Daniel Ricciardo was imperious from the front after he overtook Max Verstappen at the start of the 2021 Italian Grand Prix and went on to win at Monza, but with the Dutchman colliding with Lewis Hamilton, how are the F1 Drivers’ Championship standings affected?

Hamilton and Verstappen came together at the first chicane after a slower than usual pit stop from the Mercedes man put him back on track just ahead of his Red Bull rival. 

That resulted in Verstappen trying to put his car up the inside, but he his the sausage kerb and the Red Bull landed on top of Hamilton’s Mercedes and both cars were out.
