McLaren boss hails Oscar Piastri as future F1 champion
McLaren CEO Zak Brown has expressed his belief that Oscar Piastri, despite currently trailing Lando Norris in the standings, has the potential to become a future Formula 1 World Champion. Piastri, the Australian rookie, was signed by McLaren and has been paired with Norris for the 2023 championship. While the team’s results have been mixed so far, Brown is impressed with Piastri’s performance and sees great potential in him.
Piastri faced car troubles in Bahrain and Miami, which hindered his chances of scoring points. Additionally, a collision with Pierre Gasly in Saudi Arabia damaged his MCL60. However, Piastri managed to secure points with an eighth-place finish in his home race in Australia and narrowly missed out on points with an eleventh-place finish in Azerbaijan.
