During the weekend, Formula One crowned its very own champion for the 2011 season. There's still plenty of racing to go, though, and that means there's still a way to go for the rankings as well. The season doesn't end here! This week there are drivers trying out new sports, or new sporting partners, some cartooning and some ace photography, plus those pesky puppets make another appearance.

Movements for Week 36

  • +1 Vitaly Petrov: +1 for taking up a new sport in the form of squash! The competitive edge really shows in his quotes.
  • +5 Jenson Button: +4 for being a good sport about his puppet on a BBC F1 segment. +1 for showing us a better celebration than Vettel's single finger.
  • +3 Sergio Pérez: +2 for being very cheeky to his team with an end of race radio prank. +1 for racing even though he was under the weather.
  • +1 Paul di Resta: +1 for racing even though he was under the weather.
  • +1 Mark Webber: +1 for cheering on the Speedway series - just trying to get RG on side, clearly.
  • +1 Heikki Kovalainen: +1 for trying to boost the competition between he, Lewis and Rubens on the golf course.
  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: +1 for a quite amusing comic (drawn by his friend). Kermit the Frog is always acceptable.
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: +1 for a fabulous driver parade picture from Suzuka, self-portrait too!
  • +3 Kamui Kobayashi: +3 for driving an amazing kart buggy thing around and creating awesome pictures like this.
