World Championship standings after race one of 2020 F1 season

The first Grand Prix weekend of 2020 has come to an end and that means that for the first time this year we also have a World Championship table. Thanks to his victory Valtteri Bottas is able to take 25 World Championship points which puts him in the lead. Here's how things look after round 1. 

Verstappen dropped out early in the race at the Red Bull Ring because of electrical problems with his RB16. As a result, the Red Bull Racing driver is already chasing the lead group for the title. 

In the World Championship standings, Charles Leclerc is the surprising number two behind Bottas. The Ferrari driver managed to escape all the chaos in Spielberg. Lando Norris also finished on the podium and on top of that the McLaren driver drove the fastest lap of the day, putting him on sixteen points after the first GP of the year.

For Alexander Albon there also seemed to be nice points for the taking, but a collision with Lewis Hamilton prevented that. The British six-time world champion had to pay for that incident with a time penalty of five seconds, so he has to settle for twelve points.
