I got him big time - Christine's Rankings, Week 37 - Vettel doubles his score with his post-championship antics

Published by Christine

This week, on track, a champion was decided. Off track, Christine's Rankings is still rating and scoring the drivers for a few more weeks yet. Sebastian Vettel sealed the deal in India, and picks up several rankings points for his post-race celebrations. The championship is way down the order though, as at the top, Fernando Alonso moves into second place (a familiar position!) and prepares to chase Lewis Hamilton for the lead.

Movements for Week 37

  • +10 Fernando Alonso: I've never seen a driver picking up two other racing drivers. I may never see it again. Brilliant!
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: It could be a bad omen to spot an F1 car on the back of a lorry before you even get to the track, but Lewis takes it in his stride.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: Nico appears to be having a whale of a time on a rickshaw.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: There would be more points if he painted it himself, but I liked him sharing this speed-painting video of himself.
  • +2 Mark Webber: Congrats to Red Bull, but not to Sebastian. Predictable, but brilliant.
  • +3 Nico Rosberg: Celebrating dousing the new world champion right in the face with champagne. "I got him big time!"
  • +3 Sebastian Vettel: Trying, failing, but persevering to throw his gloves over the fence to the fans. And the donuts, of course.
  • +2 Sergio Pérez: Letting a different woman shave each side of his face. Brave or stupid?
  • +3 Sebastian Vettel: Helping the team pack up post-race and post-championship success!
