Esteban Ocon begins his second season with the team ahead of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship season. Esteban returned to the sport in 2020 after one year off the grid in 2019. This season will be Esteban’s fourth campaign in Formula 1, which he enters off the back of a promising year last time out on his Formula 1 return, which included a sensational maiden podium in the Sakhir Grand Prix. Esteban is well known to the Enstone-Viry family having spent the 2016 season as the team’s Reserve Driver, and, prior to that, was part of the Lotus junior programme during which he won the FIA European Formula 3 title in 2014. A year later Esteban won the GP3 Series crown.
The 24-year-old has started 67 Grands Prix and accumulated 198 points during that time since making his Formula 1 debut as a teenager at the Belgian Grand Prix in 2016. His best qualifying performance to date remains his superb third place in Belgium in 2018, while his best race result was his second place in Sakhir last December.
Between his debut in Belgium and the 2017 Mexican Grand Prix, Esteban set an all-time Formula 1 record for the most consecutive finishes with 27 straight races without a retirement.
1 support bill. He won the title as a rookie.
