Fresh from racing in Singapore, Formula 1 welcomes back another much-loved race this weekend: the Japanese Grand Prix.

Just like the Marina Bay circuit, the classic Suzuka track has been starved of Formula 1 action because of the Covid pandemic cancelling races over the past few years.

But with normality restored, we’re all set to return to a circuit that is adored by drivers and fans alike.

However, it’s not just your knowledge of Suzuka that is going to be needed for this F1 quiz…

Since the Japanese Grand Prix was first recognised as an official Formula 1 World Championship race all the way back in 1976, Suzuka has been one of two hosts, the other being Fuji which has hosted races in 1976, 1977, plus 2007 and 2008.

With 10 minutes on the clock, we’re asking you to name the 18 different drivers to win the Japanese Grand Prix.

To help save you some time, surnames of said drivers will be permitted and, for an extra hint, those who have only had the pleasure of winning once in Japan, we’ve given you the year of that solo victory. Aren’t we kind?

And, as always, there is our Sportword puzzle to solve. You have six attempts to guess the mystery F1 term and a new answer is available daily so be be sure to keep coming back for more.

Now, without further delay (we had enough of those at Singapore over the weekend), here’s today’s F1’s quiz. Good luck!
