PREMA Racing’s Oscar Piastri became the fourth driver to take three FIA Formula 2 pole positions in a row after setting the quickest time in the qualifying session at Sochi.

Piastri, the championship leader extended his lead in the title fight after securing his third consecutive pole position of the 2021 season, beating Carlin’s Jehan Daruvala to pole.

Piastri managed to add four points to his championship tally, extending the gap to rival Guanyu Zhou, who ended the 30 minutes session fourth fastest.

The Australian driver shared his feelings on achieving three impressive consecutive pole positions by describing it as his best run of the year, despite struggling in the opening session at Russia.

He said: “Third pole in a row, very happy with this one as it was probably my best run of the year so far. We struggled a bit in practice this morning, so it was nice to be back at the front again.”

“With the first set, we were already there or thereabouts, and with the second one, the car felt really good.”

Looking back at his performance in qualifying, Piastri managed to put in a confident drive as he went almost two-tenths of a second quicker than Jehan Daruvala in his Carlin at the final moments of the session.

Accordingly, the 20-year-old driver felt like he was driving very well, as he thanked his team.

“I also felt I was driving very well. Big thank you to the team again; we are starting the weekend off with the right foot.”
