F1 quiz: Every Italian driver to win a F1 grand prix

Italy may have arguably the most well recognised team on the Formula 1 grid, Ferrari, but the country has also produced several F1 races winners, 15 to be exact, and this forms the basis of our latest F1 quiz.

Two of those drivers have even won World titles, three Drivers’ Championships between the two of them, but it has been almost 70 years since Italy had a Formula 1 World Champion, and more than a decade since an Italian driver last won a grand prix.

That wait will be extended this year as there is not a single Italian on the Formula 1 grid, the sport having bid farewell to Antonio Giovinazzi at the end of the 2021 season.

He, however, did not set the Formula 1 stage alight, the former Alfa Romeo driver’s best result a P5 at the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix.

But before him 15 of his compatriots did, can you name them all?

We’ve already peppered you with plenty of tricky quizzes and, if you fancied another challenge after this one, take on our last quiz, where we have asked for the highest-scoring drivers without World titles.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Planet Sport has launched its own Wordle spin-off called Sportword, and we at PlanetF1 have a Formula 1 word each day for you to try and guess – be it a driver, team, track, corner name, and plenty more besides. You get six attempts at finding a five-letter word, you know the drill.

But in the here and now, we’re looking to Italy for you to find their 15 race winners in the history of Formula 1. Be warned, you’ll have to dig through the decades to find everyone on this list. Good luck!
