Oscar Piastri's stunning 2021 has just gone up yet another notch.
The Australian ace was recognised at the FIA prize giving ceremony overnight, winning the coveted Rookie of the Year Award.
“The prize is voted by members of the FIA Drivers Commission, led by the Commission President, nine-time Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen,” explained an FIA statement.
That accolade was secured last weekend in Abu Dhabi, taking six race wins across the season.
Piastri's success marked his third straight championship-winning year, having clinched the Formula Renault Eurocup title in 2019 and Formula 3 in 2020.
