It's been quiet on the rankings front this past week, the technological difficulties in China mean social networks have been used slightly less than normal. There was still time for some video insight, including a sweet little message from Esteban Gutiérrez and some odd but fun singing from Nico Rosberg. There was also a lot of cake in China, but I opted to hand out points for the champagne instead.

As always, let me know if you spot any pointsworthy actions from our drivers - positive or negative - via the usual methods. I'll consider pretty much anything, fashion, singing, selfies, cake, sports, all sorts. Keep your eyes peeled!

Movements for Week 9

  • +1 Max Chilton: Dealing with the overcast conditions in China by brightening up his world with a blue visor.
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: Bless him, he didn't exactly tailor his wardrobe to the conditions: Good morning Shang-hai.I really want to see some sunny weather cause I just bring short pants!
  • +2 Kimi Räikkönen: It may be the grumpiest selfie in the world, but even Kimi isn't above a mobile trend.
  • +2 Fernando Alonso: This, I find brilliant. Names can be tricky but Alonso handles Hoonkelber very well.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Sneaking in a glass of champagne (one only!) to celebrate his birthday.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: The camera kept rolling after Nico's video diaries for some bonus singing.
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: There's nothing massively special about this Happy Easter message but bless him all the same.
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: Finding himself a unique seat for the team photos.
