This week, the drivers all participated in the Spanish Grand Prix, but a lot of the points have come from before the main event. From saving nature in hotel rooms, to answering questions about Spanish food, and of course, testing out some scary looking rollercoasters, there are points galore.

Here's how the rankings look this week.

Movements for Week 16

  • +4 Mark Webber: +2 for being his usual upfront self regarding the rule changes. +2 for trying out a new job.
  • +2 Sebastian Vettel: +2 for disregarding questions about his KERS not working, saying it was not fair to suggest Webber's pole was because of that.
  • +6 Jenson Button: +3 for a fabulous appearance on Spanish TV. +3 for making fun of Vettel's pointy finger in a BBC segment.
  • +4 Paul di Resta: +4 for doing some great explanations on the grid about his steering wheel.
  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: +3 for a fabulous appearance on Spanish TV.
  • +6 Jérôme d'Ambrosio: +6 for being brave and cute simultaneously, whilst being forced to ride a rollercoaster.
