The Jake Yorath Quiz: #4

Welcome to the slightly-difficult or sometimes fiendishly-hard motorsporting quiz. There’s a series of questions, and one answer links all of them. Good luck!

  1. Jacques Villeneuve and Ricardo Zonta were revealed as team-mates for the 1999 Formula 1 season, alongside their distinctive BAR car. But what was it about the car that the FIA took umbrage with, forcing a change before the season?
  2. What was “The Small Family Car” that caused uproar at the BBC, forcing a coverage blackout as Auntie Beeb clutched her pearls and left the venue?
  3. Which ex-F1 driver won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, STW and BTCC for the same manufacturer?
  4. Who are the only pair of brothers to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans?
  5. The 2021 Haas F1 car raised some eyebrows on its reveal. Why?
  6. With which team did Stefan Johansson score a surprise podium at the 1989 Portuguese Grand Prix, one of the finest underdog performances of all time?
  7. Which team, with a menacing all-black livery, dominated the ALMS’ LMP2 division between 2011 and 2013?
  8. Why did Martin Brundle’s 1996 F1 car change colour (not just because he turned it floor-side-up at the Australian GP)?
