Oscar is such a well spoken, grounded young man. He definitely appears to have the tools to fight at front of the grid. It will be fun to see him and Lando as the car improves.
Yeah so weird to completely blindside alpine after all their support 😂
@SoloXFuRy their the ones that didn’t have a seat for him at the time. He didn’t feel he had seat for this year unless he went elsewhere, so he did!
@T‘ea Valenti idk he kicked danny ric and is suffering now
@The Abhiram you think they would have been better off with ricky in that seat?
All of the RC racing community in Australia is so proud of this young man. I’ve raced against Oscar when he was about 7. He always lapped me and most of us full grown men! 😂
Is the RC car powered by an electric motor?
@YL Yang yes Brushless electric motors and lipo batteries
Oscar is now one of my favourites after this interview
Impressive guy for his years and certainly can see why he has been so successful with his confident yet humble demeanour.
It’s crazy to think of the mentality this young man has. His response to be informed that he would not be on the F1 grid in 2022 no matter what he did, was to qualify on pole, and win the feature race in all the remaining rounds.
As another rc racer it’s cool to see a f1 driver start with rc racing! Surprisingly once you get more in-depth into rc setup it carry’s very well into setup on real cars with adjustments being roughly the same, and changes also effecting the cars in the same ways! So much fun!
I can't believe how parallel the start of his career is compared to Hamilton
Yep, Rc racing is basically scaled down motor sport.
@RottieShep CALIBRE so is he going to come second in the championship this season?
Yeah its cool, but its not really that surprising that a small car and a big car works much in the same way
Such a kind guy, really happy to see him on the grid and especially on this interview. And he got his first f1 points 8n his home race, soo deserved!!
16:35 ad skip
S U B V E R T E D
TC reading out these ads is the worst thing i have ever witnessed
Should add an intro skip.
Sponsorblock extension ftw
As an rc hobbyist, I feel soo proud.
despite the car, hes had an impressive first impression in f1. cant wait to see more
Sounds like a younger Seb Vettel in his approach. Analytical first, driving as an engineer.
He reminds me a bit of Hamilton with the RC racing and also a bit of Max very focus on racing, a lot of the middle field have other hobbies like playing golf, but the true companions hobby is racing I think Max, Alonso, Vettel and Hamilton, they do promotional stuff but racing is/was everything to them.
Great interview & yes Oscar WILL win in a faster car
Funny to see the parallels with him and Ham when it comes to the start with RC cars.
My thoughts exactly. I wrote something similar but you worded it much better than me
Would be great if this was a video podcast!
He's strong 👊💪
I think there is more pressure on McLaren to perform then there is on Piastri to be fair.
So far this season has shown Piastri does not need to prove to McLaren they made the right decision in signing him..... McLaren has yet to prove that Piastri was right to go with them!
What a machine not in a bad way
Tom, what AFL team does Oscar support?
He might as well beat lando this year
I think Oscar made a Fantastic choice of picking mclaren over alpine because apart from mclaren struggling right now, mclaren and alpine will have the same paste when mclaren gets there paste back, but the main reason in my opinion how Oscar made a fantastic decision of picking mclaren over alpine is because hes teammates with a future world champion 👍👍👍
When's the paste due to come back?
Being teammates with a future world champion is one of the worst reasons to pick a team,nye doesn't get a share of Landos points.
Is this sarcasm?
I agree, cannot make pizza with the same paste 🤌🤌
He picked McLaren over Williams, an Alpine seat in 2023 was not on the cards when he signed with McLaren
If he beats lando that'll be Great. Lando was abit cocky towards danny
Stop being a dts fan 😂 no wonder f1 has so many toxic fans
"Dont move dudeee"
Fun fact, Logan Sargeant is a better driver than Oscar.
Fun fact, Oscar Piastri beat Logan Sargent in every junior formula category. Logan Sargent hasn't made it to Q3
He would if FIA didn’t remove his time for literally staying in the track. Go look at this time, he never left the track yet other drivers did and they never got their time deleted.
@Eric Rossoni Sargent barely pulled a super licence out of last season.
Piastri is a 3x back to back to back champ who has had incredibly strong competition all through his career.
And Sargeant is already performing better. He’s just getting unlucky in Qualies but. He’s been the best rookie by far. Piastri couldn’t even get out of car damage on the first lap lol
@Eric Rossoni Sargeant is in a better car, and Gasly hit Oscar, it wasn't Oscar's fault.
The lewis hamilton story all over again.
Why is this video not available in Canada?
You should consider moving.
PS TRIPLE IS BALLING
Need the background music
It’s radio controlled not remote, actually research it or listen to Oscar
2 minute intro. Too long.
No video??? I only get sound.
yes i think your pc is broken
Am i supposed to just stare at the same screen for an hour? Where is the video footage?
Your generation needs constant enterntainment! Back in my day you would stare at the wall for fun, get your ADHD in order!
Jk, it's just a podcast though. I usually listen on Spotify, as there's no video anyway
Would you like them to make it shiny and sparkly while they're at it? Oooo sparkly things.
@John-e5 why not have oskar in the studio and a camera filming him Speak?
It's a podcast lol, what do you expect?
Apparently you have never listen nor watch beyond the grid
WHOPPING MISTAKE FROM PIASTRI....😂😂
It’s a shame Oscar will waste his talent at McLaren.
Get all duh hunnies with tha PS TRIPLE. PS TRIPLE BALLING
Do you think Oscar regrets THAT post yet 😂😂
judging by the fact mclaren have a whole new aero team and tunnel all taking effect within the next 18 months, no.
No, because he was already signed to McLaren & Alpine previous to him signing for McLaren he didn’t have a Contract or a Race Seat for 2023…
@metro3313 it's not copium, it's hopium....
You're assuming alpine was going to choose him for next year. They weren't, they only picked him because of Alfonso deciding to leave. They wouldn't of chosen him if Alfonso stayed.
Let’s hear an explanation for the F he got in business ethics.
I think you mean the F Alpine got in business ethics.
Red bull are cheats
@soolan1190 yes I am son haha
@Soolan he is right they are
He is better than Hamilton
@Slack Panda Hear, hear
ur kidding, right?
Wake up Son…… put the Dab down.
@Slack Panda 2 races in, and he already has 2 Championships separating himself and Max. True 🐐
@Slack Panda 6 of his championships were just thanks to the car, stop overrating
His talents are being wasted at McLaren, should have just stayed at Alpine, I guess that's karma
It's been 2 races, chill out mate.
Piastri joined McLaren because Alpine took him for granted and kept him in suspense.
@Kb McLaren is done in this sport
@peterfighter Yeah like any serious organisation would get rid of Fernando Alonso for an unproven rookie driver
To succeed Monisha Kaltenborn in terms of worst contract management ever.
Yes, Alpine did do the worst contract management ever.
