This week was the incredible Brazilian Grand Prix, which overshadowed most of the antics any of the drivers got up off track. However, I've still managed to zero in on a few items, including Fernando Alonso making the most of his free time at Interlagos again, Max Verstappen admitting he is perhaps both brilliant and over-rated at the same time, and Felipe Massa for generally needing a great big hug.

We've got just a few weeks left now before the Christine's Rankings champion of 2016 is crowned, so if you've spotted anything that needs to have some points assigned to it, do let me know in the usual ways!

Movements for Week 35

  • +5 Fernando Alonso: Once again, in Brazil, making the most of his time out of the running - picking up some new camera skills, or maybe not.
  • +5 Lewis Hamilton: Being particularly thoughtful to his poor grid girl in Brazil, and giving her his coat.
  • +2 Max Verstappen: Admitting that he doesn't always deserve driver of the day, but of course he did in Brazil.
  • +1 Nico Rosberg: Sharing some lovely thoughts about and to Felipe Massa after his emotional home race.
  • -1 Max Verstappen: Setting a bad example by not wearing a cycle helmet on his track ride.
  • +4 Felipe Massa: So many points to Massa for coping with this emotional end to his final home race. Beautiful stuff.
  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: Showing his human side in that all that bad luck is starting to get to him!
  • +1 Sergio Pérez: Standing up for what he believes in, even at the expense of a sponsor.
