As something of a hangover from last week's rankings update, there are a couple more drivers attempting to see or play new sports - mostly in the form of baseball. A new driver bursts onto the scenes after his first appearance in free practice at the Korean circuit, and a more experienced driver takes some time out to explain why his race didn't go to plan. All that and more on Christine's Rankings this week.

Movements for Week 37

  • +2 Karun Chandhok: +1 for attempting his hand at any sport, including baseball - as Crofty noted with amusement. +1 for, as Lukeh puts it: I think karun deserves #rankings points for not being Eddie Jordan.
  • +5 Heikki Kovalainen: +3 for having an awesome girlfriend who was lovely to Amy and Jeremy, and +2 for also being nice to the pair.
  • +3 Daniel Ricciardo: +3 for the track walk with Jake Humphrey, shown on the BBC ahead of qualifying. Amusing moments with Liuzzi's car and some embarrassment about his trainers.
  • +2 Lewis Hamilton: +2 for the amusing little aside with his press officer at the start of his post-race interview with Lee.
  • +2 Jean-Éric Vergne: +2 for some cute pronunciation when he was interviewed on the BBC's qualifying coverage.
  • +3 Vitantonio Liuzzi: +3 for explaining why he had a bad race in his ESPN column - every driver should have a column!
  • +1 Jenson Button: +1 for hanging out with Webber at a baseball game.
  • +1 Mark Webber: +1 for hanging out with Button at a baseball game.
