Oscar Piastri may have reached his all-time goal of becoming a Formula 1 driver, but what about other items on his bucket list?

Racing drivers are known for wanting to do extreme activities outside of motorsport, with Lewis Hamilton often seen skiing or Charles Leclerc going on a mountaineering trip.

Having achieved podiums and a Sprint race victory in his rookie season, what's on Piastri's "adrenaline" bucket list of things to do?

"I know a lot of racing drivers are adrenaline junkies. For me, racing is enough adrenaline! I don’t have any wild aspirations. I would probably go sky diving before bungee jumping if I’m honest," Piastri told F1.com.

"But it’s not something I’m in a rush to do. I’ve actually had an offer to go – I don’t think it was a fighter jet – but going into a fighter jet would be quite cool just so see how it compares. As long as I don’t throw up..."

Piastri: I’ve been lucky to meet a few cool people in motorsport

The Australian spoke about some of the events he would like to attend and celebrities to meet, admitting that there are two people he would love to meet who are considered the "GOAT" in the world of Basketball.

"Meeting Michael Jordan or LeBron James would be very cool. I mean, I have met some very cool people this year already, which has been nice," said Piastri.

"But yeah, probably Michael Jordan. From racing, I’ve been lucky enough to meet quite a few cool people in motorsport as well, but Michael Jordan’s probably at the top of the list."
