Oscar Piastri? Yeah, he’s a newbie in Formula 1. But boy, did he make a splash! You’d hardly notice it was his first time in the big leagues, especially with Lando Norris by his side.

Mark Webber, a seasoned F1 driver, is the one guiding this 22-year-old prodigy. And let me tell you, he’s bursting with pride.

Webber’s Take on Piastri

Webber couldn’t hide his joy when talking about Piastri. “I’m over the moon, really,” he told Motorsport.com. “Never in a million years did we think we’d kick off like this.” But he’s quick to add, there’s still work to be done.

Piastri, in his rookie season with McLaren, bagged 97 points. That’s ninth place in the world championship, folks!

The season started off a bit rocky for Andrea Stelle’s team. But as the saying goes, it’s not about how you start, but how you finish. And they finished strong, with the car getting better and better.
