The Silverstone race is a good opportunity for home grown heroes to wow the crowds, and both Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton jumped at the opportunity to do so. They're not the only ones picking up points this week though, as we've also got Esteban Gutiérrez giving his teammate just a bit of aggro, the Williams team making their very own ice creams and even Stoffel Vandoorne making an appearance.

Daniel Ricciardo remains at the top of the rankings table, but his lead is anything but unassailable, so if you've spotted something pointsworthy I need to include for any of the drivers, let me know!

Movements for Week 17

  • +3 Nico Rosberg: Showing some significant bravery in appearing in front of the Silverstone crowd who wasted no time in booing him.
  • +2 Valtteri Bottas: Creating what is an ice cream work of art, but I'm not going to be the one to taste test it!
  • +3 Jenson Button: Great little piece of karting fun with Fernando, Stoffel and Mika Hakkinen!
  • +3 Fernando Alonso: Great little piece of karting fun with Jenson, Stoffel and Mika Hakkinen!
  • +3 Stoffel Vandoorne: Great little piece of karting fun with Fernando, Jenson and Mika Hakkinen!
  • +1 Sergio Pérez: Not the best video, but love Sergio having post-race panic attacks watching it back.
  • +1 Kevin Magnussen: Sharing a sneak peek of neck training, which really does look awkward.
  • +1 Max Verstappen: Points for thinking positive, that his little TV screen is a simulator.
  • +3 Lewis Hamilton: Risking life and limb for a bit of crowd surfing at Silverstone.
  • +1 Nico Hülkenberg: This is one way to cheer on your home player.
  • +2 Esteban Gutiérrez: Esteban taking the initiative in a equal driver status interview question.
