A big feed and a beloved ice bath - Christine's Rankings, Week 3 // In which testing comes to an end but the drivers still get points

Published by Christine

With the final pre-season test done and dusted, the drivers are set to melt into the background for a while as they prepare for the racing next week. Not long to go now, and they've been doing their best to make sure they're ready for the season. Kovalainen was a little under the weather, Webber appeared to watch a little bit too much TV, and Petrov has quite a lot of homework to do. Points galore in the rankings this week, and don't forget to keep your suggestions coming.

Movements for Week 3

  • +1 Heikki Kovalainen: Dropping some hints about the future, maybe? Leap Year, didn't get proposed by my girlfriend @KataHyde, so my turn next...
  • +1 Vitaly Petrov: Heikki's feeling ill today and Petrov wishes his new teammate better: @H_Kovalainen take care . Get well !
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Posing with the next generation of F1 driver? The cuteness!
  • -2 Mark Webber: Unfortunately, I just can't endorse the concept of being so loud your neighbours bang on the wall. Especially if it's ACDC! "Opps music to loud, person in the next room not impressed.smashing wall. He's on Spanish time, I'm on ACDC time. #longway2thetop"
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: If this F1 thing doesn't work out, Kamui can help out at a car wash?
  • +1 Vitaly Petrov: Petrov's late callup to the Caterham team means he's still learning the names of his team: "I'm trying to learn straight away. In my room, I have a piece of paper with the names of all the people in the team." Bless!
  • +1 Nico Rosberg: Is the Batak wall too small for him or is he cheating? Either way, a point for an amusing photo.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: I do like a tweet I can read and totally hear in the accent: "Good day here in Barca. Smashed out a couple laps to say the least. Now a big feed, then a beloved ice bath. #glamoroussaturdaynight
  • +1 Mark Webber: The number of times I have had this exact thought, but with Webbo, I'd pay to see it happen: "I would love to go on university challenge....."
