Oscar Piastri, a talented Australian racing driver born on 6th April 2001, has achieved remarkable success in the world of motorsports. He is currently competing in Formula One for McLaren and has won numerous accolades, setting impressive records along the way.

Piastri secured the 2019 Formula Renault Eurocup title with R-ace GP, and followed it up with wins in the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship and the 2021 Formula 2 Championship, both with Prema Racing.

In his rookie season, he became the sixth driver to clinch the GP2/Formula 2 Championship, and the fifth driver to win the GP3/Formula 3 Championship and the GP2/Formula 2 Championship in consecutive seasons. Piastri is also the first driver in history to claim the Formula Renault Eurocup, Formula 3, and Formula 2 championships (or equivalent) in successive rookie years.

Piastri’s outstanding talent has earned him a place in the Renault Sport Academy in January 2020. In October of the same year, he tested his skills with the Renault F1 Team, driving the Renault R.S.18 at Bahrain International Circuit alongside fellow academy drivers Christian Lundgaard and Zhou Guanyu.

In 2021, he continued to be part of the academy, which has now been rebranded as the Alpine Academy and took part in the post-season young drivers’ test at Yas Marina Circuit in December.

Following his remarkable win in the Formula 2 championship, Piastri was named as reserve driver for the Alpine F1 Team for the 2022 season. In addition, he was also available as a reserve driver for McLaren after an agreement between the two teams.

After a contract dispute between Alpine F1 and McLaren, he eventually inked a deal to drive for McLaren in the 2023 season with a full-time race seat alongside Lando Norris.

At the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix, Piastri clinched his inaugural sprint race victory, having secured pole position in the sprint shootout for the first time in his Formula One journey. In the Grand Prix race at the same weekend, he crossed the line in second place, outperforming teammate Norris, marking his highest finish in Formula 1 at the time. This was also his second podium finish of the season. Additionally, he garnered consecutive driver of the day accolades. Piastri finished a mere 4.8 seconds behind the raining champion, Max Verstappen.
