For 2009, Piñeiro remained in the series, but switched to FMS International. He again changed team to Motaworld Racing after Coloni took full control of the FMS International from Valencia onwards.

After his FBMW campaign concluded in September, Piñeiro competed in the final two rounds of the Formula Palmer Audi championship at Silverstone and Snetterton. Piñeiro survived a big accident during the third of the Silverstone races. Running behind Kazim Vasiliauskas, Piñeiro picked up the slipstream from behind the Lithuanian driver's car. He clipped the rear wheel of the car after Vasiliauskas moved his car to defend into Stowe. Piñeiro was launched skywards, before landing and executing a barrel-roll before landing wheels up. Fortunately, he was unhurt.[1] He finished third in the final race at Snetterton, three seconds behind winner Felix Rosenqvist, after an early crash took many of his rivals.[2]
