The F1 junior that has run out of places to prove himself

The dominant force of the junior single-seater ranks finds himself without a drive for 2022, but it isn’t stopping Oscar Piastri from plotting his path to the top. With Alpine potentially set for a driver dilemma for 2023, the newly-crowned Formula 2 champion is ready and waiting for his F1 shot

In Australia there is a saying: “give it a red hot crack", which roughly translates to “give it your all”. This attitude epitomises the approach of newly crowned Formula 2 champion Oscar Piastri.

Not only has this talent from Melbourne given it “a red hot crack”, he’s exceeded even his own wildest expectations, ripping up the junior single-seater record books to win an unprecedented trio of Formula Renault Eurocup (2019), FIA Formula 3 (2020) and F2 titles in consecutive years.
