There was some countryside on the way here - Christine's Rankings, Week 20 // A bumper crop of points dished out as the drivers revel in the British hospitality

Published by Christine

This week, the drivers were gearing up for the British Grand Prix, which meant some rather odd PR stunts (Paul di Resta in a supermarket) and some rather incredible ones (Lewis Hamilton in a Red Arrow). We also had drivers reacting to the sudden news that Mark Webber would be departing the sport at the end of the year, plus some other teammates playing nice for a change. All that and much more in this huge roundup of Rankings.

Movements for Week 20

  • +2 Paul di Resta: Grinning and bearing his way through a PR event at, oddly, a supermarket!
  • +2 Fernando Alonso: Coming up with yet another unique way of engaging the fans in a Q&A session - this time with photos of answers too long for Twitter.
  • +3 Daniel Ricciardo: Paying rather nice tribute to Mark Webber on announcing his F1 departure.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Posing for a mobile pic for Fernando Alonso during the Thursday press conference.
  • +2 Fernando Alonso: Letting Lewis Hamilton post the photo that he took during the Thursday press conference.
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: Helping out in the kitchens, he looks perhaps a little overconfident!
  • +2 Paul di Resta: I assume he's not tucking into ALL that cake, although that might help the weight situation.
  • +1 Jenson Button: A little bit of cheating going on in Sky F1's Big British Quiz. Badgers and otters, indeed.
  • +1 Max Chilton: Quite liked his JK Rowling reference in Sky F1's Big British Quiz.
  • +3 Daniel Ricciardo: Meeting The Gaslight Anthem at Download festival, and giving a resounding "Hellllll yeah" to the possibility of taking Mark Webber's seat at Red Bull.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Sharing this lovely picture of a brief teammate hug.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: Finally we get to see the finished piece with Bottas and ice hockey. I like his little quip about seeing countryside on the way in.
  • +9 Lewis Hamilton: Getting to sit in a Red Arrow during a display. I'm not sure life gets any better than that.
