Hamilton is placed at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings and he is followed by Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas and Verstappen.

The 31-year-old is ecstatic after securing a podium finish at the Eifel Grand Prix and he reflected on his time with Renault ahead of his move to McLaren in 2021.
 
“To be honest it honestly feels like the first podium all over again. The feeling I have now is like that really happy shock, I guess," Ricciardo said.
 
“When I signed on the dotted line for this Renault contract it was to be up here and get a podium by year two. Obviously, next year is another story, I’m moving on.
 
"But I think this really does cap a pretty cool story that we’ve had and shared for these two years. And the good news is it’s not over yet.”
 
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point.
