There’s no escaping it, centuries are a big deal.
For starters, who could forget Kevin Pietersen’s masterful innings at The Oval against Australia in 2005, when he fended off the fearsome bowling quartet of Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Brett Lee and Shaun Tait to fire England to Ashes ecstasy?
Then there’s racking up 100 years of age. If you’re lucky enough to become a centenarian, and a citizen of the Commonwealth realm, then you can look forward to a telegram from none other than the Queen herself.
And while a telegram from Her Majesty isn’t on the horizon for Carlos, he’s got a century of his own to celebrate at the United States Grand Prix. In the space of just four years, the Spaniard has competed in 99 Formula 1 races and, this weekend, he’s set to hit a century even though he’s still only 25-years-old.
For many of us, Carlos has become our Spanish hermano de diferente madre (brother from another mother). But the question is, just how well do you know the man who goes by the name ‘Chili’?
There’s only one way to find out: quiz! So, crack open a bottle of Estrella Galicia 0,0 and vamos!
