Today’s F1 quiz takes you back to the last running of the Argentine Grand Prix in 1998, and your challenge is to name the 22 starters for that day.

The 1998 season was an interesting one, as there was a reshuffling of the order in the grid that saw McLaren-Mercedes emerge as the fastest constructor.

This was the year of McLaren’s last Constructors’ title to date, and their main driver ended winning his first World Championship at the end of the season.

The Argentine Grand Prix of that season wasn’t anything too special, but it is noteworthy for being the last time Formula 1 raced in Argentina.

Your challenge today for this F1 quiz is to name the 22 drivers that started the 1998 Argentine Grand Prix.

You might be thinking, getting you to name all 22 drivers may seem a little excessive, maybe it could have stopped at the top 12.

But there are names towards the back of the grid that are well-known within Formula 1 history, names that we believe you can work out.

And if this test isn’t enough for you, try giving yesterday’s quiz a try: Name the 10 youngest drivers to start a Grand Prix.
