You have a new button there - Christine's Rankings, Week 28 // In which there are driver pranks, thoughts on poetry and much more

Published by Christine

I like the summer break probably more than the average F1 fan, but even to me this year's mid-season halt has seemed interminable. There are just enough rankings points to go round this week, though, before the drivers return to action in Spa - hopefully falling over themselves to do battle on the rankings front. Meanwhile, this time we have drivers in different cars, which video games are played the most, and Sauber's excellent prank.

Movements for Week 28

  • +3 Kamui Kobayashi: Fantastic response to those silly magazine questions: "I tell you, I could kill you very easily." As spotted by @lukehmuse.
  • +1 Jenson Button: Getting multilingual with an Indian shoot. There'd probably be more points if I could hear it, too.
  • +3 Kamui Kobayashi: Taking part in the excellent tit-for-tat Sauber video, and particularly being Spy Cam Specialist.
  • +3 Sergio Pérez: Taking part in the excellent tit-for-tat Sauber video, and particularly the face he pulls at the explanation of the button.
  • +3 Jenson Button: JB appeared on the Jonathan Ross show and shared plenty about his recent triathlon woes, and was impressive on the Batak wall.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Getting cultural and philosophical, and engaging in some poetry talk: "Nothing to do with who's coming today. I just wanted to ask you. I don't know every poet but enjoy poetry. Who do you like?"
  • +4 Giedo van der Garde: Asking his girlfriend to marry him in proper racing driver fashion: mid-demo run, overalls and everything!
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Referring to the Lotus innovation on the rear wing as "the interesting device!"
  • +1 Mark Webber: Not wasting the summer break and getting some mid-season practice in, albeit in slightly different machinery.
