Oscar Piastri believes his "mistakes" in the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix cost him a chance of scoring points.

The McLaren driver started the race from P8 on the grid but ultimately missed out on claiming a point, having ended the day in P11.

While Piastri took positives from his early-race pace, the Australian acknowledged that he had made some errors.

"The first stint was very good, [I made] some good moves and the pace generally felt very good," Piastri said after the race.

"The next couple of stints [I] struggled a little bit, just struggled for a bit of pace and also made a few mistakes here and there.

"Ultimately I think it probably cost us a spot in the points, which is a shame."

Piastri: A lot of learning from the race

Despite this, Piastri thinks that the weekend in Montreal provided some positive signs for McLaren after a more challenging race prior to that in Barcelona.

"[There will be] a lot of learning from that race [in Canada], both good and bad," he explained.

"All in all, [it was] a shame to be so close to the points but [we] still learnt a lot.

"I think our race pace was definitely better than Barcelona, for example. Overall, we can be more positive about our pace."
