Despite the setback, Team Principal Andrea Stella praised Piastri’s performance. Piastri’s attitude as a team player stood out. When McLaren decided to give Norris the fully upgraded package, Piastri accepted it gracefully.

Stell said, “He also comes out of this race having proven once again how strong a team player he is. Because, clearly, when I told him, ‘Oscar, we are going to give the sidepods and the floor to Lando’, he wasn’t the happiest in the bottom of his heart. But at no point he made this decision difficult.”
