The Chinese race gave our drivers a chance to take some time in the spotlight, particularly considering how much drama there was before, during and after the event itself! This week feels more like Red Bull and their sister team Toro Rosso have dominated things, with Daniel Ricciardo being his particularly awesome self, and all four of them getting up to things that no racing driver should experiment with (ie. being in a band).

There's also room for a spot of cooking and some birthday cake, talking and doing a jigsaw at the same time, as well as the best angst-filled radio response we've heard in a long while.
