Three Friday drivers appeared in Bahrain this weekend, making them eligible for Rankings points, and two of them immediately got on with it - a look back at an April Fool's joke that wasn't too bad, and a good choice of t-shirt colour. Meanwhile, the regular drivers were still busy, with punny photos, an overall situation, and a ride in a cool buggy.

As always, I appreciate the suggestions from you guys, digging out those pointsworthy things the drivers get up to. Maldonado, Grosjean and Nasr remain on zero points - perhaps they have been doing something that I've missed? Let me know in the usual ways!

Movements for Week 7

  • +2 Sebastian Vettel: Vettel turns photographer and shows the pros what his post-racing career might be.
  • +2 Max Chilton: A couple of points not just for sitting in a cool buggy thing, but mostly for reminding me of this Austin Powers clip.
  • +2 Giedo van der Garde: Some great training shots, and a bonus point for wearing a purple shirt.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Sharing how much he enjoys his time behind the wheel: "That was a pimpin good time."
  • +1 Daniil Kvyat: Russian driver, playing with Russian dolls. As you do.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Not sure what kind of dancing this is, but I hope it doesn't catch on!
  • +2 Nico Hülkenberg: For some reason, I quite like that he has worn out overalls. Racing hard!
  • +2 Jean-Éric Vergne: I'm assuming he didn't make the picture, but points for a cute koala pun anyway.
  • +1 Marcus Ericsson: Boyzone quote! When the going gets tough...
  • +2 Nico Hülkenberg: Watching F1 on his flight... although it looks like it might have sent him to sleep.
  • +2 Robin Frijns: April Fool's are no fun, but this is quite a good one from Robin. The orange Caterham. Is it wrong that it actually looks better?
  • +1 Felipe Massa: Training up his son in handling the media from an early age.
