Martin Brundle has suggested Oscar Piastri “gets involved in too many skirmishes” but believes the McLaren F1 driver will learn with experience.
Australian F1 rookie Oscar Piastri has had an impressive season, currently holding ninth place in the drivers’ championship. Although he has shown great performance, he has had a few clashes with Lewis Hamilton, including during the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Despite this, commentator Martin Brundle believes that Piastri will overcome these incidents with more experience and become a formidable competitor. Brundle also gave his opinion on Max Verstappen’s penalty for forcing Charles Leclerc wide at Turn 1, stating that the penalty was lenient considering the circumstances of the race. The race itself was filled with multiple incidents, including Verstappen’s daring move on George Russell, which ultimately resulted in a penalty for Russell and frustration for him. Sergio Perez also lost a place on the last lap to Leclerc, solidifying Red Bull’s first-ever one-two in the drivers’ championship.
