The result of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix has had a significant effect on the World Championship standings, particularly due to Ferrari's double retirement.

Max Verstappen has further increased his lead at the top of the Formula 1 World Championship standings following the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, while teammate Sergio Perez has also moved up thanks to Ferrari's misfortunes.

Verstappen is sitting on 150 points, 21 ahead of Perez, who has now overtaken Charles Leclerc for second place.

The Red Bull duo finished 1-2 at the Baku City Circuit, but it was a nightmare day for Leclerc and fellow Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz, who both retired due to mechanical issues.

This means that Leclerc remains on 116 points, while Sainz is back in fifth with 83. George Russell fills P4 between them, having scored another podium finish in Azerbaijan.

Red Bull soar ahead of Ferrari in Constructors' standings

The impact of Ferrari's double DNF can be particularly felt in the Constructors' Championship.

Following the last race in Monaco, Red Bull led the Scuderia by 36 points. That has now grown to 80 points, with the Milton Keynes-based squad having amassed a total of 279 points.

With no points scored in Baku, Ferrari remain on 199, and are now only 28 points ahead of third-placed Mercedes.
