Piastri sets embarrassing challenge for F1 pundit

Piastri sets embarrassing challenge for F1 pundit

McLaren driver Oscar Piastri has told huge cricket fan Karun Chandhok that he wants to see him wearing an Australian cricket top at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, after the Aussies beat India in the Cricket World Cup final.

Sky Sports F1 pundit Chandhok, who has not been shy to support his beloved India during their home world cup campaign, may have been hoping that he had escaped the heartbreaking defeat by being in Vegas last weekend.

However, Piastri wasn't likely to let the former Formula 1 driver off that easily, and has now given him an unwanted challenge after Australia won their record-extending sixth world cup title.

Unfortunately for all Sky Sports F1 viewers, Chandhok will not be at the Abu Dhabi GP, and revealed on social media that Vegas was his last race of the season.

Chandhok avoids embarrassing challenge
