25 AUGUST, 2017 – Oscar Piastri is hoping to continue his winning form at Rockingham this weekend at the eighth meeting of the 2017 F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost campaign.

Piastri has claimed back-to-back double pole positions and achieved a perfect record of winning from pole position over the last two rounds at Snetterton and Knockhill. The young Aussie has achieved 12 podium finishes, more than any other driver, including five wins and is the only driver to finish in the points in every race so far this season.

“I’m really looking forward to Rockingham. It’s the track I first tested the British F4 car at last year and I’ve always been pretty quick here. We were solid in the test last week and tested a lot of different things on the car. I’m confident the Arden Motorsport cars will be fighting for the podium again this weekend.”

With nine races and 225 points still to be handed out this season nobody can get too comfortable just yet.

“I’m focusing on doing my best for the team. We’re all pushing each other and learning together. It’s been a great season so far and I hope we can keep the momentum going right to the end.”
