Penalty Points 2.0

Back in April I done a blog post looking at what penalty points are and how many each driver has. This time I want to focus on how many the drivers have now, half way through the season.

Penalty points get taken off after a year, so seeing as this time last year we was racing instead of summer break, it could shake the order up…

Updated Penalty Points August 2021

A couple of the drivers need to watch out especially Norris and Perez, they are both only 4 points away from a race ban and with how close this season is, one race ban could change the whole dynamic in the championship standings…

The order has changed quite a bit, both Hamilton and Russell going down the order quite a bit. A few of the drivers have managed to stay in the same spot, like Verstappen, Schumacher and Ricciardo.

I think it will be interesting to see at the end of the season where the drivers are with the points, I can imagine a big shake up again…
