This week, Red Bull pulled out all the stops for another event - this time taking their cars, drivers, planes and karts all the way to Cardiff Bay. Plenty of points for the drivers taking part and indulging the fans. Talking of indulgence, Jenson Button has opened up a restaurant, with lots of fancy things on the menu - although there's not enough talk of desserts for my liking.

Movements for Week 31

  • +2 Heikki Kovalainen: +2 for his amusing tweet, explaining the photographs of him looking confused by lots of pretty ladies.
  • +5 Daniel Ricciardo: +3 for running around Cardiff Bay, throwing caps into the audience, and +2 for showing off excellently with NASCAR donuts.
  • +3 Mark Webber: +3 for his part in the Cardiff Bay fun and games, particularly for responding to the fans.
  • +2 Timo Glock: +2 for some good answers to the F1.com fantasy interview, including being happy anywhere he can have a steak.
  • +2 Jarno Trulli: +2 for picking Alonso as his former-champ dream teammate in the F1.com fantasy quiz, because they got on so well. Bless!
  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: +3 for doing an excellent job on the Jonathan Ross show, including tweeting beforehand.
  • +4 Jenson Button: +3 for taking time out of his restaurant opening duties to sign autographs for the fans. +1 for doing his bit to get DC on Twitter.
