Piastri finished in fourth place at Silverstone, just one spot behind his teammate Lando Norris, in a race where McLaren missed an opportunity for victory with both drivers.

Amidst challenging conditions, Piastri acknowledged the complexities involved in making split-second decisions during the race.
