BREAKING NEWS: Piastri joins Formula 2 for 2021

The 2020 Formula 3 Champion moves a step closer to Formula 1.

"I'm super excited to announce I will be stepping up to F2 with PREMA."

Oscar Piastri

2020 Formula 3 Champion Oscar Piasti will move up into Formula 2 in 2021 where he will continue to race for PREMA.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise given that he won the Championship. He won two races this year, in Austria and Spain respectively and made four other trips to the podium over the course of the season.

After racing with PREMA in Formula 3, it's not a big shock either that he will stay with them and join their F2 team. It's also likely that he will replace Mick Schumacher at the team once Schumacher is announced to join Haas in F1 as many suspect he will.

Piastri is managed by F1 veteran and Channel 4 F1 Presenter Mark Webber, a fellow Aussie, who was one of the first to congratulate him on winning his Championship in Mugello.
