Renault Sport Academy Driver Oscar Piastri retook the FIA Formula 3 Championship lead after a superb Race 1 effort where the Australian finished third after starting fifteenth.




That put Oscar back into the championship lead going into this weekend’s final round in Mugello. Oscar retired from Race 2 after a collision at Turn 1 and takes an eight point lead into the final round.



Oscar Piastri:
“It was a real rollercoaster of a weekend at Monza. Qualifying was a traffic jam, so I couldn’t set a representative lap, and was then given a three-place grid penalty, meaning I started P15. Race 1 was incredible, I managed to make up 12 places to finish P3.



Race 2 was looking very strong, but unfortunately, I was taken out while battling for the podium. I’m heading into Mugello with the championship lead, so hopefully I can claim the title. It’s a new track for most people on the grid, myself included, but I’m looking forward to getting on track - it looks like an awesome circuit.”
