Esteban Ocon In 2016, he was able to debut in Formor in Formula One, then spent two years at Force India, but by 2019 he lost his seat, so that year the test pilot of Mercedes was French.
However, by 2020, he managed to find a team: Renault signed a two-year contract with Ocon, so he will start with them again this year – all that has changed is that the team will now be called Alpine and his teammate will be Fernando Alonso in place of Daniel Ricciardo.
The 24-year-old pilot said he also helped get back on the field in 2019 by being placed in the spotlight by Netflix.
“They started filming when I was a test pilot and a unique one for Mercedes. Because of Netflix, I was in the spotlight at the time. I don’t want to say that Renault is Netflix certified, but it helped too.”
“Previously, everything was closed to the public in Formula 1, and it was not possible to shoot in the ring, but now even Netflix has the opportunity to shoot on the tracks. Because of that, there is more interest in the sport, so it deserves a change,” Ocon said.
