World News – UA – F1: Mark Webber on Formula 1 youth plan


Mark Webber has predicted that his protégé Oscar Piastri will be able to drive in Formula 1 until 2023 while the young gun prepares for his test drive with Renault

When the Australian teenager wanted to get behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car for the first time in Bahrain on Friday, Webber said the goal was to have Piastri in an F1 place within two years

Piastri has confirmed his status as Australia’s rising star in international motorsport after winning the Formula 3 title at the Grand Prix of Tuscany last month in a thrilling final that will propel him to Formula 2 next year – just below the Formula 1 level

Webber has said Piastri is ‘in demand’ among the F2 squads and hopes a seat will be confirmed for him in the coming weeks

The nine-time Australian Grand Prix winner says a Formula 1 race in 2023 is a realistic goal for the 19-year-old Melbourne racing driver

« Every year is a huge year, every race is a big deal for Oscar for the next few years, » said Webber, who runs Piastri

« So it’s a year or two (for him to get into Formula 1) One year would be very quick, two years would be more realistic, so look at 2023 type_quote_end

« At the moment we have to prepare for anything that affects his performance in the formula There are a lot of seats moving and it is important to look for young and fresh blood to deliver

« Although unfortunately there are currently a lot of rich fathers who buy teams which is not useful, I hope the talent will only support it within Renault, because Renault is a team factory and they want the best in their cars « 

Piastri got his F1 test drive with his fellow Renault Sport Academy drivers as a « reward » for his victory in the Formula 3 championship

Webber said Piastri deserved this opportunity and predicted it would only help his performance in Formula 2 over the next year

« It’s a great time for every Australian to step into real life It’s going to be a big step forward, he knows that, » said Webber

« The Renault team has prepared him very well in the simulator. He’s out there and on one of the happiest days of his life, so I’m sure he’s going to soak up and enjoy it

« He deserves it As we know, he won the Formula 3 championship and it’s a small gift for him to have done that

« Technically Oscar didn’t need to be in this test group, but based on his results this year, they’ve taken him to some extent and give him a brilliant run. »

« It’s real It’s not just a demonstration He’s going to be a tired boy and they send some really good engineers that I knew when I was a Renault test driver 20 years ago

« So this is a huge moment and it becomes real when you are exposed to this professionalism It will only help him in his Formula 2 season next year »
