Wins Hungarian Grand Prix
Formula One
July 21, 2024
Piastri has taken his debut Grand Prix victory in Hungary after intra-team drama played out, with McLaren team mate Lando Norris belatedly responding to an order to hand back the lead to the Australian who had lost out due to the team's pit stop strategy, Formula1.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Piastri would lead after the lights out as a three-car battle would rage on lap 1. The McLaren youngster would set the pace early going into opening pit stops. Lap 46 and 48 pit stops would see Norris emerge ahead of Piastri due to a slower stop. The team informed Norris they would like PIastri to retake the lead as the order prior to stops. This would create a big drama on the radio for the remainder of the grand prix and Norris would eventually hand the lead back to Piastri on lap 68. The victory was the first of his career in his 35th start as an F1 driver.
