Not even Charles Leclerc or George Russell managed to win three single-seater titles in a row on their way up the ladder, but in 2021, Piastri followed up his 2019 Formula Renault and 2020 F3 successes with the Formula 2 title.

Despite never taking pole, Piastri won the F3 title during a COVID-19 effected 2020 campaign, notching up six podiums, including two wins with PREMA Racing.

But he took his performances to another level in F2. Piastri finished outside of the points just four times, taking 14 top five finishes from 23 races, including a haul of six wins, five podiums and five consecutive poles.

The Australian will get his long-awaited Formula 1 debut in 2023 when he lines up for McLaren alongside Lando Norris, becoming the first F3 Champion to make the step-up.
