The Malaysian Grand Prix offered up plenty more surprises as this 2011 season continues in style. This week we've seen some very grumpy drivers, we've watched some excellent presenting skills, and seen yet more great tributes to those in need.

Christine's Rankings this week praises those that make life a little bit brighter, and penalises those that put a dampener on the weekend. Here's how the points stack up this week.

Movements for Week 10

  • +8 Nick Heidfeld: +3 for suggesting his smaller third place trophy was made to measure. +5 for his über-nice open letter to Kubica.
  • +2 Nico Rosberg: +2 for a great BBC segment on keeping fit for F1.
  • +2 Sébastien Buemi: +2 for another cute set of Malaysia soundbites - including "I lost the engine cover!"
  • +3 Karun Chandhok: +2 for taking over the Beeb's qualifying show and chatting his way round the garage. +1 for respecting Heikki's wish not to talk to camera.
  • +2 Jenson Button: +2 for asking Heidfeld what Renault should be called in the press conference.
  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: +2 for taking video of the school trip they did in Malaysia (although scary children screaming!)
  • +3 Timo Glock: +1 for a rather cool new sticker. +2 for this really good sunset picture.
  • -1 Lewis Hamilton: -1 for being proper grumpy after the race, and that was before he was handed a penalty!
  • +2 Davide Valsecchi: +2 for not doing a Chandhok and getting the Lotus around safely in Free Practice.
