It's getting to that point in the Formula One season when things start to get serious. There are two championships up for grabs, and it's eyes down, concentrate to see who is going to win it. Here at Sidepodcast though, it's a different story, as we search for the lighter side of the sport. This week, there are points for drivers going head to head with their boss, taking on the team in a different game, and hitting the streets in a kart and a costume.

Defending champion Ricciardo has a commanding hold on the lead at the moment, but Lewis Hamilton is making another charge and Fernando Alonso is coming under pressure once more. So exciting!

Movements for Week 29

  • +1 Pascal Wehrlein: Spot of water polo for the Sauber team, with some unorthodox moves from Pascal.
  • +1 Pascal Wehrlein: Giving Vettel a lift after the race in Malaysia, and, it seems, prepping for a follow up career as a taxi driver!

  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: Helping promote voting for Billy for the Laureus Awards.

  • +2 Felipe Massa: Taking Mario Kart to the streets! (Looks dangerous!)
  • +2 Lance Stroll: Taking Mario Kart to the streets! (Looks dangerous!)
