Oscar Piastri (born 6 April 2001 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian racing driver, who will make his FIA Formula 2 Championship debut at the start of the 2021 season.[1] The reigning FIA Formula 3 Championship Champion, Piastri would race for Prema Racing in 2021, with backing from the Renault Sport Academy.[1][2]

Background

Piastri began his career in karting at the age of ten, becoming a professional in 2014 as he claimed numerous national titles in his native Australia.[3] A move to Europe followed in 2015 to allow the Australian racer to compete in the European and World Championships, before he made his debut in a single seater in 2016.[3] Piastri duly joined the Formula 4 UAE Championship that season, claiming sixth in the Championship with two podiums.[3]

Aussie Aspirations: 2017 - 2020

2017 saw Piastri remain at F4 level, although he instead moved into the British F4 Championship with Arden.[3] There, Piastri would have an impressive debut season, claiming six victories en-route to finishing as runner-up to Jamie Caroline, earning Piastri a seat in the Formula Renault Eurocup for 2018.[3] That season saw Piastri, again competing for Arden, claim three podiums en-route to ninth in the Championship, with the Australian racer also taking part in the end-of-season test for the GP3 Series.[3]

The 2019 season saw Piastri move teams in the Eurocup, a ploy which appeared to work as the Australian racer claimed four victories and the Championship crown.[3] That earned him the attention of Renault F1, who added him to their Academy roster, as well as Prema Racing who added the Australian racer to their FIA Formula 3 Championship squad for 2020.[3] After a delayed start to the season, Piastri emerged as a major title pretender, and would duly claim the Championship on the final day with two wins, edging out Théo Pourchaire by three points.[3]

Formula Two History

Piastri was heavily linked with a promotion to the FIA Formula 2 Championship after his triumph in the 2020 F3 Championship, with Prema Racing expected to retain his services for 2021.[1] Confirmation of those reports was subsequently made on 1 December 2021, with Piastri becoming the first driver to be officially confirmed for the 2021 season, with Prema Racing remaining as his employers.[1]

Post Formula Two Career

Piastri signed a deal to join the Renault Sport Academy in January 2020, and would get his first taste of a Formula One car in a private test in November 2020, driving a 2018-spec Renault R.S.18 alongside fellow RSA members Guanyu Zhou and Christian Lundgaard.[4]
