Sunglasses from America - Christine's Rankings, Week 40 - In which there are catchphrases, awkward photos, and cool fashion

Published by Christine

By all accounts, the drivers had a whale of a time at the Circuit of the Americas, and the enthusiasm from the paddock, along with the overwhelming atmosphere in the grandstands really came across and made it an even better weekend. This week, we have points for slipping phrases into radio interviews, driver parade coverage and excellent shoes.

Movements for Week 40

  • -3 Sebastian Vettel: Being totally rubbish about the swearing thing. "I think if you are sensitive then you should watch some kids' programme. You have the remote control in your hand." BFF Bernie would love that, I'm sure.
  • +1 Timo Glock: Rocking the "sunglasses from America" in his pre-practice video.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: Swapping helmets with Romain Grosjean as a souvenir for the year.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Swapping helmets with Fernando Alonso as a souvenir for the year.
  • +2 Felipe Massa: Helping the team to make special preparations for their assault on the final two races.
  • +1 Kamui Kobayashi: Doing some sterling work sharing photos on the driver's parade. Great cars.
  • +1 Timo Glock: Also providing corner by corner coverage of the driver's parade, full grandstands!
  • -1 Daniel Ricciardo: Not sure about this goatee he's rocking, even if it is a go-faster goatee.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Almost speaking out about the poor state of trophies at the moment.
  • +2 Nico Hülkenberg: Hulk... wearing Hulk shoes!
  • +1 Lewis Hamilton: Still levitating, two weeks later.
  • +2 Bruno Senna: Getting in the spirit and slipping "shake and bake" into a radio interview, when challenged to do so.
