How Alpine F1 junior Oscar Piastri is spending 2022

By:

Oscar Piastri is a consecutive champion of F3 and F2, matching the achievements of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Mercedes’ George Russell before they made their big breaks in F1. Yet Piastri is set for a year on the sidelines as Alpine’s reserve driver. What more can he do to break through, asks Oleg Karpov?

“I feel I have done basically everything I can to try and 
prove myself,” reigning Formula 2 champion and Alpine’s reserve driver for this year 
Oscar Piastri tells GP Racing. “Mainly on the track, but I feel like I’ve proven
 myself off the track as well. I think the results speak for themselves, really. I don’t really think I have 
to add too much more.”

It’s impossible to argue otherwise. After winning the Formula Renault Eurocup in 2019, Piastri switched to Formula 3 for 2020 and took the title at his first attempt. Then he moved up to F2 and again claimed the crown in his rookie season. There’s really not much more to add.
