Inside the moment that shocked the F1 world: Alpine boss fires brutal shot at Oscar Piastri after Aussie’s ‘lack of loyalty’ for explosive McLaren switch

Young Aussie driver Oscar Piastri left the Formula 1 world in shock last year when heĀ revealed in the middle of the season that he would leave the Alpine Academy to join McLaren as a full-time driver in 2023. Cameras showed Piastri working out at Alpine’s first-class facilities while the team boss spoke about what an asset the Aussie was to his team. Shortly afterwards Piastri signed with McLaren and the news hit home with Szafnauer. The team boss fired another shot at Piastri after the Dutch GP when Ricciardo – who Piasti will be replacing next season – finished in 17th place.
