This week, it's the turn of Daniel Ricciardo to put on a show for the Indian F1 fans, after Lewis Hamilton's successful demonstration last week. The Australian picks up a couple of points on the rankings, as do D'Ambrosio for tweeting a picture of his hotel room, and Trulli for doing his bit for charity. Meanwhile, there are some fashion issues and some great cartooning humour to be had as well.

Movements for Week 35

  • +2 Vitaly Petrov: +2 for being voted the GQ Sports Personality of the Year in Russia.
  • +5 Nico Rosberg: +5 for completing a lap for the Run That Track initiative, earning money for charity. Thanks for the story, J!
  • +3 Jarno Trulli: +3 for doing an excellent job of raising money for the Japan tsunami victims, by auctioning off a signed photo.
  • +1 Jérôme d'Ambrosio: +1 for sharing this picture of a giant hotel bed. I mean, giant!
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: +2 for wowing the crowds in India with a great Red Bull demo.
  • +3 Heikki Kovalainen: +3 for chuckling at Looking Spiffy's excellent cartoon.
  • -1 Jaime Alguersuari: -1 for this shirt. And if not for the shirt, then the glasses. And if not for the glasses, then the clash with the purple!
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: +3 for the Formula One Fantasy interview - the bit where he wants a race in Tokyo because it has nice tarmac. However, -1 for not joining in the fun of the dinner party question.
