Old F1 circuits quiz

There’s currently 24 different circuits on the Formula 1 calendar, the most there’s ever been.

But over the years more than 70 different tracks have held Formula 1 races. Here’s a multiple-choice quiz to test your knowledge of circuits that have previously hosted an F1 race.

The Formula 1 calendar is the busiest it has ever been. 2023 saw a line up of 23 circuits and 2024 has bumped it up to 24, with the re-introduction of the Chinese Grand Prix.

In 2023 the new addition to the calendar was the Las Vegas Grand Prix held on the Las Vegas Strip circuit.

The Las Vegas Grand Prix joined Singapore, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia as night races, taking the total to 5.

It also means that there are now three races in the USA each year. Vegas joins Miami and Austin as cities which host Formula 1 Grand Prix in the States.

As a reminder before you get stuck in to the quiz, these are the circuits currently used during the 2024 F1 season. These will NOT be included in the quiz below.

  • Bahrain International Circuit – Bahrain
  • Jeddah Corniche Circuit  – Saudi Arabia
  • Albert Park Circuit – Australia
  • Suzuka – Japan
  • Shanghai International Circuit – China
  • Miami International Autodrome – USA
  • Imola – Italy
  • Circuit de Monaco – Monaco
  • Circuit Gilles Villeneuve – Canada
  • Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya – Spain
  • Red Bull Ring – Austria
  • Silverstone – Great Britain
  • Hungaroring – Hungary
  • Spa Francorchamps – Belgium
  • Zandvoort – Holland
  • Monza – Italy
  • Baku City Circuit – Azerbaijan
  • Marina Bay Street Circuit – Singapore
  • Circuit of the Americas – USA
  • Autodromo Mexico – Mexico
  • Interlagos – Brazil

Old F1 circuits quiz

The first official Formula 1 race was held at Silverstone circuit in the UK in 1950, shown in the image below. Since then a total of 77 different circuits have held F1 races.

Of those 77 tracks, 24 are still in use. That means that there’s 53 other circuits that have held at least one Formula 1 race that are no longer used for the sport.

With the sport’s ever increasing popularity (largely thanks to Drive to Survive) and its seemingly unstoppable expansion to more countries and circuits, I thought it would be good to take a look back at some of the circuits of the past. 

Some of those will have been temporary street circuits, others would have been permanent race tracks that may well still be in use today, just not for F1 races.

The Quiz

So it’s time to put yourself to the test. 

This quiz is not meant to be easy. I’ve designed it to weed out the weak. Only the most die-hard F1 and motorsport fans stand a chance of getting full marks.

There’s 15 multiple-choice questions. In each of them you’ll see an image of a circuit map and will have to choose which ex-F1 circuit you think it is.

Put your brain in to gear. No cheating! Or you’ll be summoned to the stewards.
