Sergio Perez vs Lance Stroll - which SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team driver will be on point? 🎯 ... See Less

Comment on Facebook

If it wasn't for daddy Stroll would not have a place in F1 simple as that.

The last section was tough compared to other teams.

Even I knew about the Hunt helmet of Kimi 🙁 and Checo race against him. I didnt know Magnussen father was on F1 as well :O

are stroll a driver?! really?!

Man but thats not fair, redbull and ferrari questions was level 1, this is level 100

Sergio in absolute shock looking at that picture of him and Ocon squeezing at Belgium lmfaooooo

Whos daddy bought a team so you can have a seat?

hakkinen good very good but not a legend for me.

Special needs F1 drivers...

Perez, as usual, kicking teammate's ass, no matter the name..

Kimi when asked to come and record grill the grid with Antonio "just leave me alone I know what I want to do"

Lol, Perez out smashed him also this time

Kevin c'est ouf comme ils sont nuls, j'en ai trouvé plus qu'eux ! Rien que la dernière question c'était tellement facile

I forgot that Lance and Sergio are team mates xD

Killed me how long it took them to name hakkinen


Simon Klug stroll😍
