This week the driver PR commitments went into overdrive as they prepared for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Mr C and I also tracked some of the drivers as they left for the circuit on Friday morning, and we learnt a couple of things about their morning moods as we went.

Movements for Week 23

  • +3 Karun Chandhok: +5 for cooking food for his team but -2 for fishing for points.
  • +1 Timo Glock: +1 for remembering the yellow glasses from last year.
  • +3 Jenson Button: +3 for yet more awesome videos - pub quizzes and VW campervans.
  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: +3 for yet more awesome videos - pub quizzes and VW campervans.
  • +5 Rubens Barrichello: +7 for being a great interviewee on Top Gear but -2 for beating the Stig's laptime.
  • +2 Jarno Trulli: +2 for signing autographs for the fans and making up for his grumpiness a little bit.
  • -1 Vitaly Petrov: -1 for not stopping to autograph anything on Friday morning.
  • +1 Sakon Yamamoto: -2 for replacing Bruno Senna but +3 for handling the situation quite well.
  • -1 Michael Schumacher: -1 for undertaking a van on the BBC video clip as he drove Jake Humphrey to Silverstone.

That's all for this week. We had a new entrant in the form of Sakon Yamamoto, but I think I speak for everyone when I say we're hoping for Senna to return again next week. Keep your eyes peeled for anything pointsworthy and let me know!
