Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have both finished first and second so far in this young F1 season, however it's the Brit who sits atop the standings thanks to the extra point he earned at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver got the better of his Mercedes rival in Italy after keeping his nose clean and cruising past the finish line with a more than 20 second advantage. All in all Hamilton will be happy to have finished second given he lost control of his car and his front wing hit the barriers while trying to get out the gravel.

Although the two drivers have alternated first and second place finishes at the opening two events, Hamilton remains atop the standings after picking up an extra point by setting the fastest lap in Italy on lap 60.

Watch Hamilton's full lap in the video below.
