Comment of the day

Esteban Ocon, Renault, Circuit de Catalunya, 2016
Ocon: GP3 and European F3 champion
Esteban Ocon has won two championships in as many seasons and has two F1 teams behind him, but how good are his chances of landing a seat in the near future?

Letting Nicholas Latifi run FP1s as well can only be described as a revenue exercise, which I might have expected from the old Lotus under Genii control, but not a factory team.

And on the subject of Ocon, I can’t see Mercedes standing in the way of him getting to F1 if Renault offered him a seat in the next couple of years, contract or none.

With Hamilton and Rosberg still relatively young, and Wehrlein the anointed successor, it’s hard to see Ocon having much of a shot at driving a Silver Arrow in the foreseeable future.
