The Singapore GP offered up plenty of interesting racing action, but there were only a few bits and pieces worthy of the rankings. However, a few of the drivers kept themselves busy before the race itself, and that often throws up some of the best moments. Here are the things worthy of points added, or taken away, from the past week.

Movements for Week 34

  • +6 Heikki Kovalainen: +1 for taking photos whilst in the press conference. +5 for being a fireman.
  • +4 Karun Chandhok: +1 for being Jake's chauffeur. +2 for a great BBC segment on the Indian track. +1 for taking part in the Amber Lounge fashion show.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: +2 for taking his helmet off after the crash - unusually open behaviour.
  • +1 Mark Webber: +1 for an unpublicised visit to Great Ormond Street.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: +2 for telling Martin Brundle off for being ungentlemanly during the gridwalk.
  • +1 Sebastian Vettel: +1 for an unpublicised visit to Great Ormond Street.
  • -1 Kamui Kobayashi: -1 for queuing for a taxi instead of walking.
  • +2 Nick Heidfeld: +2 for clearing the air with Pedro after taking his seat before the season end.
  • -2 Christian Klien: -2 just because.

That sums it up for now - two new drivers added to the rankings this week. I can't believe there will be any more before the season ends, but I've been wrong before. We've got a rest week now, before the action gets underway again in Japan. Let me know if you spot anything over the next seven days, and I'll meet you back here!
