If you tried our most recent quiz, you might be thinking it helps you with this one…but to be honest, it barely will!

Last time, we challenged you to name the 10 drivers who had made the most grand prix starts in F1 history without winning a race.

Now we are asking you to come up with the 20 with the most starts regardless of whether they have ever won or not – and we can tell you only one of them failed to reach the top step of the podium.

Inevitably, therefore, this is all about the greats of F1, the drivers who kept going year after year, and clearly they will have had plenty of success to enjoy such lengthy careers.

As they are household names and generally pretty easy to get, we have set quite a short time limit for this one of seven minutes. But we would like to think you will get somewhere close to a full house!

And in terms of clues, well, we cannot make it too easy by giving nationalities or teams, or even their active seasons, so all you have to help you is the number of starts each driver has made.

Oh and another little hint…you will spot quite a few of the drivers in the image above from one of the early editions of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Of course, if you want to test yourself even more, why not go back to our aforementioned quiz for those 10 drivers who made the most starts without a win – as we said earlier, there is only one that features in both!

And if you want a crack at some of the others we have created over the last couple of months, just type ‘F1 quiz’ into the search bar on PlanetF1 and a list of them will appear.

Also, to fill in a quiet moment or two, you can tackle Sportword, Planet Sport’s edition of the five-letter, six-guess word game which gives you a different Formula 1-related word to find every day.

For now though, it’s all about naming those F1 stalwarts. Good luck…and don’t forget to let us know how you fared in the comments section.
