This week, I've been very impressed with Mark Webber, particularly after his debut onto the rankings last time around - with a minus score. The Australian not only updated his website, making full use of YouTube, but he also jumped headfirst into the Twitter-universe. Already he has used the word "arvo" and therefore I am awarding him plenty of plus points.

I also took several suggestions this week, as I hadn't managed to keep an eye on what everyone was up to. Hopefully I've credited everyone involved and there are links underneath the table to all the required supporting evidence.

Movements for Week 4

  • +2 Lucas di Grassi: +2 for building his own super-duper kart to keep fit.
  • +3 Heikki Kovalainen: +1 for improving his hairstyle and +2 for an amusing Twitter conversation.
  • +5 Mark Webber: +3 for being on Twitter and +2 for a fabulous new website.
  • +2 Robert Kubica: +2 for the Autosport headline "Kubica revelling in Renault atmosphere" as I find it hard to imagine the Pole revelling in anything but I like the idea of it.
  • +1 Michael Schumacher: +1 for being quite amusing and having to rapidly change his story about his team's chance of winning.
