Australia’s last F1 world champion backs prodigious young gun Oscar Piastri to win a title despite McLaren’s issues: ‘Everything he has ever put his bum in he has won’

Formula 1 great Alan Jones has backed Oscar Piastri to become a world champion and believes the young rookie has already shown in his talent in a struggling McLaren. ‘I think he can go on to be world champion,’ Jones said on Saturday. A world champion in Formula 2 and Formula 3 in 2020 and 2021, Piastri has long been considered one of Formula 1’s rising stars. ‘He has certainly got the ability to go on and be a world champion.’. Former world champion Damon Hill echoed Jones’ stance, insisting Piastri already looked at ‘home’ in Formula 1 just two races into his career. ‘[He has been] very solid, very professional and confident,’ the 1996 world champion said.
