Over the past seven days, the drivers have wrapped up their pre-season testing programmes and now prepare for the racing to begin in Australia.

There's just a brief moment for some down time, which is why we see Lewis reconnecting with his pets, the Toro Rosso boys playing a spot of table tennis, and Romain Grosjean answering questions about a former teammate.

As always, please send any rankings suggestions over so I can cast a beady eye over them and make a points assessment. You can connect with me on the dedicated Rankings page, or via Twitter.

Movements for Week 2

  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: Meeting the legend that is Roger Federer, and having a cool, calm conversation.
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Potentially the worst pre-season testing ever, and this guy is still smiling.
  • +1 Kimi Räikkönen: Congratulating (and surprising!) Romain on the birth of his son.
  • +1 Daniil Kvyat: A spot of table football to pass the time, and get to know new teammate JEV!
  • +1 Jean-Éric Vergne: A spot of table football to pass the time, and get to know new teammate Kvyat!
  • +3 Max Chilton: Making the test crew a very welcome cup of tea as he's not in the car. Milk, no sugar, please!
  • +1 Sebastian Vettel: Lending a hand to push his errant car during a tough third day of testing in Bahrain.
  • +1 Sergio Pérez: Celebrating the best director Oscar success of Mexican Alfonso Cuarón.
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: Celebrating the best director Oscar success of Mexican Alfonso Cuarón.
  • +4 Jean-Éric Vergne: A couple of points for trying to sneak a massive cog through security and then a couple more for the brilliant expression.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Getting the points for the cute but ridiculous dogs out the way early. Chasing a helmet and perhaps training to watch tennis?
