With the full fortnight between racing in Russia and in Spain, the drivers had a moment to themselves which means it's something of a quiet week on the rankings front. The Red Bull stable have been busy, with Daniel Ricciardo showing off his many different forms of fun workouts, and the Toro Rosso boys have a bit of a competition in the kitchen.

We also got to see the personalities behind the pink cars, with F1.com's Grill the Grid featuring both Force India drivers, and it was quite an entertaining quiz. Lots of points up for grabs this weekend as the European leg gets underway, do keep your eyes peeled for anything I need to know about!
