The most recent race in the 2021 season was the Portuguese Grand Prix which was won by Hamilton on May 2.
 
Hamilton was followed by Red Bull-Racing-Honda driver Max Verstappen and Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes respectively. 
  
As a reward for his good form in the current season, Hamilton is sitting at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings.

Hamilton was ecstatic after winning his second race in the current campaign which was the Portuguese Grand Prix. 
 
"What a race! It was awesome. At the start, I was obviously putting pressure on Valtteri, very difficult to pass, but I thought I was going to get him," Hamilton said. 
 
"Then we got the Safety Car and I did everything to keep the temperatures right in the tyres but the restart, I literally took my eyes off Valtteri for one second to see where Max was and Valtteri had gone. 
 
"So that was a mistake. Then following that, one other mistake was that I was in the tow of Valtteri and I just should have just stayed there. But instead I moved over and gave Max the tow and he came flying past me."
 
Mercedes are placed at the top of the Constructors' Championship standings and they were followed by Red Bull Racing-Honda and McLaren-Mercedes respectively.
