This past week has been dominated by talk of the F1 demonstrations in Russia - from getting to the destination, to exploring the city, to driving the cars, and then returning home again. Whilst there are some points to be handed out for what went on over there, I've also got a few points for things - old and new - that I also spotted this week.

Here's how my rankings look this week.
