In an alternate universe somewhere, Oscar Piastri is getting his practice in ahead of the IFMAR World Championship for remote control cars. In this universe, the young Australian is still racing, but he’s inside of the car, and it’s much bigger.
Oscar Piastri’s route to racing was originally a little different to most. Ultimately, he ended up following a pretty conventional path, which has included various karting championships, as well as two single-seater titles - in Formula Renault Eurocup and Formula 3.
The Renault junior became the second F3 champion in 2020, recording two wins and 164 points, beating out Theo Pourchaire by two.
