Oscar Piastri has become the 2021 Formula 2 champion after finishing 3rd in the opening race of the weekend.

The first of two champions has already been revealed in Abu Dhabi. Piastri officially took the F2 title in his rookie season after finishing 3rd in Sprint Race 1. None of his opponents can reach him in the standings with two races remaining.

After Sprint Race 1, Piastri has 5 pole positions, 5 wins, 10 podiums, and 213.5 points scored.

In the 2022 season, the Australian will make another step closer to F1 as he is going to be the Alpine reserve driver.
