Oscar worthy Ben Hunt: McLaren’s costly Oscar Piastri battle as they wait on verdict despite already paying Ricciardo £10m to leave

MCLAREN will discover this week whether they can sign Oscar Piastri from Alpine as Daniel Ricciardo’s replacement. Staggeringly, there were no exit clauses from McLaren, which is most unlike Formula One deals. However, for all McLaren’s ruthlessness in axeing Ricciardo they have stopped short of confirming Piastri. They met yesterday and their verdict is expected over the next few days, with both McLaren and Alpine confident of winning. But of the two most famous cases it has presided over, the driver’s original team have won. Should the CRB again side with the driver’s original team — in this case Alpine — then the matter is still not resolved.
