Next race: Chinese Grand Prix, Shanghai

DRS, KERS, Wheelie - Christine's Rankings, Week 24 // One final race to complete before the summer break begins

Published by Christine Blachford

Although the season so far has been up and down in its scheduling, there's no doubt the F1 paddock is ready for the summer break. After all the travelling, there are starting to be stresses and strains, and losing of marbles. This week in the Rankings there are points for speeches, for driving little toy cars, more extra-curricular activities, and generally being nice to the fans.

I always like to ask for you guys to keep an eye on what the drivers are doing for the rankings as your suggestions make a huge difference. For the next few weeks, it might be even more important as the sport hunkers down for a summer siesta. Keep your eyes peeled and do shout if you see anything pointsworthy!

Movements for Week 24

  • +2 Kimi Räikkönen: Participating in a charity motocross race, posing for heaps of photos, although never quite managing a smile.
  • +3 Nico Hülkenberg: Very fun track guide in the Sauber preview video for Hungary.
  • +3 Esteban Gutiérrez: Very fun track guide in the Sauber preview video for Hungary.
  • -2 Nico Rosberg: We've long since established that singing over team radio just doesn't work, no matter who is accompanying you.
  • +2 Felipe Massa: A special thank you from Felipe to his fans for the gifts they have brought him in Hungary.
  • +1 Jenson Button: Making a speech at the celebration of his dad's 70th birthday. Also have you seen the Smurf cake?
  • +1 Felipe Massa: Speaking up for Grosjean by saying his penalty was unfair. Not many drivers sticking up for Romain at the moment!
  • +1 Adrian Sutil: Joining Twitter at last, and getting to grips with the hashtag system very quickly!
  • -2 Lewis Hamilton: Awkward TV dedication to his ex-girlfriend. I feel sad for him, I do, it's a bit much. I don't remember him dedicating a race to her when they were together.

  • Wooooooooooo!! Back on top! Come on JB do more interesting things!! :)

  • Minus 2 for Lewis?

    Give the guy a break. He talks outside of the usual limited speak we get from drivers. He has just won and he is dying inside for her. I give him plus 3!!
