The week between races can often be a bit slow for driver activity, but that's not the case this time out. We've got reactions from the Le Mans event, a new drink related extra-curricular activity and looking for pace even in the most mundane of places.

Canada's been and gone and it's over to Baku the drivers are heading, so we'll be watching closely to see what they get up to. It's a street circuit, plenty to keep them occupied on track, but off track they'll be gaining points as well - do let me know if you spot anything worth handing points out for, or deducting points for, and we'll see how that affects the standings next week!

Movements for Week 14

  • +2 Jenson Button: We all think he's joking when he asks for a lifelong ban, but is he really?
  • +2 Esteban Ocon: Amazingly brave to participate in some pre-race zip-lining!
  • +3 Stoffel Vandoorne: Nice video of a rowing challenge, ending with a "Where's Tom?" and a fun fight with the other Tom.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: Always looking for more pace, even in the garden.
  • +1 Marcus Ericsson: Good performance for second place in Grill the Grid, like that the boys show the cards to the camera.
  • +1 Pascal Wehrlein: Good performance for second place in Grill the Grid, bit cheeky to his teammate but super nerdy to make up for it.
  • +1 Kimi Räikkönen: Kimi accidentally giving away the secret that he is a time traveller with his adorable yesterday/tomorrow confusion.
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Expanding his interests with a spot of beer brewing.
  • +1 Kevin Magnussen: Sending love to his father after a tough Le Mans result.
