Certain power unit news has been dominating the headlines, and certain first lap chaos has been dominating our thoughts, but there was more to the Singapore weekend than all that. Drivers were up to all sorts of mischief, and I caught as much of it as I could and handed out points where possible. Carlos Sainz picked up a good haul this weekend, but leader Daniel Ricciardo knows what he's doing!

This week there's a couple of ice baths to dip into, some team radio to ponder, and a couple of different pieces of nostalgia to think about. As always, let me know if you spot anything pointsworthy and we'll see about getting some points on the board.

Movements for Week 27

  • +1 Sebastian Vettel: No love lost between Vettel and Ricciardo, as the Ferrari driver gets a bit nostalgic.
  • +2 Carlos Sainz Jr: Sainz got to sit in the best Renault ever, and shared the picture upon his return to that seat.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: I feel like Alonso enjoys a surfing panda just as much, maybe more, than I do!
  • +1 Daniel Ricciardo: Good looking and fast he may be, perhaps not so modest though.
  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: The Red Bull boys try a taste test of some unusual fruit, with predictably hilarious results. For Daniel, the constant laughing at his teammate is fabulous.
  • +2 Max Verstappen: The Red Bull boys try a taste test of some unusual fruit, with predictably hilarious results. For Max, trying a hammer as a last resort is brilliant.
  • +2 Felipe Massa: Lovely open interview with Massa about his prospects for the future.
  • +1 Daniil Kvyat: Love the Toro Rosso chaps being interviewed by a robot.
  • +1 Carlos Sainz Jr: Love the Toro Rosso chaps being interviewed by a robot.
  • +1 Carlos Sainz Jr: Reacting quite well to being doused in champagne whilst in an ice bath. That must have been an odd mix of sensations.
  • +1 Carlos Sainz Jr: Love the reaction to finishing fourth. Vamos, anyone?
  • +1 Marcus Ericsson: Not sure we need to have interviews in ice baths but points for endurance.
  • +1 Esteban Ocon: Cake!
