Oscar Piastri’s shocking health problems at Baku Grand Prix revealed: Aussie young gun lost 3kg and only ate four pieces of toast over the entire race weekend

Oscar Piastri had to live off four pieces of toast all weekend, shed three kilograms in weight with a stomach bug, and was utterly luckless on the track over several gruelling, empty-handed days in Baku. Proud of your effort, @OscarPiastri (and the Doc)!’ That came after race engineer Tom Stallard told Piastri over the car radio on Saturday his 10th place finish in the sprint was ‘pretty bloody impressive … given everything else that’s been going on this weekend’. Talking to reporters after Sunday’s race, Piastri said: ‘Through the race, the illness didn’t impact me too much but I’m a lot lighter than I was at the start of the weekend. On Sunday evening Piastri posted to Twitter: ‘Not felt great all weekend so frustrated not to get points but happy to be fighting for top 10 positions throughout.
