McLaren’s Oscar Piastri admitted his Lap 16 clash with Lewis Hamilton during the Las Vegas Grand Prix “was an awkward
In the inaugural race at the Las Vegas Strip Circuit, Oscar Piastri made a strong start, gaining ten positions in the first 10 laps. However, he had a collision with Hamilton, resulting in a puncture for both drivers. Piastri quickly pitted for a new set of tires, but he believes the incident didn’t significantly impact his overall race performance. He was able to climb up to fourth place during the midpoint of the race but had to give it up due to the rule that mandates the use of two compounds during a Grand Prix. He ultimately finished in 10th place, but both Piastri and McLaren Team Principal Andrea Stella were disappointed with the result, feeling that they had the pace for a better outcome.
