Despite facing some challenging questions, all three drivers managed to correctly identify legendary driver Niki Lauda. 

However, they encountered more difficulties with the remaining answers. Sebastian Vettel was correctly guessed by both Russell and Schumacher, while Ricciardo was only identified correctly by Russell. 

George Russell impressively identified Albon, Mansell, and Button correctly.

In addition to these correct answers, Schumacher and Hamilton successfully identified their own famous namesakes, Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton, as well as the iconic Ayrton Senna.
