Oscar Piastri finishes with points for the second time in his six-race career – as the Aussie rookie admits having Max Verstappen in front of him was ‘useful’ in a ‘difficult’ Monaco Grand Prix

Oscar Piastri has plenty of reasons to smile after claiming tenth position in Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo – a race the McLaren rookie described as his most difficult yet. It was the young Australian’s second points finish of his maiden F1 season – which he admitted afterwards was his most difficult, considering the slippery conditions and his disappointing practice sessions. I think after, you know, from a personal note, after all the practice sessions, I wasn’t very pleased with my driving,’ Piastri said. ‘But, you know, these are the weekends where you learn the most, trying to make that jump from practice to quali and also in these conditions — I don’t think it gets too much harder than Monaco in the rain on slicks. ‘I don’t think there were any touches, but some very, very close moments, especially when we were on the slicks,’ he said.
