It was a jam packed weekend in Spa, and there was plenty to be picked up on for the rankings this week. We've also got a few things from the past that are being dragged up for points - things that we either missed first time round, or had forgotten about. Let's get right on with the scores for this fabulous week in F1.

Movements for Week 30

  • +17 Heikki Kovalainen: +7 for hanging out with Nightwish and doing a great impression of Lars Ulrich. +10 for an awesome video about bear watching
  • +2 Timo Glock: +2 for being excellent on the BBC post-race forum.
  • +6 Rubens Barrichello: +5 for reaching his 300th Grand Prix and +2 for celebrating with friends but -1 for admitting he's a big crier.
  • +4 Lucas di Grassi: +4 for being excellent on the BBC post-race forum - more excellent than Glock who was very distracted throughout.
  • +1 Mark Webber: +2 for having a proper birthday cake. +2 for the sentiment behind this milk ad but -3 for it being both awful and catchy at the same time
  • -1 Felipe Massa: -1 for leaving
  • -3 Kamui Kobayashi: -3 for having the scariest mascot ever.
  • +1 Michael Schumacher: -2 for saying sorry to Rubens via text - it's like breaking up with someone via text. +3 for flicking Vettel's ear during post-race interviews.
  • -2 Sakon Yamamoto: -2 for falling off the back of the police escort.

That's all for this mammoth rankings update. We've got a new leader, and a new loser, but anything can change in the next seven days. It just takes a great video, or a dodgy shirt, and the order is turned on it's head. Keep me posted if you spot anything we need to know about.
