?
Apr 11th, 2009 at 16:49 GMT
I agree davidr, was really disappointed by the cackhanded way tis was done, was expecting to name the track for each country. Not accepting Sepang is ridiculous
Apr 11th, 2009 at 17:07 GMT
Good idea, but should either be 'name all the countries that host F1 races in 2009' or 'name the circuits.' Also calling the location of the UAE race as 'Abu Dhabi' is like saying the location for the British grand prix is 'England.' The correct answer should be 'Yas Island' or 'Yas Marina'
Apr 11th, 2009 at 18:55 GMT
pearlmaj, it's because it lists the races for 2009, that's why races like Montreal and Fuji have been dropped while the Nurburgring has returned as well as Suzuka, and the addition of Abu Dhabi...
Apr 11th, 2009 at 19:33 GMT
Agree with what most people have said before. Circuit name's should be allowed as that's what most people know them as.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 07:05 GMT
@milkmeister: I agree completely that a e should be accepted in place of a vowel with an umlaut, and I'm glad to see that that has been made the case here. Nice work, Sporcle dudes. :-)
Apr 12th, 2009 at 11:31 GMT
Sepang should be accepted for the Malaysian GP, as that's where the circuit as actually located.
Apr 12th, 2009 at 11:34 GMT
it is no longer in Canada because the they annouced they were ahving finacial proplems but imo ithink its to do with a saftey issue because there is always so many crashes and its not in the US because Bernie Ecclestone (the owner of F1) couldnt "reach an agreement" with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner
Apr 14th, 2009 at 12:10 GMT
Real shame Montreal and Imola aren't here any more - Indianapolis was always a little dull though IMO. Best six Grands Prix, I think, are Melbourne, Montreal, Monaco, Spa, Sao Paulo and Sepang. Also, I agree - could we please have the track names accepted? Interlagos for Sao Paulo, Catalunya for Barcelona. And perhaps the clues (do we have to have clues anyway?) could be the names of some of the corners.
Apr 24th, 2009 at 21:34 GMT
@Joe_Ball Barcelona's track name is Montmelo, not Catalunya. But I agree that Indianapolis was normally dull. They should go to another track in Usa though.
May 8th, 2009 at 21:04 GMT
This makes no sense, it's a mix of track names and city names. Who in the entire history of motor racing has said the German Grand Prix takes place at "Nürburg"?
Jun 22nd, 2009 at 16:44 GMT
United States has essentially nothing to give to F1. Most of the drivers are from Europe, teams are European (or based there) and that's why I think most races should be in Europe. Montreal is nice and that should be added but Indianapolis is just not cool. Unimaginative track. Some money people will shove Danica Patrick to F1 to gain attention from her gender/looks and we'll see her flop. Finding it too hard to turn both right and left in the same race or something. (I know some IRL races are on street/proper race circuits but...)
Jul 16th, 2009 at 07:47 GMT
gr8 one but i think the name of the track should accepted
Sep 13th, 2009 at 21:36 GMT
woop woop 100%, @ wasmachien surely u can't complain about spa its only 3 letters. i agree with a lot of people i tried sepang first and tried bahrain and manama before i remembered sakhir

Dammit missed Australia. But I think it should accept country
Mar 11th, 2011 at 10:10 GMT
all right with 2 and a half mins to go. oops. lol good quiz. :)
Dec 15th, 2012 at 09:20 GMT
I'm sure it's Kuala Lumpar not Kuala Lumpur?
Dec 27th, 2012 at 05:55 GMT
Wasted a lot of time typing in nurbergring nerbergring nurburgring Sao Paulo interlagos Barcelona catalunya in the end just gave up and let the time run down .... Rather disappointing when your right
