                Lance Stroll was last on the grid so no bonuses this time - no changes in the standings this round but Wouter getting the joint top score with ursus closes the gaps at the top and bottom slightly.

                nmrfox - 6 (86)
                Wouter D - 8 (75)

                          Sorry, let this slip a little bit and should've set it up and bumped earlier.

                          The eighth placed driver is now Hulkenberg after Magnussen leapt past him. They both have 53 points but Magnussen has two 5th places to Hulkenberg's one (I think that's how it goes).

                          nmrfox - 7 (93)
                          Wouter D - d (75)

                          ursus arctos - d (59)

                          So foxy stretches his lead, and I got a free shot at the podium. Better put Suzuka up now then...

                                      Apparently I missed a GP whilst I was wrapped up in my WRC bubble last weekend - only remembered when I heard the result on the radio on Sunday afternoon! Gah.

                                        Daniel Ricciardo put in a superb drive to get up from 15th to 4th and as a result foxy bags two bonus points, completing his century on the way to a probable title here as well. Otherwise, it was fives all round for anyone who spotted the thread...

                                          Hopefully a week is long enough to think about this one! Qualifying at COTA is Saturday 20 October, 1600 local time (2200 BST, 2100 UTC). No Alonso from the top half or Ocon from the lower (which is actually the 10th and 11th drivers in the standings, fact fans).

                                          To earn this race's bonus, you need to get all three of these team-mate qualifying head-to-heads correct. Who qualifies further ahead out of:
                                          - RAI or VET
                                          - HAR or GAS
                                          - OCO or PER

                                          So you just need to give the three names for those.

                                                If I'd done a bit of research before that bonus, I could have found out the qualifying head to heads within each team for the season so far. It turns out, in fact, that the three teams I've chosen all have a 13-4 margin for qualifying from the 17 races so far (with VET, GAS, OCO being ahead of their team-mate by that margin in each case).

                                                But I guess there's enough variation across the three for it to be interesting.

                                                The tightest ones are Renault (HUL 9-8 SAI), Haas (GRO 7-10 MAG) and Williams (SIR 10-7 STR). McLaren is at the other end of the spectrum (ALO 17-0 VAN)

                                                    Four retirements and two DSQs in this one, and while the official website doesn't list the DSQs in the race result I'm placing Magnussen (DSQ) behind Ricciardo (DNF), which is what Wiki is doing.
                                                    Also the qualifying bonus is about their position in qualifying, i.e. before any grid penalties.

                                                    Right-o, the results:

                                                    So VET out-qualified RAI but was then penalised. GAS beat HAR and OCO beat PER.

                                                    VET, GAS, OCO, giving the bonus to TrL.
