Although Lewis Hamilton ($33.3m) won last weekend’s Portuguese Grand Prix, his title rival Max Verstappen ($25.3m) is still the more efficient driver (Fantasy points-wise) as he has scored 116 points so far to Hamilton’s 128, but costs eight million less.
FORM GUIDE: Is 2021 the year Mercedes’ exceptional Spanish GP run comes to an end?
The team of the season so far includes McLaren ($18.9m) as constructors, freeing up enough budget to purchase AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly ($11.7m), Ferrari’s pairing of Carlos Sainz ($14.4m) and Charles Leclerc ($17.9m), McLaren’s hotshot Lando Norris ($13.8m) and championship contender Verstappen of Red Bull.
But is that the way forward for this weekend?
It might be worth looking at Alpine’s Esteban Ocon ($10.2m) or homecoming driver Fernando Alonso for this race as the Enstone/Viry squad have shown considerable improvement over the past two races in Imola and Portimao. That’s reflected by Ocon’s two consecutive World Championship points finishes.
Alonso’s price ($15.0m) dropped by 0.6m since the start of the season, and now may be the time to buy him if you want to make a profit as he may start recovering points in the coming races.

Note that in two races’ time, Hamilton, Verstappen, Leclerc and Norris will be on a double-streak. If they make it five consecutive top 10 qualifying and race performances, those drivers will net 15 extra points in Azerbaijan – so keep that in mind as you plan your changes going forward.
As for the upcoming Spanish GP, Red Bull and Alpine are the only two teams on the verge of a three-race scoring streak.
Red Bull ($26.1m) could score five extra points if both Perez and Verstappen qualify in the top 10 this weekend, while Alpine ($15.2m) could score 10 extra points if they see Ocon and Alonso both score top 10 finishes this weekend.
