It's been a pretty quiet week in the world of Christine's Rankings. Most of the drivers have been keeping to themselves, busy with pre-season testing. There haven't been any launches which means no major public appearances, but that doesn't mean we haven't been eagle-eyed.

Heikki Kovalainen has been brought to my attention the most. Firstly, he joined Twitter which was good news, particularly as he was tweeting from the garage in Jerez when he wasn't even driving that day. However, then he went and starred in a video for MTV3 and some of these pictures are quite scary. A horse!

Heikki isn't the only one to be moving around on the list though. Di Grassi and Glock both make a move, whilst Webber and Hülkenberg join the rankings.

Movements for Week 3

  • +2 Lucas di Grassi: for appearing in that Virgin video in a deckchair.
  • +2 Timo Glock: for appearing in that Virgin video in a deckchair.
  • +2 Nico Hülkenberg: for completing the most laps in Jerez this week - I like a new guy who'll work hard.
  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: +3 for being on Twitter and -1 for posing with a horse.
  • -1 Mark Webber: -1 for swearing unnecessarily when talking about his future in the sport.

There's just one more week of testing left for our drivers to get onto my radar before the season begins and the real points start flying around. Don't forget you can let me know if you spot anything I should be aware of for next week's rankings, be it video, interview or photographs.
