Daniel Ricciardo offers advice to Oscar Piastri as his replacement prepares to make his Formula 1 debut…and reveals why his struggles at McLaren could make life easier for the young Aussie

Daniel Ricciardo has urged Oscar Piastri to absorb as much information as he can as the young Australian prepares for his Formula One debut. The 21-year-old will replace his compatriot on the grid this year after spending last season as the reserve driver for Alpine and Ricciardo encouraged him tomake the most of his rookie season. A world champion in Formula 2 and Formula 3 over the past two seasons, Piastri has long been considered one of Formula One’s rising stars but Ricciardo warned him to keep expectations in check. McLaren reportedly agreed a $14million payout with Ricciardo to replace him a year earlier than anticipated following two disappointing seasons.
