There was a race this weekend in Singapore, but as is always the case in the Christine's Rankings championship, we are more interested in what happened off the race track than on it. This time out, we've got points for watching a magic show, also for trying a couple of new dishes in Singapore, and celebrating your own wedding.

There's also some points for meeting and greeting fans on the track walk, and for waving at the media as you pass them by in your car. As always, let me know if you spot anything I should be handing out points for, particularly as we get into the crucial end of this competition!

Movements for Week 27

  • +2 Carlos Sainz Jr: Indulging in a bit of magic with Dynamo, and looking suitably impressed.
  • +6 Lewis Hamilton: Showing off some serious bravery in scaring a tiger even if it's only a baby one.
  • +1 Nico Rosberg: One of a couple of drivers indulging in Singapore cuisine.
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: One of a couple of drivers indulging in Singapore cuisine.
  • -1 Marcus Ericsson: This is not cake, I wouldn't stand for it.
  • +3 Sebastian Vettel: Lovely interaction with a young fan and his toy.
  • +3 Jenson Button: Love Button waving madly at Ted, despite his McLaren being less than reliable at that moment.
  • +1 Felipe Massa: This seems a fun game to start up on Twitter. Boy they do look alike.
  • +1 Romain Grosjean: Never seen this show but I like a driver getting invested in a TV programme.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: Nice tribute to his (cheeky) wife after their recent wedding.
  • +1 Nico Rosberg: Not minding a slight delve into the archives after referencing his jump on the podium. Rather than jumping Air Rosberg, we get to see the original!
