Australian motorsport sensation Oscar Piastri has declared his intention to join Daniel Ricciardo in Formula One as soon as next year.

The 20-year-old from Melbourne is the reigning Formula 3 world champion and has set his eyes on taking out the Formula 2 championship this year.

Being managed and mentored by Australian racing great Mark Webber, Piastri said his ambitions to spend two years racing on the second tier had changed.

A race victory in the opening round of the Formula 2 season has emboldened Piastri, who is fourth in the driver standings, to chase his Formula one dream sooner.

“I think I’m definitely going to be pushing to try and get there next year,” Piastri said.
