We have another F1 quiz for you to tackle today, and your task this time around is to name all 17 drivers to race for Benetton.

Benetton raced in Formula 1 for 16 seasons overall and they managed to finish in the top three in the Constructors’ Championship on eight occasions and winning the 1995 title outright, showing their competitive power in their time in the sport.

You can also add 27 race victories and 102 podiums to their roll of honour, as one of the key players in Formula 1 in the 1980s and ’90s, before they left the sport at the end of 2001, to be taken over by Renault.

A selection of World Champions raced for the team in their time and driver turnover was relatively low, with 17 people getting behind the wheel in their 16 years – including those to race with the team for only part of a season.

Your goal on this F1 quiz is simply to name each one of them. You have eight minutes to do so, and your only clue is the years for which the drivers were active with the team. No clues on nationality – we didn’t want to make it that easy for you…

After you take on this challenge, be sure to try another one of our brain-teasers. Why not try your hand at naming the drivers to have the most race starts without winning a grand prix?

On top of that, make sure you have a go at Sportword if you haven’t already. It’s Planet Sport’s version of the five-letter word guessing game, with six attempts to find a new Formula 1-related word every day.

But for now, go through your mind and find each person to drive a Benetton in their time in F1. Best of luck!
