Oscar Piastri is turning in a good season at McLaren. Many Formula 1 fans are already touting the Australian as a major talent within motorsport. McLaren struggled at the beginning, but the car seems to be getting better and better. Piastri tells GPblog and others how he is getting more and more used to the car.

Piastri comfortable in McLaren

Piastri says of his first part of the Formula One season: "I think in the first part of the season, there were still so many things I had to learn in terms of racing, in terms of still getting jelling with the car. I feel like now I'm in a much more comfortable place with the car than I was at the start of the year," he says.

The McLaren driver is currently 12th in the world championship. Despite being below the likes of Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon in the standings, he has been throwing up high points in recent races. For example, Piastri finished fourth at Silverstone during the British Grand Prix.
