Which standings has Lewis Hamilton fallen down?

F1 has now released its latest update to the power rankings, and it seems that Lewis Hamilton’s slide shows no signs of slowing down, with the Brit now ranked outside the top ten after a tricky Japanese Grand Prix weekend.

In fact, Ferrari have two drivers inside the top three, with Carlos Sainz on top of the pile with an average score of 9.1/10 so far this season.

Hamilton’s team-mate, George Russell, also fell down the rankings slightly to ninth after enjoying a pretty average weekend by his standards.

Major rival Fernando Alonso enjoys a big rise after his Suzuka performance, moving up three spots to sixth.

A surprise outcome also sees Yuki Tsunoda lifted inside the top ten overall for the first time this season.
