McLaren F1 rookie Oscar Piastri finishes with points after 'difficult' Monaco Grand Prix
Oscar Piastri has plenty of reasons to smile after claiming tenth position inSunday's Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo - a race the McLaren rookie described as his most difficult yet.
The 22-year-old,who started 11th on the grid aftermissing Q3 by just 0.018 seconds on Saturday, survived a tricky circuit that started dry and finished slippery.
Piastri seemed like he might finish just outside the points after being passed by teammate Lando Norris in the final stages, but when Yuki Tsunoda struggled in the slick conditions Piastri took his chance.
It was the young Australian's second points finish of his maiden F1 season - which he admitted afterwards was his most difficult, considering the slippery conditions and his disappointing practice sessions.
