Sending us off into the summer break, the Hungary race delivered plenty, but the drivers were kept busy with the back-to-back nature of events and didn't offer up quite so many pointsworthy activities. Nevertheless, we have points off for some food hygiene problems, and for posing for sponsor ads. There are also points on for keeping fit with some secret skipping, and setting up a new driver/engineer duo.

As it is the summer break, there may be fewer rankings posts during the holidays - unless the drivers manage to stay busy and keep us entertained. As always, suggestions more than welcome and actively encouraged. Be my eyes and ears, friends!

Movements for Week 23

  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Prepping to celebrate his second F1 win in style.
  • +2 Romain Grosjean: A good description of his first reaction to the questionable-looking noses this year, ending with "it is what it is."
  • -2 Nico Rosberg: Slightly concerning BBQ health and safety situation going on here, could they squeeze any more on the grill?
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Treating a quick interview with Sky's Natalie Pinkham as a bit of a therapy session.
  • +1 Jean-Éric Vergne: Posing with his race engineer, it can only be a matter of time before Jev and Xevi become the new Rob and Massa.
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: Having a subtle skip behind the motorhome.
  • -2 Nico Rosberg: Filming his post-race video whilst having his neck messed about with... ooh, I just don't like that at all.
  • -2 Sebastian Vettel: For someone who looks better with the beard, Vettel has a super-smug look going on with this new Braun ad.
