F1 Standings after 2021 Turkish Grand Prix

    Valtteri Bottas took maximum points at Istanbul Park with a dominant drive at the 2021 Turkish GP but how did it affect the Formula 1 Drivers' and Constructors Championship standings?


    A dominant display from Valtteri Bottas saw the Mercedes driver take victory at the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, with Lewis Hamilton eventually finishing fifth. But are the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings affected?

    Hamilton made a charge through the field, eventually making it to third place, but was called into for a pit stop on Lap 51 which resulted in a drop to fifth position. 

    As a result, Verstappen retakes the lead of the Drivers’ Championship from Hamilton, with the Dutchman opening up a six-point gap on his title rival. 

    Interestingly, no driver has had more than an eight point advantage at the top of the standings this season, and after the last six Grand Prix we have had the Drivers’ Championship lead change four times.
