F1 Standings after 2021 Russian Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton was victorious at the 2021 Russian Grand Prix as he took his 100th F1 win, but how did it affect the Formula 1 Drivers' Championship standings?

-

A rain soaked end to the 2021 Russian Grand Prix meant Lewis Hamilton took victory ahead of Lando Norris, while Max Verstappen stormed through the field to finish second. But are the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings affected?

Hamilton had an excellent chance to score heavy points over Verstappen as the Dutchman started from the back of the grid at Sochi after changing the engine on his Red Bull car. It looked like that was going to happen, but a late rain shower mixed up the field and allowed Verstappen into second, this minimising the potential damage caused by fitting a new power unit. 

That said Hamilton did overtake Verstappen at the top of the F1 Drivers’ Standings, turning a five point deficit into a two point lead over the Red Bull driver as the F1 circus heads to Turkey on October 8.
