It's been a fascinating week from a team-watch point of view, with plenty of the organisations in the paddock revealing some interesting things about themselves. From Ferrari banning their drivers from tweeting, to the insanity of a man running around with coconuts to be cracked. It's all here in this week's Team Rankings.

Movements for Week 19

  • +3 Red Bull Racing: +3 for making a special app for those visiting Canada.
  • -2 Sauber F1 Team: -2 for supposedly not letting Esteban know about the Pérez situation, and having Pedro's seat ready anyway.
  • +2 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes: +2 for being prepared to loan out Pedro de la Rosa to a team in need.
  • +1 Marussia F1 Team: -1 for never coming back. +2 for bringing Bradley Cooper into the paddock
  • -4 Force India Formula One Team: -4 for Vijay Mallya chasing his drivers around with lucky coconuts.
  • +1 AT&T Williams: +1 for highlighting Force India's coconut policy.
  • -2 Lotus Renault GP: -2 for losing the best thing about their podcast.
  • -5 Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro: -5 for banning their drivers from tweeting because they like to be in control.
  • +2 HRT Formula 1 Team: +2 for getting both cars to the finish in a completely manic race. And because I feel sorry for them.
