Last week we discussed the concept of F1 drivers wakeboarding, and this week they're taking it to the next level - the skies! Well, sort of. The Toro Rosso boys found themselves indoor skydiving, and I'd say one of them handled it better than the other. Points galore! Also this week, demonstrations in India, fan-friendly actions particularly during track walks, and a little bit of understanding.

Movements for Week 34

  • +4 Lewis Hamilton: +2 for putting on a great show for the fans in Bangalore. +2 for uploading some pictures from the driver parade.
  • +5 Heikki Kovalainen: +4 for Heikki for this story from @dr_mikki: "I think HK deserves points - met him & he signed my massive "Kovalainen' flag. Told him off for never seeing the flag, he asked where I was sitting; waved & pointed on parade lap & drove car close to grandstand & waved on cool down lap! +1 for liking The Bourne Identity.
  • +3 Sebastian Vettel: +2 for being very gracious with interviews and photos when interrupted on his grid walk. +1 for this great story about seeing the banking at Monza.
  • +3 Jaime Alguersuari: +3 for looking super duper excited during the Toro Rosso indoor skydiving trip.
  • +2 Sébastien Buemi: +2 for taking part in the Toro Rosso indoor skydiving trip, but looking a bit less excited than his teammate.
  • +2 Rubens Barrichello: +2 for being understanding about false stories regarding Lewis Hamilton - two part Twitter update here and here.
  • +2 Pastor Maldonado: +2 for Pastor Maldonado's bit on the BBC about Venezuela, particularly where he slips over in the waterfall.
  • +2 Mark Webber: +2 for his fun Singapore track walk with David Coulthard.
