F1 Standings after 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix

Max Verstappen took victory at the 2023 Hungarian GP, so how do the Formula 1 Drivers' and Constructors Championship standings look?

-

Max Verstappen extended his championship lead past 100 points over Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez with a crushing, record-breaking win of the 2023 Hungarian Grand Prix.

It’s just 77 days since Verstappen started ninth in the Miami GP with Perez on pole, in a winner-takes-all race for the lead of the championship.

But Verstappen now looks like he’s got both hands on the world championship trophy even before the summer break – and can start calculating at what point his lead could become unbeatable.

Meanwhile Sergio Perez extended his lead in second over Fernando Alonso, who’s just six points ahead of Lewis Hamilton now for third.

There were only two changes in the standings, though Daniel Ricciardo would’ve moved ahead of Nyck de Vries in the championship already were it not for the Dutchman’s 12th place at the Monaco GP.

Ricciardo finished 13th in Hungary but will jump to 19th if he can pick up points in Spa.

F1 2023 Drivers’ Standings after Hungarian GP

Two changes to the standings, with George Russell overhauling Carlos Sainz for fifth place. He scored eight points, twice that of the Spaniard in Hungary, but Sainz will have chance to immediately wrest that place back next time out in Belgium.

A likely more permanent change is Lando Norris moving ahead of Lance Stroll for eighth with his second successive podium.

F1 2023 Constructors’ Standings after Hungarian GP

Behind Red Bull, McLaren were the best team on the day with a points haul of 28 to Mercedes‘ 20 in third.

However, they’re still almost 100 points behind Ferrari thanks to the Woking outfit’s dismal start to the season.

Really, the whole constructors’ championship order looks pretty set for a while. Ferrari are slowly chipping away at Aston Martin but would need a strong points haul in Spa to move ahead before the summer break, while Alpine aren’t catching McLaren any time soon.

Below, Williams and Haas remain the only teams tied on points, Alex Albon missed out on points by eight seconds in 11th at the Hungaroring.
