Following Renault's disqualification from the Japanese Grand Prix result, positions in the championship have been altered.
The FIA announced on Wednesday that Renault had been found guilty of using driver aids, following a protest launched by Racing Point in Suzuka.
The Mexican driver has progressed three places due to the penalty, while Daniel Ricciardo has lost three spots, slipping back to 12th place in the standings.
Lance Stroll also benefitted from the disqualification of Ricciardo, moving up one place in both the race results and the drivers' championship.
|Position||Driver||Team||Old points||New points|
|9th||Sergio Perez||Racing Point||35||37|
|11th||Daniil Kvyat||Toro Rosso||33||34|
|14th||Kimi Raikkonen||Alfa Romeo||31||31|
|15th||Lance Stroll||Racing Point||19||21|
In the constructors' championship, Renault has dropped nine points amid its hunt for McLaren's fourth place spot.
The gap between the two now reads over 40 points, and with four races to go, the mountain that the Enstone squad is having to climb in order to get the better of McLaren is getting ever higher.
With 176 points left to play for in the remaining four races, the gap between Mercedes and Ferrari currently reads 177.
