Last time on the rankings, it was Red Bull pulling out all the stops to bring F1 to the fans, and this time round it is McLaren. Their demo in Manchester looks to have been very well received. Meanwhile, Tony Fernandes continues to be astonishingly optimistic, but also shows his sense of humour at the same time. There are plus and minus points to be handed out this week, so let's get right to it.

Movements for Week 30

  • +2 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes: +2 for the Manchester demo, and letting Jenson Button take his trophy to the streets.
  • +4 Marussia F1 Team: +3 for running sponsorship to save the gorillas! +1 for seeking out cake at Michael Schumacher's anniversary celebrations.
  • +3 Team Lotus: +1 for Tony's completely endless enthusiasm - are they really going to be able to fight for the championship next year? +2 for taking the Team Loftus thing to the sticker level.
  • -2 Scuderia Ferrari: -2 for being grumpy with their awful qualifying even though it was alright really.
