F1 World Championship – All Change At the Top

by F1Fan on May 18, 2010

Red Bulls One two finish at the Monaco Grand Prix has really changed the landscape of both the Drivers and Constructors Championship.

Mark Webbers second win in as many weeks has catapulted him from fourth place into the lead of the Drivers championship and Sebastian Vettel jumps to Second. While both Red Bull teammates are tied for overall points Webber gets the lead position because he has two wins against Vettels one and in the FIA scoring system A win is better than any number of lower position finishes.

Jenson Button’s retirement on the third lap with Engine Failure resulted in his fall from first to fourth while Fernando Alonso’s remarkable drive from dead last to a 6th place finish in the race allowed him to jump ahead of Button only loosing one place falling from second to third in the championship.
