It’s been so easy all through 2023 to get excited about Oscar Piastri. Virtually from the start he’s been impressive, even when the McLaren MCL60 wasn’t initially capable of getting the results.

From what we’d seen in his rapid rise to first-year championships in both Formula 3 in 2020 and then Formula 2 in 2021, it was clear that there was something special going on with the young kid from Melbourne – so, much was expected. Sometimes that doesn’t happen. But each time he’s moved up, he’s always looked like he belonged. And F1 proved no different.
