Next race: Chinese Grand Prix, Shanghai

The brake lights will still be on, probably - Christine's Rankings, Week 25 // A bumper week of points, despite the paddock going into holiday mode

Published by Christine Blachford

This week, Felipe Massa tried to start a meme by pulling faces on the underground, whilst other drivers were content to simply spot who was hanging from the walls of the tube stations. Meanwhile, Mark Webber made an appearance on Top Gear, and was very happy with how he performed out on track. There's also room for some cooking, some karting, and some time spent in the mountains.

Movements for Week 25

  • +3 Felipe Massa: The face! I think I look like that on the London Underground too. Brilliant.
  • +2 Jean-Éric Vergne: Spending some time karting with the kids at an FFSA event.
  • +1 Max Chilton: Teasing Jenson Button for peering out at him on the tube. This would be even better if Massa hadn't recently been spotted on the underground!
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: Getting all philosophical in his young age!
  • +1 Adrian Sutil: Working hard on his tan, up in the mountains on holiday. Looks nice.
  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: There would have been mega points if they'd been playing rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock!
  • +1 Pastor Maldonado: There would have been mega points if they'd been playing rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock!
  • +2 Adrian Sutil: A video of Adrian training doesn't sound that interesting, but the dude is juggling on a gym ball!
  • +1 Alexander Rossi: Going up the hill and generally being awesome at Goodwood.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: An extra point for the cooking experience, mostly because he got through it despite wielding that giant knife.
  • +4 Mark Webber: Finally proving he is faster than his teammate in equal machinery, by beating Vettel around the Top Gear track.
