The Singapore Grand Prix brought in a lot of excitement. From the qualifications to the race, everyone was anticipating the results. In the end, everyone celebrated Ferrari winning the race with Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, and Lewis Hamilton taking the podium. However, Oscar Piastri silently gave the best performance of his debut season. But it was his hilarious interaction with Martin Brundle that caught everyone’s attention.
Brundle was going around as he usually does to interview the drivers. That’s when he came across Piastri and asked for an interview. However, when Oscar started answering his question he called out for Esteban Ocon. To that, Piastri just walked past. This gained a bad image for Brundle. Fans started calling him out for his unprofessionalism and his bad behavior. One fan said, “Disgraceful” and another commented, “That was very unprofessional from Martin tbh.”

Nonetheless, it looks like the two made it up. After a hilarious exchange on Twitter with Oscar tweeting is Brundle is up for finishing the interview Brundle responded to it. It seems there were no hard feelings between the two. Brundle was only trying to wish Esteban for his birthday.
Um, yes sorry about that Oscar, wasn’t my finest gridwalk moment in 26 years 😳. Just wanted to wish Esteban happy birthday as he strode past, but you were DRS open and full battery and quite rightly dropped me like an Aussie Rules rookie 😁 https://t.co/FOLQv9WyXE

It seems that things were completely fine between the two. And while Piastri was not in the spotlight much, McLaren did not hesitate to celebrate Piastri’s great performance.
How Oscar Piastri sneaked from P17 to P7 without anyone noticing
At the Singapore Grand Prix, there was just too much to not miss and yet there were a few things that were blindsided. Max Verstappen makes up 18 to 0.2 seconds and many more. In short, the race was one of the most interesting ones, according to many. However, what also got blindsided was Oscar Piastri’s run from starting on P17 and finishing the race at P7. The driver gave it his all and held onto his position.
The driver did not really have the best qualification. After his few races with his best qualification being a P3, the driver was not satisfied with a P17. However, he made sure he did not let his disappointment run along at the race too. Although starting behind Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez, he was able to make up 10 positions in a single race. The Aussie finished his race at P7 and earned the team points. Meanwhile, his teammate enjoyed his podium with his friend and rival Carlos Sainz.

The two were applauded for their genius DRS move and helped each other throughout the race to get a 1-2 podium. Nonetheless, Piastri was showered with praises for his brilliance by Zak Brown and Andrea Stella. Piastri was also called the next champion in the rising as he showed promise in his performance.
