Biography of Formula 1 driver Esteban Ocon

Growing up Ocon competed with the likes of Charles Leclerc and Pierre Gasly on the French karting scene. His talents caught the eye of Gravity Sports management, a sister company of Renault F1 team.

The Frenchman took the step into single-seater racing in 2012, competing in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and the Formula Renault 2.0 Alps. Quick and always improving, the youngster won his first title two years later claiming the European Formula 3 Championship with a round to spare after topping the standings from the start.

By the time Ocon won the GP3 Series in 2015, he had been signed to the Mercedes junior programme and named as an acting reserve driver for Renault for the 2016 F1 season. While the Frenchman didn’t get the chance to make his F1 debut with either team, he did take to the grid for backmarker Manor Racing when Rio Haryanto was dropped.

Ocon would drive in the final nine races of the season alongside Pascal Wehrlein, making his debut at the 2016 Belgian Grand Prix. His best finish came in Brazil, where he finished 12th after falling out of a points-scoring position on the final lap of the race.

Two years alongside Sergio Perez at Force India – now Racing Point – followed as part of an engine deal with Mercedes, and it’s there that Ocon showed himself to be deserving of a spot on the F1 grid.

Ocon scored his first Formula 1 point in his first race with the team in Australia, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing as he was involved in a controversial collision with Perez at the Belgian Grand Prix, and the increased tension between the two would carry over to 2018.

Tension at Racing Point

The 2018 Singapore Grand Prix saw things come to a head with the two drivers colliding on the first lap, causing Ocon to crash into the wall. The team called the incident “unacceptable” and banned the two drivers from racing one another, but Ocon’s aggressive driving didn’t end there. He collided with race leader Max Verstappen while trying to unlap himself at the Brazilian Grand Prix, an incident that allowed Lewis Hamilton to take the lead and claim victory. Ocon was handed a stop-and-go penalty, but that wasn’t enough for Verstappen as the two argued and pushed each other after the race, an incident that saw both men summoned by the FIA.

It proved to be Ocon’s penultimate appearance for the team as he was replaced by Lance Stroll at season’s end after the Canadian’s father, Lawrence Stroll, took over the team during the summer break.

After serving as Mercedes reserve driver for 2019, Ocon returned to the grid with Renault and secured his first podium with a second-place finish at the eventful Sakhir Grand Prix that saw Perez take his maiden victory. He’ll be looking to add to that in 2021.

Esteban Ocon in Formula 1

Despite being just 24, Ocon holds the Formula 1 record for most consecutive finishes at the start of his career after completing 27 Grands Prix. That record came to an end at the 2017 Brazilian Grand Prix after colliding with compatriot Romain Grosjean on the first lap of the race.
