Piastri signs with Arden for 2018 Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Assault

23.12.2017: Oscar Piastri will remain within the Arden Motorsport team for the 2018 season. The British F4 Vice-Champion will graduate up to the Formula




Oscar Piastri will remain within the Arden Motorsport team for the 2018 season. The British F4 Vice-Champion will graduate up to the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship with the team, following his head-turning Rookie Campaign in single-seater racing.



Piastri, a product of the Arden Motorsport supported Young Racing Driver Academy (YRDA), starred in his first season with Arden Motorsport, taking 2nd overall in the British F4 Championship.



He took six victories and fifteen podiums in total – just being pipped to the title in the final weekend of the season.



The young Aussie’s performances however earned much praise, winning the Joe Tandy Memorial Award for his great achievements, as well as winning the Driver’s Choice Award at the end of the season, after voting from his British F4 rivals.



The tail end of 2017 saw Piastri compete with the team in the final round of the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC Championship, where he once again demonstrated his quality – taking points in both races in unfamiliar equipment, as well as showing race and qualifying pace in all conditions, that could have seen him battling for the podium!



Piastri has been confirmed for 2018 with Arden Motorsport, after a successful winter of Formula Renault Winter Testing to prepare him for the new season.



Arden Motorsport Founder Garry Horner was very happy to secure the services of the talented Aussie for the 2018 season and to carry on within the Arden ‘family’.



Garry Horner
“We are delighted that Oscar will continue to be part of the Arden Team in 2018 and happy to be supporting him in his motorsport career.”



The 2018 Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship begins at the Paul Ricard Circuit, France on the 14-15 April.



Piastri will be heading there following pre-season testing in 2018, with his aim to do what Red Bull Junior Dan Ticktum did this season, fight for the Rookie Championship as well as for Podiums, Wins and a Championship Challenge in the overall Championship.



Oscar Piastri “
I’m really happy to be staying with Arden as I move up to Formula Renault 2.0 for 2018. We’ve had a strong winter test program and driving some of the most iconic tracks in the world is amazing. Having some familiar faces in the garage has allowed me to focus on learning as much as I can before the race season starts.”



Piastri’s teammates will be announced in due course, alongside the remaining drivers for Arden Motorsport’s 2018 British F4, GP3 Series and FIA F2 Championship Campaigns.
