For this F1 quiz, we pay tribute to one of Formula 1’s most recognizable faces, Martin Brundle, as we ask you to name where he achieved his 9 podium finishes.
Martin Brundle might be best remembered as the guy doing the grid steps, but he’s so much more than that.
In the 90s he drove for some of the top teams alongside drivers who would go on to etch their names in the history books of Formula 1.
Although he never reached the mega heights of a race victory, Brundle was a very good driver himself. Winner of the 1990 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 1988 24 Hours of Daytona and the 1988 World Sportscar Championship.
He also finished runner-up in the 1983 British Formula 3 season, having endured a season-long battle with future Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna.
Although he didn’t hold the longest list of achievements in Formula 1, Martin certainly knew how to drive a fast car.
Brundle has competed in 165 Grands Prix, with 158 starts. He raced for teams such as McLaren, Benetton, Williams, Brabham, Tyrell and more, and partnered with F1 big names like Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello.
He finished with nine podiums in his career – two second places and seven third places. Say what you want about him short of a race win. Riding and driving a Formula 1 car is commendable enough, let alone a podium finish.
Martin Brundle deserves far more recognition for his career other than his grid rides, so on our behalf we’ve created this F1 quiz inspired by his nine podium finishes.
You have to name the nine races he has won on the podium in his career. We are looking for the country name this time, not the Grand Prix.
And if you liked this quiz, take up yesterday’s challenge: Charles Leclerc’s 13 pole positions.
