The Chinese Grand Prix is complete, and boy was it a good one. However, if you weren't looking at the racing, then you were probably looking at things I could consider for this week's rankings.

From trying to blend in with the Chinese culture, to finally waking up and racing, we've got points added and taken away throughout the paddock.

Movements for Week 11

  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: +3 for tweeting and taking pictures from within the press conference. -1 for a confusing phrase in a tweet.
  • +4 Nico Rosberg: +3 for a great track walk on the BBC although -1 for the yellow shows he wore to do it. Also +2 because I feel sorry for him for his post-race disappointment.
  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: +2 for giving Lewis a big hug after the race
  • +2 Mark Webber: +2 for this rather amusing photo taken with fans.
  • +2 Vitaly Petrov: +2 for this little anecdote from Tamerlane about a very polite interview.
  • -2 Rubens Barrichello: -2 for being a grump when it comes to Petrov and the possibility of a penalty.
  • +2 Nick Heidfeld: +2 for trying out some Kung Fu in Shanghai.
  • +2 Felipe Massa: +2 for waking up and finding his spirit again. Come on Felipe Baby!
  • +1 Pastor Maldonado: +1 for finally finding the chequered flag!
