Formula 1 is currently on summer break, and Oscar Paistri, like many other F1 drivers, has been enjoying some of the activities. However, his most recent escapade is a complete “Not okay” zone for his mother, as the Melbourne native is openly criticized for his antics, leaving his admirers apprehensive.

Oscar Piastri has recently made news for his outstanding performance at the Belgian Grand Prix weekend in which he experienced what it was like to be in the lead on the grid for a little period. But with the summer break hitting Piastri, who, like many boys, is still a child at heart, prefers to be around vehicles.

And recently when Piastri posted a picture on Twitter of himself sitting on a bike of 16 Grand Prix winner and two-time Moto2 championships winner Johann Zarco, his mother, like any other mum in the world, instructed him to step away from the bike, which seemed to surprise the spectators and worry them.

She wrote on the social media platform, “Oh no you don’t!!! Move away from the bike Oscar Jack Piastri. My heart can barely cope with cars.” The spectators appeared surprised and anxious when she commanded her kid to get off the bike while using his whole government name.

We all know that Piastri is only 22 years old, but for a parent who typically tries to keep their children out of dangerous situations, we can’t even imagine how it might feel to see their beloved in a car ramping at over 200 mph. However, for his mother, Nicole Piastri, unlike most mothers, the excursion wasn’t so welcoming as she yelled at her son for his impulsive actions. Nevertheless, her taking Piastri’s full name on the social media platform has been seen by the fans as a serious situation for the Melburnian. Given below are some of the reactions.
