I do love a bit of dress up! - Christine's Rankings, Week 19 - In which there are top hats, table football and trackside activities

Published by Christine

The race weekend in Valencia was a lot more exciting than anyone had expected, and along with it came plenty of driver rankings activities. Ahead of the Grand Prix, Jenson Button tried out his smart suit and top hat, recommending more of the same to the sport we all enjoy. On the flip side, the Sauber boys found some enormous glasses and refused to take them off for an entire preview video. Elsewhere, football, sailing and some serious apologising!

Movements for Week 19

  • -3 Fernando Alonso: This concise summary of his exercise since Canada can only be considered showing off and/or making us all feel like weaklings! "As always, here the training program from last race in Canada; -481Km bike -36 Km run -11h swim -2h gym -5h (tennis, soccer, etc...)"
  • +2 Jenson Button: Button wants to bring a bit of style to F1: Fun day at Ascot today with @jessybondgirl. I do love a bit of dress up! Think top hats are the way forward in F1 instead of baseball caps!!
  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: Sharing what is an exceptional view from the motorhome in sunny Spain!
  • +2 Paul di Resta: Making the most of the sunshine and heading out on the water!
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: The preview in the sunglasses: silly but I quite like them not taking themselves too seriously.
  • +2 Sergio Pérez: The preview in the sunglasses: silly but I quite like them not taking themselves too seriously.
  • +1 Jean-Éric Vergne: Doing his bit for the fans at the gate.
  • +1 Jean-Éric Vergne: For a nice apology to Heikki, taking the full responsibility that he sort of failed to immediately after the incident: "All my apologies to @H_Kovalainen, rookie, not rookie, just my mistake and will learn from it..."
  • +3 Heikki Kovalainen: Taking the Angry Birds thing to a whole new motorsport related level. I've not quite got the attraction of Angry Birds, myself, but I like Silverstone in the background!
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Celebrating with the crowds when his Ferrari stopped out on track post-victory.
  • +2 Jenson Button: Apologising in multiple interviews for being a grump on Saturday, feeling slightly better on Sunday.
  • +2 Sebastian Vettel: A fun little drive around the New Jersey street circuit with Lee McKenzie.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Playing a different kind of football with teammate Jean-Éric Vergne.
