The summer break is long gone and Formula One is back racing, which means the drivers are picking up rankings points all over the place. From their training montages, to cake in the paddock, as well as a bizarre Saturday morning television reprisal featuring Lewis Hamilton, there's plenty to look out for this week. Points are also awarded for impromptu dancing on the circuit and for standing on your head on the water.

As always, let me know if you spot anything the drivers might be doing to pick up points, or lose them. At one point, Ricciardo had what appeared to be an unassailable lead but things can change very quickly in this championship, and you can make all the difference.

Movements for Week 24

  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: In principal, I don't really approve of this, but as an analogy, I can't argue with it.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Got to stick to the end of this video for a bit of teammate dancing.
  • +1 Max Verstappen: Got to stick to the end of this video for a bit of teammate dancing.
  • +3 Kimi Räikkönen: Kimi is so good at karaoke that one bar has give him his own individual microphone that only he can use. Amazing!
  • +3 Jolyon Palmer: Mad props for taking time off in the summer break to only go and climb a mountain!
  • -1 Lance Stroll: Come on, Stroll, playing golf isn't exactly climbing a mountain, is it!
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Why not show off your great balance by doing a head stand on a paddle boat in the middle of the water?
  • +1 Sergey Sirotkin: Cake!
  • +1 Stoffel Vandoorne: Nice little bike ride with David Coulthard and Tom Boonen. Like his "that was a good sprint," at the end, instead of actually being out of breath and a complete mess.
  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: Bit mean to gunge all the Sky F1 presenters, but I like that he went all out and enjoyed it. Also bonus points for "Do we have to use that music?"
