Lewis Hamilton, oh yeah! - Christine's Rankings, Week 42 - The 2013 competition winds up, with an incredibly tight finish

Published by Christine

We've had some pretty close run competitions on the Rankings over the past few years, but I don't think there have been four competitors in with a chance at the title up to the very last week. This is that week, all the points have been scored, and we have a winner!

This time, there are points for putting up with children and their crazy songs, for gathering together your old bosses, for hopping aboard a bus, and doing a demonstration outside Shoe Zone.

Thanks to each and every person who has read, submitted, suggested and got behind the Rankings in 2013, it's been an epic battle from start to finish, but it's Lewis Hamilton who reigns supreme!

Movements for Week 42

  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: Photobomber extraordinaire!
  • +4 Felipe Massa: Massa goes all extra-curricular with some charity football and a little unusually, charity snooker!
  • +2 Giedo van der Garde: DJ Giedo spices up what otherwise appeared to be a tame end-of-season party.
  • +4 Jenson Button: Taking his Secret Santa role very seriously by climbing aboard a festive bus and heading to different charities to hand out Christmas presents. A bit early, but a lovely idea!
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Being a little bit over-excited by the arrival of his new Playstation. That's Fernando's off-season sorted then!
  • +2 Sebastian Vettel: The 2013 champion got a chance to let his hair down at the Autosport Awards, and apparently there was an impression or two in store for the crowd.
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Great little collage of finally getting rid of his Movember madness - not convinced he totally wanted to get rid of it, though, if the last photo is to be believed!
  • +1 Felipe Massa: I'm not 100% sure what he's doing, but equally I don't think I've ever seen an F1 driver with a violin before.
  • +2 Jenson Button: Doing a demo for his home fans in Frome, good to see a sizeable crowd out there too, despite the cold!
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: Not sure how he managed to get through this drive with the noisy kids, but he looks like he's having fun.
  • +3 Fernando Alonso: Managing to get lots of his team principals together in the same room at the same time, including one from McLaren!
