I have painstakingly watched each of the 19 grand prix in the 2011 championship and found there is a direct correlation between smiles and points.Sebastian Vettel smiles in front of the cameras on average 39 times during a grand prix weekend, compared to 22 smiles for Jenson Button, 20 for Mark Webber,14 for Fernando Alonso and a miserable six for Lewis Hamilton.The only driver to buck the trend is Michael Schumacher,with an average of 17.But after all his success it’s no surprise he has so much to smile about.

Wow I would never have imagined that. Really, I needed someone to count their smiles. That’s brand new. Drivers scoring more points are happier during GP week-ends? Wow
