We've been applauding the improved frequency of F1.com videos this season, but one of their old staples Grill the Grid has been providing plenty of points on the rankings in 2017. This week it's the turn of the Red Bull boys, and, as you can imagine, they have a lot of fun along the way. We've also got points for fashion this week, as well as (shock, horror) the Ferrari duo getting involved in a fun ad campaign!

For the first time in a while, we've got a rankings leader pulling out something of a gap at the top, but it's still all very much to play for. If you spot anything over the course of the Austrian Grand Prix weekend that I need to know about, do get in touch in the usual ways. You can have a direct impact on the rankings each and every week!

Movements for Week 16

  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: Quite like that his shorts match his body art. Taking fashion to the next level.
  • +2 Kevin Magnussen: Not totally sure what this particularly training exercise is useful for but it looks like a lot of fun.
  • +3 Daniel Ricciardo: Excellent Grill the Grid work with his teammate, lots of laughs and enjoy the catch of Nico Rosberg just at the end.
  • +3 Max Verstappen: Excellent Grill the Grid work with his teammate, lots of laughs and it's quite fun that he doesn't always understand the questions.
  • +1 Sebastian Vettel: Both seem to have engaged with this marketing video well, which is quite out of character.
  • +1 Kimi Räikkönen: Both seem to have engaged with this marketing video well, which is quite out of character.
  • +1 Valtteri Bottas: Not the most insightful read from Bottas ("We’re just… us.") but interesting all the same.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: Revealing his destructive side with a spot of tyre shredding up the Goodwood hill.
  • +1 Jolyon Palmer: Love it when the drivers get into their tennis.
