Bottas and Hamilton answer more questions

Three weeks in, and Lewis Hamilton is going great guns at the top - tapping into that secret weapon, the panda. It's not all fun and games for the three time champion though, as there's the small matter of an April fool that we need to discuss. Meanwhile, there are leftover points from Australia, and a few points for those drivers building up to the Chinese Grand Prix - whether by training, or by doing the corporate thing.

Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled through the race weekend and beyond, and let me know if you see anything pointsworthy I need to know about. Contact me in the usual ways!

Movements for Week 3

  • +1 Stoffel Vandoorne: Another sensible head on young shoulders after a difficult first race weekend with McLaren.
  • +2 Felipe Massa: Points for choosing his bff Ricciardo (and also for failing to be humble about all his celebrity friends).
  • +2 Romain Grosjean: Excellent video of his FIVE HOUR bike ride - love the 3D concept.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Living the dream.
  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: I like how much Bottas seems to have enjoyed learning why his team is called what it is called. Bless!
  • +9 Lewis Hamilton: Spending a brilliant half an hour filming pandas in China and being legitimately interested, asking useful questions.
  • -4 Lewis Hamilton: Not even a remotely funny April fool.
  • +1 Marcus Ericsson: Holding a coffee cup in the most unorthodox way possible.
  • +2 Fernando Alonso: Excellent posing for Lewis Hamilton's grid photo.
  • +1 Stoffel Vandoorne: Cake!
