F1 2021 has remained in first place on the UK retail charts for a third straight week, according to GfK for the week ending August 7, 2021. 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is up one spot to second place, despite a 30 percent drop in sales. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword dropped from second to fifth place as sales dipped 46 percent. 

Olympic Games Tokyo 2020: The Official Video Game has jumped up the charts from eighth to third place as sales increased 43 percent. The game will have benefitted from the final week of the Tokyo Olympics.
