My Maserati Ghibli doesn't get driven much. Last oil change was April 2019, have only logged 5k miles since. Mobil 1 5W40 FS with OEM oil filter. Factory interval is 12500 miles/12 months. Due to this virus, I don't have time to do an oil change on it. My dad still drives the car around every once in a while to keep everything moving. At this point, it looks like I prob won't be able to change until June-July, 2-3 months overdue. Is this too risky? Last time 2 times I saw a car go over 12 months OCI it blew piston rings, but they also did a WOT acceleration prior. I'd like to do it myself but worse case I'll have my dad take it to a shop. Just don't trust anybody working on my car after the last incident.
