Red Bull driver Max Verstappen has overtaken Ferrari rival Charles Leclerc in the Formula 1 title race after a dramatic Spanish Grand Prix.

Having been 19 points adrift of Leclerc heading into the weekend, the Dutchman's victory, and the Monegasque's retirement, means Verstappen now holds a six-point advantage.

Sergio Perez holds third after completing a Red Bull 1-2, while George Russell's podium puts him fourth, just 36 points behind Verstappen despite Mercedes' early-season issues.

In the Constructors' standings, Red Bull have jumped Ferrari and are now 26 points clear of their rivals, with Mercedes watching on in third, 49 points further back.
