Piastri to get Schumacher’s F2 seat

Reigning FIA Formula 3 champion and Renault protege Oscar Piastri will race for Prema Racing in Formula 2 next season, making him a likely replacement for Mick Schumacher.

F2 championship leader Schumacher is expected to be announced as Haas’s second 2021 Formula 1 driver alongside fellow rookie Nikita Mazepin soon.

Australian driver Piastri, 19, raced in the FIA Formula 3 championship this past season.
