Piastri adamant F1 approach won't change

McLaren driver Oscar Piastri has insisted he will not change approach for the second half of his first F1 campaign.

The Australian was unable to show off his talents as the Woking-based outfit struggled for performance in the early stages of the season before a major upgrade package rejuvenated the MCL60.

Third on the grid at the British Grand Prix translated to fourth in the race - a podium only lost through an ill-timed Safety Car after his pit stop - whilst follow-up performances in Hungary and Belgium, where he secured second in the Sprint, confirmed his promise.

Piastri has impressed alongside Norris having now settled into his role with McLaren and asked if he felt a change of approach was needed having experienced half a season, the rookie told media including RacingNews365: "Not massively I don't think."

Motivation

"I have tried to keep the same approach for the whole year, even when we were struggling towards the back versus being at the front.

"The motivation, of course, it gets a boost when you're fighting for trophies, but the hard work and the way of going about things is still the same.

"You try to get the most out of the car, out of myself - and that's no different whether you're fighting for third or 15th, it is just the prize you get at the end is a bit nicer.

"I don't think I'll change, I will reflect on it and see if there's anything I should change or could be better, but on the whole, I have been quite happy with how I have approached this and I think I'll keep that."
