The All-Motorsport Power Rankings: No. 56
The return of Mother Nature to Power Rankings.
Established readers (I like to believe there are at least three of you) will know that while just about anything can find it's way into the rankings I tend to draw the line at Mythical Beings (at least until Sasquatch strolls into the garage, which would of course mean he was no longer mythical, damned semantics).
However, that doesn't stop Mother Nature from trying as this week she gave us the greatest Monday in Motorsports* as the eastern U.S. seemingly got a good washing.
Elsewhere in the wide wet world of sports, F1 decided to be interesting again, not only helped by some of the wet stuff but also Lewis Hamilton's run in with the law, 'hooning' it around Melbourne in a Mercedes, probably going faster than Michael Schumacher in the process.

*so far this year
15. Kimi Raikkonen (WRC)
Ooooo WRC time this weekend!
Get your bets for the stage where Kimi crashes out now, my guess is stage seven.
14. David Coulthard (Rent-a-Quote)
13. Timo Glock (F1)
Virgin making excuses for not going all the way.
12. Dan Wheldon (Indycar)
11. Michael Schumacher (F1)
The trouble with Spaniards....
Michael to Fernando – ‘don’t you know who I am’
10. Marco Andretti (Indycar)
Preserve this video like a historical document.
And yes, this is Marco leading on a road course.
9. Paul Menard (NASCAR)
After all the surges up the points table it’s good to know that the real Paul Menard is still in the car, as Elliott Sadler and Kyle Busch can attest.
8. Marco Werner (Le Mans)
OK, so let me get this straight.
It’s David Brabham, Marino Franchitti, and Werner in the same car.
Everyone else in LMP2 best just fold now.

7. Sebastian Vettel (F1)
I think Luscious Liz is cheating on Seb.
6. Jeff Gordon (NASCAR)
Jeff. Take lessons from Carl Edwards on how to wreck somebody properly, that wasn’t even worth parking you for.
Watch the sorry excuse for retaliation here.
5. Robert Kubica (F1)
Yep, it happened, you weren’t dreaming, a Renault really did finish second.
Look, more proof
4. Lewis Hamilton (F1)
The Australian government: Saying what even the Rankings can’t.
3. Denny Hamlin (NASCAR)
Denny shows Lewis Hamilton what he should have done this weekend.
Use Hoon driving to overcome inexplicable pit strategy.
NASCAR Martinsville results.
2. Will Power (Indycar)
OK, so he won the race but the real hero of Monday was whoever put this advertisement on during the UK coverage.
1. Jenson Button (F1)
Lewis Hamilton baffled as Button’s call to pit for slicks, as driver shows ability to think without Ron Dennis hand moving his mouth.
