Preparation is everything - Christine's Rankings, Week 32 - In which there are driver demos, competitions, and unique helmets

Published by Christine

This week the drivers were under the floodlights in Singapore, and dealing with the heat and humidity the only way they know how. Points go to the drivers who took each other on with the new F1 2012 Codemasters game and for taking part in the fashion show. Points off for taking helmet design too far, and for either letting the PR take over the Twitter accounts, or letting them dictate a tweet or two.

Movements for Week 32

  • -1 Daniel Ricciardo: Letting the PR people take over the Twitter account!
  • -1 Jean-Éric Vergne: Letting the PR people take over the Twitter account!
  • -2 Sebastian Vettel: LEDs in the helmet is at least a unique idea, but not sure I approve. Constant helmet changing is annoying anyway.
  • +4 Jenson Button: Speaking back to the press about their rumours and speculation: "Funny thing there are no quotes from any of the people involved. It’s amazing how you write so many stories with no quotes from the people who are actually involved saying yes or no."
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: Keeping cool in Singapore by putting his helmet in the freezer!
  • +2 Ma Qing Hua: Taking part in the Amber Fashion Show at Singapore and putting up with Lemar!
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Taking part in a fun BBC piece, taking on Senna and Kovalainen on the F1 2012 game.
  • +2 Bruno Senna: Taking part in a fun BBC piece, taking on Hamilton and Kovalainen on the F1 2012 game.
  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: Taking part in a fun BBC piece, taking on Senna and Hamilton on the F1 2012 game.
  • -2 Lewis Hamilton: A good idea, but a pretty rubbish tarmac signature! Fun ride for the companion though.
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: For keeping the car on track in a Mumbai street demo, despite it being wet.
