Got my cowboy on - Christine's Rankings, Week 40 // Drivers get a bit carried away as they head to the US of A

Published by Christine

This week has been dominated by off-track shenanigans rather than the on-track action we might prefer. That's good for the rankings, however, as it means there are a lot of drivers up for points. In this week's update, we've got lots of hats, drivers trying their hand at lassoing, and showing off with new languages. There are also points from the parade, and a couple of negatives for drivers along the way.

Movements for Week 40

  • +1 Max Chilton: Sharing a picture of his first ever car, in celebration of the trip to the USA.
  • -10 Pastor Maldonado: Just for generally being a totally ungrateful jerk. The sense of entitlement for having won a race is startling.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: Branching out into yet another language for his post-race videos, this time Spanish.
  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: Some pretty rock and roll posing going on by Nico, as the Sauber boys don Circuit of the America belts.
  • +2 Jenson Button: Having a bit of fun as the driver parade cars struggle to make it up the hill.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: Having a bit of fun as the driver parade cars struggle to make it up the hill.
  • -3 Lewis Hamilton: Being pretty tough on his race engineer during the US Grand Prix. "Leave me alone, give me info." Make up your mind!
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Rocking a Stetson during the post-race press conference. Not original, but still fun.
  • +2 Mark Webber: Having a bit of fun with some cardboard cutouts. So many jokes here...
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Trying his hand at a bit of lassoing, when in Texas do as the Texans do, I guess!
  • +2 Jean-Éric Vergne: Picking up Button, after the Brit's parade lap car couldn't get up the hill. Double driver photo!
  • -5 Pastor Maldonado: Not making any additional friends with his claims of sabotage.
