After the debut of Christine's Rankings last week, several drivers have been busy making the case for themselves. Public appearances, both at the three launches and testing in Jerez, have meant there is plenty of movement on the rankings today.

Sebastian Vettel is the driver with the most notable ranking this week, not only taking himself out of N/A status, but rising up to match Fernando Alonso on four points. Vettel's new Red Bull themed helmet, with added ring pull and list of ingredients impressed me this week, and granted him a place towards the top.

Vettel wasn't the only new addition to the list, as another three drivers appear, whilst one driver who had already been ranked slips down the table just a little.

Movements for Week 2

  • +4 Sebastian Vettel: For introducing a superb helmet design
  • +2 Bruno Senna: The man can cycle and play video games at the same time (as noted by Lynch).
  • +1 Jaime Alguersuari: Bonus points for being a regular Twitter user but a couple knocked off for the overuse of exclamation marks!!!!
  • -1 Heikki Kovalainen: He really does need a bit of a haircut
  • -2 Michael Schumacher: Because he prefers to eat the Italian pasta at Ferrari rather than from his own team's menu

There are still plenty of drivers that have yet to be scored, but all in good time. The season hasn't even started yet, and I imagine there will be plenty for me to judge them on once the races begin.

In fact, it's not just myself who will be the judge. Ultimately, I compile the table, but I need your help keeping an eye on all the drivers and what they are up to. Christine's Rankings hands out scores on all the important things, including sense of humour, fashion sense, waving in photographs and more. It's all fair game, and I need you to point me in the right direction.
