Oscar Piastri may have achieved one lifelong dream - racing a Formula 1 car - but he's still got plenty to aim for in his young life, having told formula1.com about some of the items on his bucket list.
The Australian made his F1 debut in 2023, having flown through the ranks of the junior series and landing on his feet at McLaren.
After a rookie season in which he claimed his maiden podium and won the sprint race in Qatar, Piastri sat down to run through some of the people he still wants to meet, and activities he'd still like to try his hand at.

Asked if there was any kind of 'extreme' sport which had caught his eye, such as sky diving or bungee jumping, he admitted: "I know a lot of racing drivers are adrenaline junkies. For me, racing is enough adrenaline! I don’t have any wild aspirations.
"I would probably go sky diving before bungee jumping if I’m honest. But it’s not something I’m in a rush to do. I’ve actually had an offer to go – I don’t think it was a fighter jet – but going into a fighter jet would be quite cool just so see how it compares. As long as I don’t throw up..."
