Williams have made a great recovery from last week's minus points, by allowing the BBC some great access to their design and manufacturing process. In complete contrast, Ferrari blocked out anyone who doesn't speak Italian during the race, which seemed pretty mean to me. Although, also a little bit genius.

Other points are awarded for t-shirts, and for some interesting use of tyres.

Movements for Week 14

  • +3 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes: +3 for letting the BBC in and explaining all about the troubles in getting Hamilton to the grid in China.
  • +5 Team Lotus: +2 for his amusing tweet about Sarah Holt. +1 for yet another great t-shirt. +2 for running in the Race for Life.
  • +2 Lotus Renault GP: +2 for Eric's update on Robert Kubica, particularly about his lack of patience.
  • +3 Marussia F1 Team: +3 for some good laptop ingenuity.
  • -2 Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro: -2 for using Italian during pit to car radio so that we can't understand.
  • +1 Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team: +1 for having a magic paddle. I will give extra points if I am allowed to have one.
  • +5 AT&T Williams: +5 for some great insight into designing a new wing.
