Ocon: “I intend to continue this adventure”

While he is supported by Mercedes and Toto Wolff, who has been managing his career since 2015, Esteban Ocon will settle permanently within the Alpine team with this new long-term contract, which only drivers like Max Verstappen at Red Bull Racing and Charles Leclerc at Ferrari can be proud of. Assuring in a press release that ” great challenges await us, especially with the new regulations of 2022 “, The Rouennais assures to be” delighted to continue with the team beyond this year ».

Considering his third place at the Sakhir Grand Prix last year as a motivation, Esteban Ocon is “ sure we can achieve our goals by working hard together ». « I can’t wait to tackle this next chapter, but for now we remain focused on this season. », Concludes the French pilot.
