Ocon explains the moment where he nearly lost the Hungarian GP

Formula 1's newest race winner came across Antonio Giovinazzi in the middle of the race, it gave Sebastian Vettel arguably his best chance to pounce.

Esteban Ocon admits he was not enjoying the lapped traffic throughout the Hungarian Grand Prix, especially when he came across Antonio Giovinazzi during the second half of the race.

Ocon, who went on to win his maiden Formula 1 Grand Prix, was chased hard by Sebastian Vettel for over 60 laps and came under serious pressure when Giovinazzi hindered him momentarily when going into Turn 1.

"I was not enjoying blue flags, I have to say," Ocon told RacingNews365.com and other members of the press. "Blue flags and me is not a great story, either behind or now in front. It was very, very close.

"Once I got the dirty air, I think we were a little bit slower overall than Sebastian in this race and that slowed me down, basically. I was struggling to get into the blue flag on Antonio, for him to clear, and Sebastian got DRS because of that, and he almost made a move.

"He was very, very close. A bit too close for comfort. I just managed to put the gap then, in the tight section and the car felt amazing in that tight section. We could pull the gap. Not all under control but good enough."

Ocon became F1's 111th different race winner and was struggling in recent races particularly at the triple-header events in France and Austria. He signed a new contract to remain with Alpine until the end of 2024 and was surprised his first victory with the team came so suddenly.

"I mean what a fantastic moment. I don’t have much words, to be fair," Said Ocon. "It’s crazy. We were just talking about it with the team not too long ago, that the next step to get for us would be the top step, as we did with second [place] last year.

"We were not expecting that to be [on Sunday], for sure. I can be thankful for the trust the team put in me. We come from a moment where three difficult races, the team gave me trust on that.

We overcame the difficult situation and found our pace back in Silverstone and this weekend, I think it has been a great qualifying and a fantastic race.

"Of course there has been a lot of incidents in that race but you know, as we are in the position, we are chasing opportunities the whole time. [On Sunday] we got it, so what a moment. I will remember that forever."
