The points impact of Renault’s double Suzuka disqualification

After being stripped of its double points-paying finishes at the Japanese Grand Prix, the revised results put Renault under pressure from Toro Rosso for fifth in the Formula 1 Constructors’ Championship.

It also moves Racing Point driver Sergio Perez from 11th to ninth, above both Renault drivers, in the drivers’ contest. Daniel Ricciardo and Hulkenberg slip to 12th and 13th, falling back behind McLaren’s Lando Norris and Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat as well.

Mercedes’ constructors title victory also remains confirmed – by one point – despite Charles Leclerc being promoted to sixth and gaining an extra two points for the Ferrari team.

Leclerc’s bonus points reduce Ferrari’s deficit to 177 points, with only 176 available over the remaining four grands prix. It also boosts his advantage in third place in the drivers’ championship to 11 points over Max Verstappen and Sebastian Vettel
