Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill run close together in the World Championship decider. Adelaide November 1994.

The 1994 Australian Grand Prix in Adelaide is infamous for one particular moment, but your latest F1 quiz challenges you to name the entire starting grid from that race.

Ahead of Formula 1’s return to Australia in Melbourne, now’s your time to test your historical knowledge of perhaps the sport’s most controversial race down under.

That season’s World Championship was decided in dramatic circumstances, but aside from the two title protagonists, a further 24 drivers took part in the race. Such was the reliability, however, only 12 made it to the finish line…

If you wanted to try another one of our quizzes, try our previous release, in which we’re looking for all 34 constructors to have taken part in Formula 1 since the year 2000.

On top of that, you can try Sportword – Planet Sport’s version of the five-letter word guessing game, with a new Formula 1-related answer to get every day.

Cast your mind back for now, though. Pato Banton’s ‘Baby Come Back’ was number one in the UK, the very first PlayStation had been launched in Japan a week beforehand, and 26 drivers got themselves ready for the Australian Grand Prix. Good luck!

NB: Both Pacific drivers, Paul Belmondo and Bertrand Gachot, took part in qualifying but did not qualify for the race.
