Rumor: Piastri to land F1 race seat with McLaren for 2023

According to AutoRacing1.com sources, Alpine Reserve driver, and current F2 champion, Oscar Piastri, will not drive for Williams F1 in 2023, replacing ride-buyer Nicholas Latifi,  like everyone is assuming.

According to our sources, in a shocker, Piastri will race with McLaren next season, and if true, replacing underperforming Daniel Ricciardo. We understand there are still a few hurdles to overcome before Piastri is fully signed by McLaren.

Another rumor says Ricciardo could be demoted to IndyCar in 2023, or simply retire.
