It's been a busy week in Formula 1, with the demise of US F1 and the rise of HRT F1. Terrible name, interesting driver pairing. Bruno Senna and Karun Chandhok were both present for the launch and some interesting tweeting occurred.

Elsewhere, there is movement upwards for Webber and Glock, whilst the McLaren boys finally get some points on the board - not all good though. I know plenty of people have been keen to see Hamilton and Button drop the 'N/A' status, and this is their week.

Movements for Week 5

  • +3 Timo Glock: +2 for joining Twitter and +1 for posing on a bike.
  • +2 Mark Webber: +2 for commentating a fabulous lap of Bahrain.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: +2 for ditching his manager.
  • +1 Karun Chandhok: +1 for taking pictures of his teammate during the HRT launch.
  • -1 Bruno Senna: -1 for wearing a bright blue hat with that outfit!
  • -1 Jenson Button: -1 for that Walkers crisps advert. Button's Cabs? Really?

This time next week we will have seen the first race of the season, so expect plenty of driver movements. If you spot anything I should include on the list then please let me know in the usual ways! I'm always open to suggestions.
