Oscar Piastre is risking a Formula 1 exit if he can’t compete with Lando Norris at McLaren, says 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg..
Piastre will be in the spotlight next year when he joins McLaren after leaving the Alpine drivers’ programme, with the Woking-based team making some efforts to bring him along with Norris, to replace Daniel Ricciardo.
A driver who has shown his talent in the lower classes of Formula, though, there is no reason why Piastri should not shine next season and compete with his new teammate, although Norris is in good shape at the moment.

In fact, the Briton is rightly seen as one of the brightest drivers on the grid as he takes charge at McLaren in recent years while Ricciardo is unfortunately struggling, and he presents one of the biggest challenges for a driver who arrives and tries to beat his team-mate.
Piastre will feel as though he has the ability to take on that challenge and also team up with Norris to push McLaren up the grid, although Rosberg thinks it’s a high-stakes move from the young Australian.
Rosberg’s warning to Bistri
“It’s a brave move from Oscar, it really is,” Rosberg told Sky Sports.
“Either he beats Lando or he’s basically out of the sport so it’s really tough, but he believes in himself. And if you think you’re that good, you should do it.”

Piastre must believe in himself and his talents now that he has this opportunity, and he obviously imagined the move to McLaren and the challenge of taking on Norris when he was first introduced to him, so he is likely to enjoy the opportunity rather than worry about it. the negative side.
Even if Pastrie ends up losing to Norris, it would be an exaggeration to say his Formula One career is over too, given that he hasn’t even started, and Oscar will only be looking to build himself up in his rookie year and show what degree he has earned at the bottom of his career even. right Now.
For Norris, the dynamic is changing now that he is captain and expected to be the main points scorer, unlike when Ricciardo arrived at McLaren, but Lando would feel as though, given last season and a bit. Gone, making this transition wouldn’t be too difficult.
