Experience won this time - Christine's Rankings, Week 12

A new leader makes it a three-way fight for the top spot

Sidepodcast: Experience won this time - Christine's Rankings, Week 12

by Christine

Fernando Alonso's efforts across his Indy adventure and post-race graciousness have propelled him to take the top spot in the rankings this week. It's close at the top though, as three drivers are within three points of each other. However, just when you think it's safe, there are large points gains for other drivers too, including Nico Hülkenberg, and even Lance Stroll picked up a point.

Alonso calls out the media as Kvyat revels in home activities

Daniil Kvyat was still centre stage as he participated in his home race during the past weekend, but he wasn't the only one getting attention. Fernando Alonso still has plenty of eyes on him as he deals with the dodgy McLaren and prepares for his outing to America. There are points this week for all of the above, but also for having some fashion sense, for heading to the nightclub, and, as always, for cake!

Passing the time in the damp Chinese conditions

There were a lot of opportunities for drivers to show off their personalities during the Chinese Grand Prix weekend, mostly because of the enforced downtime due to poor weather conditions. There was also a lot of fun in the build up, with ping pong and karting, lots of training, and a brief view inside Sergio Pérez's room - both in a video tour, and a clip of some football that probably should have been taken outside.

F1 moves on to China which means adorable creatures galore

Three weeks in, and Lewis Hamilton is going great guns at the top - tapping into that secret weapon, the panda. It's not all fun and games for the three time champion though, as there's the small matter of an April fool that we need to discuss. Meanwhile, there are leftover points from Australia, and a few points for those drivers building up to the Chinese Grand Prix - whether by training, or by doing the corporate thing.

I think I can't complain - Christine's Rankings, Week 2

Verstappen has a better time in Australia than his teammate

It's no surprise that defending rankings champion Daniel Ricciardo had a quiet week after some turbulent times in Australia, but his teammate Max Verstappen was in full force and picked up a couple of points to get himself on the board in week two. Meanwhile, unlike in the championship itself, Lewis Hamilton has rocketed to the top of the leaderboard with some very respectful and reflect-ful times in Australia.

The only global driver rankings system that you need to worry about is back for 2017, with a set of fresh faces ready and waiting to be judged by me. If you're new to Christine's Rankings, then the object is simple - drivers receive points for doing awesome things and have points taken away for being rubbish, and it's all judged totally fairly by me, making it the most in-depth and accurate rankings system this site has ever seen.

You may have thought the 2016 F1 World Championship was a fiercely contested, tense fight to the finish but the season had nothing on this year’s Christine’s Rankings competition. After 39 weeks of battle, we crowned our winner for this year’s contest – the most in-depth and accurate global ranking driver system ever produced by me! Raise a glass and applaud the 2016 Rankings champion, Daniel Ricciardo!

It's been a week of surprises for the Formula One world, with Nico Rosberg announcing a shock retirement that seemingly came out of nowhere. Speculation is now rife on his replacement, but in the meantime the other drivers are busy winding down for the off-season. Button is looking for his new career, which may or may not involve being a doctor of some sort, whilst Jolyon Palmer displays some surprising quiz knowledge.

I got the point, it's fine - Christine's Rankings, Week 37

Kvyat faces questions as the championship reaches a conclusion

by Christine

The 2016 F1 champion may have been decided in Abu Dhabi, but the important fight is still going on. After this, there's just one week left for our drivers to campaign to win the Christine's Rankings championship, and it is still all to play for. Daniel Ricciardo has completed a spot of dancing this week, which has elevated him into the lead, but with a few days left for pointsworthy things to happen, and all the drivers winding down for the off-season, it's anyone's guess what will happen next.

I think in America it was a bit funny - Christine's Rankings, Week 35

From the highs of a great drive to the lows of a final goodbye

Sidepodcast: I think in America it was a bit funny - Christine's Rankings, Week 35

by Christine

This week was the incredible Brazilian Grand Prix, which overshadowed most of the antics any of the drivers got up off track. However, I've still managed to zero in on a few items, including Fernando Alonso making the most of his free time at Interlagos again, Max Verstappen admitting he is perhaps both brilliant and over-rated at the same time, and Felipe Massa for generally needing a great big hug.
