I'm still gonna sleep well - Christine's Rankings, Week 19 // Quiet week ahead of the Hungarian race

After so many goings on over the course of the Silverstone weekend, it's understandable that it's been quiet since then. Drivers have been hibernating a little, waiting for the final race in Hungary before the summer break kicks in but there are still a few activities that haven't escaped my notice.

Firstly, another Grill the Grid from the official F1.com website - I'm loving these this year, teammates tasked with answering questions and not falling out when each other gets it wrong. The Mercedes pair take on the task this week and don't do too badly. There's also points for a really good build up video to the US race, still a way off but worth starting to think about.

Movements for Week 19

  • +1 Felipe Massa: Giving "I'm bringing sexy back" a go, if not quite convincingly.
  • +1 Lance Stroll: Slightly better version of "I'm bringing sexy back" but still a little bit creepy.
  • +1 Esteban Ocon: Definitely needs to work on his cowboy yeehaw's!
  • +1 Daniil Kvyat: Good job winning the latest Toro Rosso cooking challenge, particularly as it's all in a foreign language to him!
  • +1 Carlos Sainz Jr: Quite enjoy the concentration/effort faces Carlos makes during this teammate cooking challenge.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Always ready to try something new whilst training on his bike.
  • +2 Romain Grosjean: Writing a cookery book with his wife. Can't wait to see what recipes make it in there.
  • -1 Lewis Hamilton: It's good that he experiments but I'm really not sure this look is the way to go.
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: Loving the latest Grill the Grid video, in which Lewis displays the correct amount of disbelief at Maldonado's victory.
  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: Calling shenanigans on Toro Rosso's quite legendary Grill the Grid performance, always competitive these people.
