Can You Guess The F1 Driver From The Google-Translated Version Of Their Name?

Google Translate comes up with some unusual offerings for the translated version of the names of some F1 drivers - can you work out who's who in this quiz?

The other day I was heavily procrastinating when I suddenly wondered what would happen if you typed an F1 driver’s name into Google Translate - as you do. I set the input box to ‘detect language’ and left the output in English. Many of them just came up as the drivers name (Fernando Alonso became Fernando Alonso, for instance) but a few ended up being rather amusing, so I’ve compiled them into a quiz for you to see if you can guess who they are.

Some are obvious, others require a bit more thought, while the rest… well, they’re pretty much pure nonsense. Good luck!

If the quiz doesn’t work straight away, please try refreshing the page - that should do it!

It’s also worth noting that all of these were correct when I wrote this on 11 July, 2019 - they may have changed by the time you’re taking it.
