Welcome to the penultimate week of Christine's Rankings. We've just witnessed the final race of the year, and welcomed in a new champion in the form of Sebastian Vettel. It's been a fascinating year, and now you just have seven more days to find your favourite driver doing points-worthy things before we crown our very own Rankings Champion. It is incredibly tight at the top, and the lead has changed hands several times over the last several weeks. For now it is Chandhok once more, but who will it be next week?
