Leading up to the final race of the year and the final rankings round up of the 2014 season, we've got the penultimate group of points to hand out. This time, drivers are given points for paying tribute to their colleagues, spending some time with the family, sitting down for some nostalgic interview questions, and doing the tourist thing.

As always, your suggestions are crucial to deciding who gets the top honours, and this final coming week is double points week so it's more important than ever! Keep the ideas pouring in and this time next week we'll know who is the winner!

Movements for Week 39

  • +1 Felipe Massa: Getting his footie gear on for a charity match.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Being quite the tourist and eyeing up the size of the Burj Khalifa.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: Making something of a documentary with home videos from fans.
  • +1 Jenson Button: Paying tribute to the departing Gary Paffett with some best wishes and what could be an insult.
  • -1 Fernando Alonso: Finding new entertainment with a beard comb. Little things I guess!
  • +2 Kamui Kobayashi: Dragged back to Caterham, Kamui's keeping things light, as Toru explains: "Kamui just made a joke with his team situation, wondering if there will be catering service on the race weekend.. then planning to take some Japanese food with him."
  • +2 Jenson Button: I mean, his hero was Bananaman. Enough said.
  • +1 Felipe Massa: This seems like a very unfair fight but props for keeping his kid interested in sports.
