McLaren have agreed a fresh multi-year contract extension with Oscar Piastri that will keep the Australian at the British team until at least the end of 2026.
Piastri already had a deal to race for the team in 2024, having signed a multi-year agreement to make his debut this season, but so strong have his performances been so far in 2023, McLaren wanted to cement his long-term futur
The 22-year-old took his first top-three finish in F1 when he secured second in the Sprint in Belgium and has scored points on six occasions, most recently in Singapore when he fought back from 17th to finish seventh.
“It’s fantastic to confirm that Oscar has signed a multi-year extension with the team,” said Team Principal Andrea Stella. “Oscar is an asset to McLaren and constantly impresses with his performance, work ethic and attitude, so it was an easy decision for the team to make.
“He has already proved pivotal to the team, so it’s brilliant to have his vote of confidence as we push to win championships again in the future. I look forward to seeing him develop with us as we continue this journey together.”
