Charles Leclerc's win at the Austrian Grand Prix has helped him to reclaim P2 in the battle for the World Championship.

The Ferrari driver added 25 points to his tally by taking victory at the Red Bull Ring, putting him ahead of Sergio Perez in the standings.

Max Verstappen maintains his 38-point lead at the top after finishing second in Austria, and also claimed an extra point for the fastest lap.

Perez and Carlos Sainz both retired from the event, and sit in third and fourth respectively. Sainz's non-score has also enabled George Russell to close in, with the Mercedes driver now only five points away from Sainz.

Alpine and Haas make progress

Ferrari have slightly reduced Red Bull's lead at the top of the Constructors' Championship from 62 points to 56, while Mercedes are 66 points away from the Scuderia in third.

McLaren and Alpine each had both drivers finish in the points. However, Alpine are the ones who have gained, having now equalled McLaren on 81 points in the battle for fourth.

Haas also celebrated a double points finish for Mick Schumacher and Kevin Magnussen, which has helped the American squad to move up into seventh.
