Getting his armour on - Christine's Rankings, Week 18 // The drivers scatter and get down to serious playing in the three week break

Published by Christine

This week we have new friendships made, on the golf course, the ice hockey pitch, and via the medium of video. We're also looking at how drivers spend their downtime, including returning home to visit family, taking part in some educational mixology experiments, and participating in some awkward silences.

As ever, don't forget you can get involved with the rankings by sending your suggestions - leave anything you find in the comments here, or via Twitter @f1rankings, or use the handy little form on the dedicated page. If you see something pointsworthy, I need to know about it!

Movements for Week 18

  • +2 Max Chilton: Getting lost with Johnny Herbert in a golf cart at a charity golf day.
  • -1 Max Chilton: This video is just a tiny bit schmoozy, watches and champagne and the like.
  • +1 Sebastian Vettel: I don't really get the point of this video, but I like that he can't keep up the solemn face the entire awkward time.
  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: Getting geared up to play some ice hockey, Lee McKenzie was also involved, we'll expect a video soon!
  • +2 Sergio Pérez: Not often you see an F1 driver get their hands dirty with a shovel and a wheelbarrow.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Getting involved with some Shell science experiments, but mostly a point for the way he pours cocktails - looks like he might make a mean drink.
  • +1 Heikki Kovalainen: Loving this tour of Finland by night.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Getting excited at meeting the band (that I've never heard of).
  • +3 Jenson Button: Partnering up with Tony Stewart in a new batch of Mobil1 ads - there may be an element of proxy points here, loving Tony's work.
