Quiz: Name all F1’s FP1 guest drivers since 2011

The club of Formula 1 grand prix starters is an exclusive one. F1 ‘grand prix weekend participants’ is slightly less so, thanks to the modern convention of giving new drivers a run-out in first practice.

Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have not done it in the last decade, but every other team has called upon FP1 stand-ins, either bedding in a future signing or just renting out a seat for a price for 90 minutes.

Your task in the below quiz is to name every FP1-only driver since 2011. Many of them parlayed those FP1 drives into a proper F1 career, but just as many of them did not – and because of them, this is a tough one!

Only those who actually did a lap in FP1 were included, so that means no Callum Ilott, whose planned Eifel GP practice debut was rained out.

Let us know how you fared in the comments below or by tweeting to @wearetherace, and be mindful of spoilers.
