Sergio Perez managed to snatch a World Championship point from Lewis Hamilton by registering the fastest lap of the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

The point looked set for the seven-time World Champion, but Perez managed to take the bonus point on the last lap of the race after Red Bull pitted him for fresh tyres at the end.

Given how close the fight for the 2021 World Championship is, every point is crucial for Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen, whose lead in the Drivers' standings is now 14 points rather than 13 thanks to Perez' effort.
