Piastri believes he missed out on F1 seat for 2022

Oscar Piastri admitted being disappointed for not being able to secure a seat in Formula 1 for the upcoming season. 

Why it matters: Piastri said that he did anything to reach F1. He won two championships in a row, and he is currently leading the third one in the Formula 2 series. 


  • Despite being very consistent and having shown to be able to win races and championships, it looks almost impossible for Piastri to get a seat in Formula 1 for 2022.
  • The current leader of the F2 standings believes he did “a good job of putting myself in a pretty prime position for an F1 seat”. However, he was not linked to any of the current F1 teams with an available seat.
  • Piastri is a part of the Alpine Academy. However, Alpine does not have a customer team and it is difficult for it to find empty seats for its drivers. That is why Piastri risks to miss out on a Formula 1 seat next year.

All the moves in F1 are happening now or have already happened. So it’s a bit disappointing the way it’s kind of played out because I don’t know what more I could have done.
