This week drivers have been gearing up to start the last frantic part of the season - the flyaways start once again, and there's no looking back until Abu Dhabi. With that in mind, some have ramped up the training, others have taken the opportunity to relax, and many have revealed more about themselves than they otherwise would have liked. With fashion (especially hats) in focus, there's also a spot of interviewing, playing with small cars, and taking shadowy photos.

As always, let me know if you spot anything drivers do that needs points - either positive or negative. We're heading rapidly towards the conclusion of this epic fight for the 2014 Christine's Rankings championships, there's a dominant leader, but there's still everything to play for!

Movements for Week 30

  • +2 Daniel Ricciardo: Having quite a lot of fun in an alternative style of race with Daniil Kvyat.
  • +2 Daniil Kvyat: Having quite a lot of fun in an alternative style of race with Daniel Ricciardo.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: It's sort of like a whole new level of shadow puppetry.
  • +1 Max Chilton: Looking the part with his brother at the Goodwood Revival.
  • +1 Esteban Gutiérrez: They all got hats, I know, but Esteban is still so proud of his many days later.
  • +1 Fernando Alonso: He's found just a bit of space to play around with his remote control car.
  • +4 Marcus Ericsson: A great little street demo in Sweden, with a bonus selfie to boot!
  • -1 Daniel Ricciardo: Not totally convinced about the quip regarding James Hunt as the ideal teammate. Would have been more points off but how can you dock that smiling face?
