From pink helmets to sweets galore, there are plenty of bits and pieces on the rankings this week. McLaren have given their drivers the first in a series of four non-F1 related challenges with a funny video. Elsewhere on the rankings, there's talk of doing the tourist thing, and plenty of fascinating track walks to behold.

Movements for Week 39

  • +1 Jaime Alguersuari: +1 for wearing a pink helmet like Franck, as displayed during his crash in Free Practice 1.
  • +2 Fernando Alonso: +2 for watching himself on the big screen after ending his FP1 session early.
  • +1 Mark Webber: +1 for sharing pictures of sugary snacks, as pointed out by Kate. If I'm ever in Oz, I will take that challenge, Mark.
  • +10 Lewis Hamilton: +4 for the air hockey video. This is WAR! +2 for sporting a great Bob Marley helmet. +4 for nabbing JB's rickshaw during the BBC track walk feature.
  • +6 Jenson Button: +4 for the air hockey video. He's his own worst enemy! +2 for some good rickshaw driving during the BBC track walk feature.
  • +2 Karun Chandhok: +2 for his great tour of the circuit for the Beeb build up.
  • +2 Sergio Pérez: +2 for this rather odd, but very well made video - that may be a tourism advert?
  • +2 Sebastian Vettel: +2 for going out of his way on a tourist trip in India before the race.
  • +3 Nico Hülkenberg: +3 for sending a box of sweets to the Force India offices. Mmmm, sweets.
  • +1 Pedro de la Rosa: +1 for making an appearance on the pit wall during Free Practice!
