Oscar Piastri WILL replace Daniel Ricciardo in Formula One next season after McLaren confirm they have won their legal dispute with Alpine to sign young Aussie star

Oscar Piastri will make his Formula One debut next season, with the 21-year-old set to replace fellow Australian Daniel Ricciardo at McLaren. 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 and has spent the current season as Alpine’s reserve drive. ‘I’m extremely excited to be making my F1 debut with such a prestigious team as McLaren and I’m very grateful for the opportunity that’s been offered to me,’ Piastri said on Friday.
