F1: Mark Webber on Formula One plan for young gun Oscar Piastri

Published

on

Mark Webber has predicted his protege Oscar Piastri can be racing in Formula One by 2023 as the young gun prepares for his test drive with Renault.

As the Australian teenager gets set to jump behind the wheel of a Formula One car for the first time in Bahrain on Friday, Webber said the goal was to have Piastri in an F1 seat within two years.

Piastri confirmed his status as Australia’s rising star of international motorsport after claiming the Formula 3 title in a thrilling finale at the Tuscan Grand Prix last month, which is set to propel him to Formula 2 next year – the rung just below Formula One.

While the racing world celebrated the safety protocols and good fortune that allowed Romain Grosjean to leave his car unscathed after a terrifying crash in Bahrain, Australian Renault driver Daniel Ricciardo expressed his “disgust and disappointment” with Formula 1.

Grosjean’s car rammed into the barriers as he braked hard from around 250 km/h (155 mph), the front part hammering into the steel guardrails which buckled.

The 34-year-old, trapped in his cockpit, flew under the barrier as it gave way and as his Haas car burst into flames, splitting in two on impact.
