This week, 5Live F1 had a most excellent season preview, and those taking part in the show have benefitted from points this week. Taking some time out of your evening to talk to Jake Humphrey on the radio for the listening pleasure of us fans, that is the kind of thing I want to see.

Equally, this week there are points taken off for a couple of teams, and points handed out for charitable endeavours.

Movements for Week 5

  • +6 Team Lotus: +4 for some excellent behind the scenes photos of taking photos. +2 for Mike Gascoyne participating in the 5Live season preview.
  • +4 Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team: +2 for a rather fancy car display. +2 for Ross Brawn participating in the 5Live season preview.
  • +2 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes: +2 for allowing the Comic Relief video.
  • +2 Lotus Renault GP: +2 for Eric Boullier participating in the 5Live season preview.
  • +2 AT&T Williams: +2 for Sam Michael participating in the 5Live season preview.
  • -3 Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro: -3 for changing their name yet again, and it being a symbol that's tricky to find on the keyboard.
  • -10 Marussia F1 Team: -10 for Richard Branson pulling out of the air stewardess flight. Scheduling issues is no excuse.
