F1 Standings after 2021 Mexican Grand Prix

Max Verstappen took maximum points at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez with a dominant drive at the 2021 Mexican GP, but how did it affect the Formula 1 Drivers' and Constructors Championship standings?


Max Verstappen was head and shoulders above the rest at the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, once again finishing ahead of Lewis Hamilton. But how did it affect the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings?

Hamilton, starting second on the grid behind his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas, was unable to do anything as Verstappen’s Red Bull took the lead into Turn 1. From there, Hamilton was at a loss and had no answer for the Dutchman as he strolled to victory at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

As a result, Verstappen extends his lead in the Drivers’ Championship to 19 points after Bottas claimed fastest lap in Mexico City, taking the extra point from the Red Bull man.
