It learns me to get better - Christine's Rankings, Week 36 // The rankings takes a French turn with a get-together at Japan

Published by Christine

There's plenty of French stuff in this week's rankings, as Charles Pic shared some details about the four French drivers getting together for some TV pieces. Also, Romain Grosjean speaks his native language. Points! Elsewhere, there are some track demos at Williams, plus a nice interview between teammates at Mercedes. Don't forget to yell if you see pointsworthy activities, share in the comments below or on Twitter.

Movements for Week 36

  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: A really nice, if slightly awkward at times, interview with teammate and BFF Nico Rosberg.

  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: Can't decide if it should be points on or off for driving a Twizy around Brands Hatch. We'll go with one point, just for styling it out.
  • +2 Pastor Maldonado: Providing chauffeur duties to open water swimmer Keri-Anne Payne - that's better than driving a Twizy.
  • +3 Charles Pic: Really good update on what he and the other French drivers have been up to over the past few weeks. Trying and failing to draw Suzuka, mostly!
  • +2 Romain Grosjean: Almost taking down DC with a judo move during the track walk ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix.
  • +2 Jean-Éric Vergne: Accidentally drawing on Bianchi's paper, and Grosjean's face, when the French drivers attempted to draw Suzuka blindfolded.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: For getting his own back on his teammate, albeit in a safer environment.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: I know the guy is just speaking French but a bonus point for squeezing in "Encore une fois".
